Students use their graphing calculators to graph quadratic functions. In this graphing quadratic functions lesson plan, students plot points and determine functions.
This clip covers a lot of ground and is perfect for those needing a little extra help remembering how to graph a quadratic function. It begins with a multi-step problem which requires the learner to graph a quadratic function, set up a coordinate system, find the axis of symmetry, domain, and range. This is a clear, slow, helpful, and really boring video. The narrator actually sounds as if she's in pain, horrible pain, but she's still determined to deliver her last algebra lesson.
After making a correction to the last problem in his previous video, Sal explains how to graph quadratic functions. Those who have a hard time with the concept of graphing algebraic functions will find Sal's instruction and easygoing manner a welcome change from staring at textbooks.
Build comprehension surrounding quadratic functions. Learners follow guided questions and exercises to explore the variables in the quadratic equation. In part a of this worksheet, they identify and describe the role of different parts of a quadratic equation. In the second part, they identify the intercepts and draw the graph of given quadratic equations.
For this graphing quadratic equations worksheet, students graph 8 quadratic functions. Coordinate grids are included on the worksheet.
In this quadratic function worksheet, students solve and graph quadratic functions. Functions contain both positive and negative integers, fractions, and perfect squares. Graph paper is located below each equation. There are 36 quadratic equations in this four-page worksheet.
Watch this video to learn about the parent quadratic function. The instructor walks learners through this step-by-step process.
Eleventh graders investigate inverse functions.  In this Algebra II instructional activity, 11th graders use their prior knowledge of linear, exponential,and quadratic functions to create a graph of an equation they have never seen before.
In this Algebra II worksheet, 11th graders compare and contrast linear and quadratic functions.  The five page worksheet contains four worked examples and four practice problems. Solutions are not provided for the practice problems. 
Students identify the concavity of a quadratic function. For this algebra lesson, students graph quadratic functions by hand. They identify the real and complex zeros and whether the parabola opens up or down.
Students graph quadratic functions. In this algebra lesson plan, students identify the vertex and intercepts of a quadratic equations and graph the parabola. They find the axis of symmetry and make a table to find the values of the parabola.
This is an introductory video on how to identify a quadratic function. This video explains what a quadratic function is and what the graph of a quadratic function looks like. The instructor goes through four examples of quadratic functions and four non-examples of quadratic functions in order to clarify the requirements for a quadratic function. A good video for learners who are confused about quadratic functions or just learning how to identify them.
It's all in the family! Convert the formula for quadratic functions to 3 different forms to understand the quadratics family. The class graphs parabolas in vertex form, standard form, and factored form. They identify the vertex and x-intercepts. The lesson plan provides thorough examples and explanations to promote comprehension.
Students solve quadratic equations and identify the different properties. In this algebra lesson, students identify the vertex, axis of symmetry and the direction the graph opens and why.
This thorough review strives to cement understanding of quadratic functions, including how to predict the type of graph they will create, how they differ from linear functions, and how to find the zeros of the function. A listing of prerequisite knowledge, such as quadratic equations, and future applications to the study of physics is included.
Apply quadratic function graphs to real-life scenarios to develop deeper comprehension through mathematical modeling. This lesson does not provide explicit activities, but rather can be used as a guide. It lists a variety of essential questions, assessment considerations, and instructional strategies that can be adapted to fit the needs of your classroom.
In this algebra worksheet, students graph quadratic functions and identify the vertex, axis of symmetry, maximum and minimum and intercepts. There are 7 questions.
In this analyzing graphs learning exercise, students write quadratic equations in vertex form. They identify the vertex, axis of symmetry and indicate the direction of the openings. Students graph quadratic functions. They write an equation for a given parabola. This one-page learning exercise contains 18 problems.
Students solve quadratic functions. In this algebra instructional activity, students graph a parabola using the vertex and intercepts. They analyze graphs and write an equation to go along with it.
In this modeling data worksheet, students use quadratic functions to model data using three different methods.  This worksheet provides explanations and an example.  Additionally, students are given the steps to find the maximum or minimum values using a graphing calculator.
