This resource walks students through graphing quadratic inequalities of all types - including equal to and not equal to inequalities. All functions are given in vertex form. Students must graph given inequalities and write equations of given graphs

Types:

Students can work collaboratively or individually to solve the problems on the task cards (2 Per Card). First problem on task card is general system of equations and the second problem on task card is a real world scenario. Answer Key is included as

Types:

CCSS:

This is a "dominos" like activity where students will choose a card to start on, set up and solve the proportion problem, find the answer on another card and then solve the problem on the same card that had their answer on it.
They continue this

This worksheet allows students to investigate the vertex form of a parabola. It assumes some knowledge of transformations is present, but also allows for students to discover and connect it to a few real world scenarios in the beginning as well.

Types:

CCSS:

Students will complete this activity where they match a question to an answer on a new card. Example. Card A's question may lead them to Card H. They answer the question on Card H and then it's answer is on Card D, etc. Eventually they will make a

This worksheet was used as a mixed practice task for quadratic review in a senior applied math course and as a formative practice task while teaching the various forms of quadratic functions - Vertex Form, Factored Form, and Standard Form.

Radical Simplification is quite possibly the worst standard ever, right? In order to keep kids more engaged, I have created the tasks which are scaffolded from basic prime factorization (Task 1), to Simplification of Square Roots without variables

Types:

This is a resource incorporating multiple representations of exponential functions including graphs, tables, equations, and scenarios. Students must use their knowledge of exponential functions (this would be after students have some formal

This task requires students to work in pairs (so homogeneous pairing is very important here because they work together to move forward) to complete polynomial operations - addition, subtraction, multiplication, composition.
Within their pairs, one

CCSS:

This allows students to work on finding key information of vertices and x-intercepts and write equations in vertex and factored form from starting in standard.
You could easily modify this document to give them different pieces of information

This is a scavenger hunt on Factoring and Graphing Polynomial Functions. The answers are included on the last pages. To set this up, I cut manila folders in half and attach the answers to the outside.
Make sure when you set it up you do not put

This is set up to be an interactive notebook entry, but could also be used as an assessment or as guided notes without a notebook as well. I found good response from this as a tool in my own classroom when learning to write quadratic equations after

Types:

Students explore factors, prime numbers, and prime factorization.

This activity is for use with instruction on the real number system. It allows students to interpret statements and determine if they are always, sometimes, or never true based on the real number system.
I had students glue it into their

This is a chart my students put into their interactive notebook for the rules of divisibility. We left off 7 and 8 because they were not as intuitive (or useful!) as the other rules for them.
They're set on a half sheet to fit into one side of an

This is a set of guided notes that were used in a unit on quadratic functions for my student's interactive notebooks, but could be used without an INB as well. It specifically covers factored form of a quadratic function. This is set up as two per

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and College Algebra in a high needs urban school in Louisville, KY for the past 5 years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love to try to engage the students as much as possible in discovery and inquiry, but realize that is not always possible depending on the student and their individual needs.
