This fun activity guides learners through an exploration of the effects of replacing f(x) with -f(x), f(x) + c, k f(x), and f(x + c). Using graphing calculators, students experiment with variations of the graph of y = x^2 to design a fireworks display. The process leads to the discovery of how to change an equation to make its graph shift right, left, up, or down. The activity is open-ended and allows learners the freedom to explore within minimal constraints.
The equations look different, but their graphs are the same. How can that be? This activity leads your mathematicians in an exploration of three different forms of the same quadratic function. After comparing the equations, their graphs, and key points on the graphs, learners determine the advantages of using one form for identifying intercepts and a different form for identifying coordinates of the vertex. In addition to the exploration, the activity includes five exercises in writing a quadratic equation whose graph satisfies certain conditions.
Pupils explore quadratic functions in this algebra lesson. They investigate transformation of quadratic functions using the TI calculator. They use the vertex form for this lesson.
