Product Description

I do this activity after my intro to quadratics notes and homework. The students need to know what a vertex is and what a minimum and maximum means. Students use a graphing calculator to find the following:

-coordinate point of the vertex

-the equation for the axis of symmetry

-if it has a minimum or maximum y-value

This document has 10 steps with some picture of what the students should see on the graphing calculator to help them know if they are in the right place. After doing the 10 steps there are 3 practice problems for them to try using the 10 steps.
