In this mathematics lesson students learn about sketching quadratic graphs by identifying the y intercept, roots and turning point of the parabola. As learning progresses students interchange between solving quadratics using factorisation, completing the square or the quadratic formula.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
All students should be able to calculate and show the roots of a quadratic in a sketched diagram.
Most students should be able to sketch a quadratic graph to illustrate its turning point, roots and y-intercept value.
Some students should be able to use sketched graphs to determine the number of solutions to two or more simultaneous equations.
