- Product Description
This is a cut and tape colored musical "chain" activity used to practice graphing quadratic equations. The teacher should print the activity on three different colored pieces of paper for each student. The student then cuts out the pieces and tapes them in order to create a colored chain by matching the quadratic equation to its graph. Students can check their work by comparing their chain with others. The colors should match! Each arrow in the chain has a music note based off of the virtualpiano.net piano with "key assist". When the chain is completed correctly, students can use the piano from virtualpiano.net on a SmartBoard or laptop device to play the melody and guess the song. The song I have put on this chain is the theme song to "Beauty and the Beast". The quadratic equations used are in factored form, standard form, and vertex form. The colored chain can be used to decorate your room!
Identify the effect on the graph of replacing 𝘧(𝘹) by 𝘧(𝘹) + 𝘬, 𝘬 𝘧(𝘹), 𝘧(𝘬𝘹), and 𝘧(𝘹 + 𝘬) for specific values of 𝘬 (both positive and negative); find the value of 𝘬 given the graphs. Experiment with cases and illustrate an explanation of the effects on the graph using technology.
Use the process of factoring and completing the square in a quadratic function to show zeros, extreme values, and symmetry of the graph, and interpret these in terms of a context.
Graph linear and quadratic functions and show intercepts, maxima, and minima.
