Product Description

In this Quadratic Functions GNAW Activity your Algebra 2 or PreCalculus students will explore quadratic functions that can be represented graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. They will make connections among these representations. There are four different versions to be solved by factoring, completing the square, graphing and the Quadratic Formula. Each function has leading coefficient of one.

Plus a BONUS VERSION with leading coefficient greater than one which can be used as an assessment.Who doesn't love a game of Four-Square?

Teaching Suggestions:

✎ As a general review of methods to solve quadratics

✎ As a group activity

✎ As a general assessment

What is GNAW and the Rule of Four?

The “Rule of Four” or G.N.A.W. Approach is a method of thinking about mathematics in order to make connections through multiple representations of our mathematical thinking. Students should be able to represent mathematics in graphic, numeric, algebraic, and verbal formats. G.N.A.W.

Why should you use the GNAW approach?

By implementing this process into your classes, students will gain a deeper understanding of the mathematics. The Rule of Four helps students connect and validate concepts and techniques.

How can you use the Rule of Four?

Teachers can model this approach during instructional time to set the “tone” for expected thinking and reasoning. Then, give your students many chances to practice the techniques. It is also important that students learn to make connections between the different representations.
