When I teach students how to solve quadratic equations by graphing, I often find that they get bogged down in just plotting the quadratic, instead of focusing on the concept. For that reason, I created this worksheet with the quadratics already graphed, and the students need to plot horizontal lines to find the points of intersection.
I use this activity within cooperative groups, and I circulate to make sure they are getting the purpose of the questions.
The file includes spiral review problems.
This worksheet is intended to be written on directly.
Please download the pdf preview file first, so you can see exactly what's included; the product file is a word document, which you may personalize for your students.
