• Product Description
• Standards
This inquiry resource will introduce students to parabolas, the parent function, shifts to the graph, vertex form, and standard form. The discovery stations, lessons, and practice problems give an in depth study of vertex form.

The resource includes the following 7 parts:

•Intro: Students graph the quadratic parent function and learn important terms.
•Observations Stations: Students visit 7 stations to notice, wonder, and predict shifts to the quadratic graph as a result of changes to the equation.
•Testing Predictions: Students test the predictions they made in the previous part by creating tables of values and graphing.
•Challenge: Students use what they learned in the previous parts to graph challenging quadratic equations in vertex form.
•Forms of Quadratics: Students explore the benefits of vertex form and standard form.
•Finding Zeros in Vertex Form: Students substitute 0 for y to identify the zeros.
•Vertex Form Practice: Students practice everything they have learned about quadratics in an assortment of graphing and real world problems.

Many of the parts work great for partners!

The discovery format of the lessons included will help your students to truly understand how quadratic equations work. The majority of the graphing is done by hand. Students will gain confidence in their own abilities to graph quadratics instead of relying on a calculator.

The focus of this pack of lessons is vertex form. The lessons could be used after standard form is taught, but I recommend starting with these lessons and introducing vertex form first!

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.
Write a function that describes a relationship between two quantities.
Graph linear and quadratic functions and show intercepts, maxima, and minima.
Graph functions expressed symbolically and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases.
For a function that models a relationship between two quantities, interpret key features of graphs and tables in terms of the quantities, and sketch graphs showing key features given a verbal description of the relationship.
