## Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Graphing Functions: Lines, Quadratics, Square and Cube Roots (and Absolute Values) - Section 2: Graphing Quadratics

After completing the Entry Ticket, students work in groups to practice the skill of graphing quadratic functions. I typically provide students with examples to graph from Kuta Software.

In terms of how students graph the functions, I try to give students options to choose tools and technology strategically, in line with Math Practice 4. For example, students can use the TI NSpire applications on the classroom iPads and screen shot a picture of the function and table that they create. Alternatively, some students learn about structures and relationships between graphs and equations by graphing by hand.
