Quadratic Functions - Max and Min

Students identify the maxima and minima of quadratic functions. After a teacher explanation and demonstration of quadratic functions, students solve quadratic equations and graph the solution to find the maxima and minima of each function. They compare graphing to solve the equation to completing the square. Independently, students solve problems.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
