#### Warm-up

*10 min*

Each day, students complete a Warmup that usually consists of spiraling the previous day's material, in addition to older material. Warm-up problems also sometimes extend lessons that students have encountered before to more unfamiliar contexts.

I often use a "mixtape" approach that pushes the kids to see/review multiple types of problems - the cumulative effect of which can be really powerful. Today's warm-up both reviews the previous day and then reaches back to linear functions and bivariate data for an additional review.

#### Homework

*15 min*

Tonight's homework challenges students with a number of different applications but a primary emphasis on the Axis of symmetry and the vertex of a parabola.
