My IB/Precalculus students need to review the concepts involved in rewriting the equation of a parabola or quadratic in vertex, standard, and intercept form. I show them how to complete the square, which is the hardest part for them, and then I set them to work.
I use this activity within cooperative groups, and I circulate to make sure they are getting the purpose of the questions.
The file includes spiral review problems.
For this worksheet, I expect students to show their work on a separate sheet of paper.
