Linear vs. Quadratic
This is a one-sided practice document with 3 riddles. The student is given 8 functions (some linear some quadratic) and 3 clues about the equation (such as being in standard form, slope-intercept form or that of a quadratic in factored form) and other clues about the function's graph such as its zeros or where it crosses the y-axis. The student uses the clues to figure out which equation is being described. This page of 3 riddles really sees if the student understands the difference between a quadratic and a linear function and some of its key attributes. Students could work in pairs. Key included.
All of my resources are color-coded by topic. To find more resources on Quadratics please return to my store and look for the royal blue background or choose the Quadratics
category on the left-hand side.
