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,...

Areas of Geometric Shapes with the Same Perimeter
A triangle, square, hexagon, and circle all have a perimeter of one unit. Eighth graders must attempt to find the area of each and arrange them in order from least to greatest areas. A terrific task for applying four different area...

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...

Function Families and Their Connections Including Vertical Shift of an Absolute Value Function
One of the strongest tools an algebra learner develops is the ability to quickly and accurately graph almost any given function. Often doing this quickly and accurately requires rigid transformations to a parent function, demonstrated in...

How Do You Find the Vertex of a Quadratic Function?
Trying to find the vertex of a quadratic equation? Remember that the vertex is the minimum or maximum point of the quadratic equation and can be identified on a graph of the equation. First use the axis of symmetry formula to find the...
