Do your students need a little extra practice understanding the relationship between the equations in factored form, the x-intercepts, and the end behavior? This is a very engaging set of 30 cards very useful in Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, or Calculus. This will also help the students prepare for Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment.
I thought of three different ways to use this one set of cards. I am certain you can come up with more.
STAND UP - PAIR UP
Each student is given a card. They search for their partner that has its match. The first set of partners to find each can be awarded a prize. This is a great way to give students a voice in their learning.
Print out the graphs and cut apart. Print out the equation pages for students to share. Print out an answer page OR have students take a piece of paper and write 1-15.
Before the game, the teacher tapes all of graphs onto walls or desks in the classroom. The students sharing the equations pages, figure out and record which equation would generate which graph.
These types of activities are quite fun played in pairs as a concentration game. I find this a great way to engage early finishers.
