Do your students struggle with identifying minima, maxima, and end behavior? This activity allows even struggling students to practice since they simply have to match the graphs to their answers.
This activity comes with 10 task cards and answer cards. Each task card contains a graph and a question such as "The function has relative minima at what points?" It can be used as a station activity or in pairs or small groups.
Many of the graphs contain polynomial functions, but there are also absolute value and radical functions represented. This can be used at the beginning of an algebra 2 course before students have learned the specific characteristics of each of these types of functions. I use it at the beginning of the year in Algebra 2 to help reinforce the identification of these key features of the graphs.
