This product is a Flipped Algebra lesson in Quadratic Functions. This lesson focusses on various forms of quadratic functions, including graphical, standard, vertex, factored and tabular forms. It can be used with Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and/or Geometry.
The lesson includes a 12 minute video that students can watch for homework, in MPEG-4 format, also linked to a youtube video that I created. A notes template will support and engage students as they watch the video. A lesson plan is included with objectives, essential questions, CCSS-M standards, interactive links, lesson components, and tasks.
I created this lesson for my Algebra 1 students and it went very well. In my math classes, we don't focus on memorizing steps and formulas. Instead, we seek to make sense of the mathematics we are learning. Translating between various forms of quadratic equations will help students gain deeper understanding.
My students use interactive student notebooks, so I created a quadratics booklet to facilitate practice translating forms of quadratic equations.
An exit task will allow students to demonstrate they have met the learning targets.
This lesson enables students to translate between forms with or without the use of a graphing calculator. It does not focus on factoring quadratics or completing the square, although those strategies could certainly be added to the lesson.
In my flipped classes, students read a section from their textbook and take notes for homework. Alternatively, they could choose to watch a video and complete a notes template. I also include links to interactive tools related to quadratics. The next day in class, we will go over one of the examples presented from the homework to begin class.
The files, all in pdf format are included in a compressed folder. To print the booklet, most printers have a 2-sided option which requires every other page to be upside down. I have included formats that I believe will be easiest for you to print.
Please let me know how this lesson goes with your classes, and which classes you used it with! I think you and your students will enjoy it! Also if you have technical issues with your printer, please let me know and I can help.
