Approximate the Zero

Resource:
Approximate the Zero

Chunk a graph to use the relationships between distances on a graph to estimate the value of a zero of the graph.

All Resources From:
Equivalent Representations

Resource:
Equivalent Representations

During this week students create and study different representations of quadratic functions in order to make connections between the different representations. Some of the parts of these activities could easily be turned into Connecting Representations task instead of a worksheet. 

All Resources From:
Factored Equations and Polynomial Graphs

Resource:
Factored Equations and Polynomial Graphs

Students will connect factors of polynomial equations with the intercepts of their corresponding graph.

Function Transformations

Resource:
Function Transformations

Students learn how to transform parent functions into other functions using transformations.

All Resources From:
Graphing Stories

Resource:
Graphing Stories

10 videos each with a situation that students model by sketching a graph.

All Resources From:
Graphs and Descriptions of Parabolas

Resource:
Graphs and Descriptions of Parabolas

Students will connect a graph of a parabola with a written description of its axis and number of roots. 

Hoisting the Flag 1

Resource:
Hoisting the Flag 1

Students are given a situation about a flag being raised and several graphs. They have to explain why each graph might work and what is going on to model the situation.

Interpreting graphs modelling different aspects of weather in a region

Resource:
Interpreting graphs modelling different aspects of weather in a region

Interpret and compare graphs of: temperature (in degrees Fahrenheit), solar radiation (in watts per square meters), and cumulative rainfall (in inches)) measured by sensors in Santa Rosa, CA in February 2012.

Matching graphs to situations

Resource:
Matching graphs to situations

There are 6 containers that are being filled with water at a constant rate, and 9 graphs that represent the height of the water in a container as a function of the volume of water in the container. Students must match the each container to its appropriate graph.

Reverse Taboo Trios

Resource:
Reverse Taboo Trios

Students work in groups of 3 to: describe a graph, draw the graph they hear, and record the oral description(s) of the graphs. This will lead to discussions about academic vocanulary regarding graphs and can serve as a pre-assessment as well.

Six Flags End-of-year Algebra Trip Packet

Resource:
Six Flags End-of-year Algebra Trip Packet

This folder has a cover pages and six extended, scaffolded problems that are designed for an end-of-year trip to Six Flags Great America. It covers linear and quadratic functions and transformations. The problems refer specifically to the rides and experiences that students will have while at the park, while at the same time most of the problems can be finished at home or on the bus. Each problem has a rubric for standard-based scoring of problems. Feel free to download and change at will. Please don't change the originals.
