PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity requires critical thinking and provides a deeper understanding of the properties of quadratics. Students should work collaboratively and learn from group discussions.

First, students are asked to determine the following properties after looking at a parabola: maximum/minimum, domain, range, vertex, axis of symmetry, number of y-intercepts and number of x-intercepts.
Then, they are given a task card with a function and must graph it before answering the same questions.
Next, they are given another task card and asked to determine the same properties listed above without looking at a graph or graphing the function.
Lastly, they are asked to come up with generic rules to determine each property. This provides a great challenge and critical thinking opportunity.

Included:
-Teacher Resource page with necessary prior knowledge, purpose and teaching suggestions (1 page)
-Student Worksheet including all topics described above (2 pages)
-Function Task Cards (2 pages)
-Answer Key (8 pages)
