This is a scavenger hunt activity that includes 20 problems over quadratic functions:
-determine domain and range from a graph and from a word problem (4 problems)
-identify key features of graphs of quadratic functions (4 problems)
-write quadratic functions in standard and vertex form (2 problems)
-transformations of the quadratic parent function (4 problems)
-solving quadratic functions using factoring, complete the square, square root, and quadratic formula (4 problems)
-relate linear factors (1 problem)
-quadratic regression (1 problem)
You will hang the problems around the room or in the hallway, and students will start at any page. They will answer the problem at the BOTTOM of the page, and then find the answer at the TOP of another page. Then answer the problem at the bottom and continue the process. They should end where they began!
I have also included an option where you could use this activity as a card sort as well.
There is a recording sheet and an answer key.
