Students practice identifying graphs of quadratics and comparing them to the equation written in standard form in this matching card activity. One half of the 20 pairs of matching cards has a graph of the parabola and the other half has the quadratic equation written in standard form. Students work individually, in pairs or small groups to match the cards.
Identifying key points in a function is an important skill for students in Algebra 1 and Algebra 2.
