Students are given 6 quadratic equations to solve using the method of their choice: graphing, factoring, formula, or complete the square. The answer key has a suggested method but that is not the only way to find that solution.
Students will convert 2 quadratic equations from standard to vertex form, then 2 from vertex form to standard form. Students can then practice graphing when given vertex form while identifying the vertex and axis of symmetry. Photo of answers
Students will have the opportunity to research their own topic and gather 10 data points. Using the data they gathered, they will run a linear regression and quadratic regression on their graphing calculator to determine which model fits best. This
The calculator steps for Linear Regression on the calculator can be very confusing. This handout lists them out as well as runs through a practice problem with students. I'm from Houston and this lesson fit in right when the Astro's were in the
