This product is a set of 12 Task Cards containing quadratic word problems. Solutions involve finding the maximum or minimum, x-intercepts, y-intercepts or a value for x when given a y-value. Along with solving the equations there is a visual aspect to the word problems where students will need to locate their solution on the sketch of the parabola provided so they can relate the solution to that part of the graph (max, min, y-intercept, x-intercept, or some other point on the parabola).
A blank Answer Sheet is provided for students to show work and record their answers. This activity takes a full period and on days when I might run short on time I skip the last 2 problems or count them as extra credit.
This works as a great review near the end of the chapter to review the concepts of finding the vertex, intercepts, and solving a quadratic equation.
Answer key is included.
Covers Common Core Standards: CED-A.2, REI-B.4.b, IF-B.4, IF-C.&.a, IF-C.8.a.
