This product will strengthen the student ability when writing quadratic equations. The student will have the chance to practice writing the quadratic equation of a 12 different scenarios (models). When students complete this packet, their understanding of writing quadratic equations will help their growth and they’ll be able to relate the skills learned in this packet with many real world applications.
In this packet, the student will be asked to find the equation of the quadratic function written in:
1. SF given the VF of the parabola
2. VF given the SF of the parabola
3. SF given the vertex and a point
4. VF given the vertex and a point
5. SF given the vertex and the y-intercept
6. VF given the vertex and the y-intercept
7. SF given 3 points on the graph of the parabola
8. VF given 3 points on the graph of the parabola
9. SF given the graph of the parabola
10. VF given the graph of the parabola
11. SF given the intercept form of the parabola (the parabola is written as the products of its factors)
12. VF given the intercept form of the parabola
In this packet, there are 5 different versions of a worksheet is included where in each worksheet the students are asked to work with the stated 12 models. For every model, there are 6 problems which gives a total of 72 possible problem per version with their answer key.
You could only assign the odd problems, or the even ones, or you could assign the multiples of 3 questions. Based on the needs of the students, assign as many problems as you could.
In this product, a detailed step by step solution is provided for the first problem in every category in the first version. In other words, the detailed step by step solution is provided for questions #: 1, 7, 13, 19, 25, 31, 37, 43, 49, 55, 61, & 67. This solution is a “possible approach” and not necessarily the only approach.
You could assign this packet as a homework, in stations, as task cards, cooperative operation, formative assessment, and most importantly for practice as “PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT”.
This product could be used in Algebra I, Algebra II, Pre-Calc, or any class that works with the standard form and the vertex form of the quadratic function.
The preview included in this product shows an example for each of the 12 models listed above.
For a final note, In addition to the illustrated step by step solution, I have included the worksheets as a single file with 25 pages as well 5 separate files with 5 pages each to allow you open one version at a time.
I hope that your students enjoy this product as much as mine did.
