reSolve: Real-World Algebra: Quadratic Functions
This sequence of three lessons explores different representations of quadratic functions, with particular emphasis on turning points in quadratic graphs. Students use images of trajectories, inscribe their own curves using GeoGebra and then further explore the algebraic representation of their curves. Each lesson is outlined in detail including curriculum links, vocabulary, materials needed, sample answers, discussion points and student resources. This sequence is part of the reSolve: Mathematics by Inquiry special topic 'Bringing the real world into algebra'.
