In this product, students "could" come to the board and drag and drop the appropriate description of the effect of "a" on the graph of the quadratic function written in standard form. The available descriptions are:
Each one of the above descriptions has an infinite cloner which allows for multiple "drags".
In the smart notebook file attached, you'll find a page containing an interactive name chooser. Just fill in the names ahead of time and select any of your students at random to go to the board. Also, don't forget that you can still use this product by using Smart Notebook Interactive Viewer. This program is a free download from www.smarttech.com.
If you don't have a smart notebook software, you could use the attached PDF file.
This file maybe used as:
- an entrance ticket
- an exit ticket
- an assessment
- in groups, or
- as you wish.
