Reflection: Intervention and Extension Write That! - Section 2: Put It Into Action


This activity gave one of my students particular difficulty so I worked with her individually for a bit while the rest of the class went forward successfully on their own.  Everyone else seemed to do well with my factoring 2525 analogy but I had to find another connection for my struggling student.  It took a bit of work but finally helped her to understand was a biology example.  I talked about taking apart an organism to understand how all the parts work together and maybe because of her farm/ranch background, she said "So factoring this Punkinator function into its parts will let me see how it works so I can tell where the punkins will hit without graphing it...I think I get it now."  I'm sure she'll have other stumbles as the year progresses but at least this time she was able to work most of the rest of the problems on her own.

Objective: SWBAT write a function defined by a quadratic expression in a different but equivalent form to reveal and explain different properties of the function.

Big Idea: Students rewrite functions and get to work with both forms to better understand their properties.
