Graphing quadratic equations of the form f(x) = ax^2 + c 9 to 12
(0 stars, 1 ratings)
In this lesson, we explore the effect of the constant C in the quadratic function f(x) = ax^2. Students will be able to observe that C shifts the quadratic function up/down.
Quadratic Equations in Action 9 to 12
(0 stars, 1 ratings)
Students will video and analyze real-life situations that produce a parabolic curve.
Podcasting Parabolas 7 to 12
(0 stars, 1 ratings)
After an introductory lesson on parabolas, students will research parabolas, the general equation of a parabola from three points and photograph pictures of parabolas found in everyday life. Students will then organize the data to create and publish a podcast to be share with their peers in the classroom, as well as, around the world. (This is a 3-day lesson for the block schedule)
Seeing Math Everywhere We Look 9 to 9
(0 stars, 2 ratings)
Through an exploration and photographic capture of parabolas throughout our environment. students will move from the “When am I ever going to use this?” to “I see it being used” stage in math class – specifically for quadratic equations. They will then research the related jobs necessary to "bring the parabola to life."
The Algebra of Angry Birds© 6 to 8
(0 stars, 2 ratings)
Angry Birds is a popular application (app) that features birds that are launched from a slingshot at green pigs. Students will explore algebraic and physics content that is embedded in the game.
Parabolas in Flight 9 to 12
(0 stars, 2 ratings)
Students will film a trajectory then calculate the quadratic model for their trajectory. They will create a video to display online at teachertube.
Real World Equations! 9 to 12
(0 stars, 1 ratings)
Students will use digital cameras to take photos of items or situations that can be modeled using algebraic equations.
Virtual Math Portfolio 7 to 9
(0 stars, 1 ratings)
Students will create a customized web page to post a series of unit-based math projects. They will keep a copy of the web page as a virtual portfolio of their exciting math year.
