Looking for a way to scaffold and help your students be ready to graph quadratic functions? Use this short assignment to help them become familiar with the anatomy of a quadratic function. They will identify the vertex, axis of symmetry, maximum and minimum, roots, zeros, solutions, x-intercepts, y-intercept and the number of roots.
Great for struggling students who really need foundational support. Let them look at graphs given first before you require them to create their own graphs from the equation from scratch.
