In this activity, students work in small groups to make connections between the graphs of quadratic functions to three forms of equations: Standard Form, Vertex Form and Intercept Form. This activity has 8 problems: 2 of which a graph is given and students come up with the 3 forms of equations and 2 each where 1 form is given and students create the graph and the other 2 forms. The goal is that students develop skills in moving from one form of the equation to others while also connecting the graphs to the equations. The Smart Notebook file contains the questions and answers. In my classroom, I have students the first question with a partner. After a couple minutes, I have them quickly switch partners before showing the answer to the previous question and then having them work on the next question with their new neighbor. Students have fun and learn more about quadratics all at the same time!
