This Rewriting Quadratic Equations in Different Forms lesson plan also includes:
Help algebra learners gain insight into the different forms of a quadratic equation. Using a motion sensor and a can on a table that has one end slightly elevated, learners gather data from rolling the can. They graph their data in relation to time and distance. Then looking at quadratic equations in three forms (vertex form, factored form, standard form), they compare them graphically and algebraically.
- Real-world example of collecting data to model a quadratic equation
- Contains introductory notes and follow-up questions
- No student worksheet included
