Graphs of Quadratic Functions
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,...

Creating and Graphing Linear Equations in Two Variables
This detailed presentation starts with a review of using key components to graph a line. It then quickly moves into new territory of taking these important parts and teasing them out of a word problem. Special care is taken to discuss...

Solving Systems of Linear Equations
Solving systems of equations underpins much of advanced algebra, especially linear algebra. Developing an intuition for the kinds and descriptions of solutions is key for success in those later courses. This intuition is exactly what...

Exploring Quadratic Graphs - Concept
Show your class how to use properties to make graphing easier with a resource that explores the graphs of quadratics. Using tables to determine the points to graph, pupils discover the symmetry of parabolas in order to short cut the...
