Learners are given a graph of a parabola on a coordinate system, but intercepts and vertex are not labeled. The task is to analyze eight given quadratic functions and determine which ones might possibly be represented by the graph. The focus of the exercise is on determining key features of a graph, such as intercepts, maximum or minimum, and which way the graph opens, from the equation. The activity is best suited for use in Algebra I after studying the different forms of a quadratic equation, or as a review exercise in Algebra II.
