### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

❤ ❤ ❤ 5/26/16: This product is updated with 10 additional Relay Race questions on Graphing Quadratic Functions given in VERTEX FORM❤ ❤ ❤

Relay Race 1 - 10: Quadratic Function written in Standard Form

Relay Race (1 - 10) activities reviews the understanding of graphing quadratic functions. The process is divided into 4 major steps:

1. Find the Equation of the Axis of Symmetry (AOS).
2. Use the AOS to find the vertex
3. Use the Vertex to generate a chart. The vertex is the first point in the chart. 2 other points are needed. I ask my students to pick 2 other points either to the right or to the left of the AOS so they could use symmetry (reflection across the AOS). Students could use the y-intercept as one of the points to speed up the process of graphing in the following step.
4. Graph the AOS, then, graph the points in the table and use reflection across the AOS to graph the other half of the parabola.

Relay Race 11 - 20: Quadratic Function written in Vertex Form

Relay Race (11 - 20) activities reviews the understanding of graphing quadratic functions. The process is divided into 4 major steps:
1. Identify the Vertex
2. Identify the Axis of Symmetry
3. Use the Vertex to generate a chart. The vertex is the first point in the chart. 2 other points are needed. I ask my students to pick 2 other points either to the right or to the left of the AOS so they could use symmetry (reflection across the AOS). Students could use the y-intercept as one of the points to speed up the process of graphing in the following step.
4. Graph the AOS, then, graph the points in the table and use reflection across the AOS to graph the other half of the parabola.

When the group members complete the 4 steps mentioned above (in either form), the round is then completed and they must bring it to the teacher to check it. If the graph is incorrect, the teacher will give the sheet back to the team to confer and figure out the mistake and fix it from there.

The teacher keeps track of the rounds on the attached Tracking Sheet.

There are a total of 10 rounds (10 different problems). The last 2 rounds have fractions as leading coefficient (for a challenge).

The rounds could be used as TASK cards, EXIT TICKETS, SHORT FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT, IN STATIONS, FOR PRACTICE, AS A REVIEW, ... ETC.

Finally, in the directions provided, I shared two different ways to conduct the relay race. One way by assigning a problem per round, the other is by assigning 4 per setting.
