Lesson Plan 1: Up, Down, Right, Left - Function Families
Students work in small groups to draw the trajectory of several scenarios. They label parts of the resulting parabola (vertex, axis of symmetry). Students complete four stations to explore quadratic functions.

Parabolas Are All Around Us
Moving parabolas off of graph paper and into the real world is the task at hand in this detailed poster project. First, learners perform a cumulative activity identifying many characteristics of an assigned quadratic equation. Next, they...

Exploring Quadratic Data : Transformation Graphing
High schoolers analyze the vertex form of a parabola and find an approximate fit of a model. They explain the quadratic parabola function and its properties by developing quadratic models. They use translation and dilation to change the...
