Explore changing coefficients
Lesson 2 of 9
Objective: SWBAT explore how changing the coefficients of a quadratic function changes the graph.
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 for an additional review.
For homework tonight I want students to think about the things that we have learned over the last couple of days. This assignment covers what we have learned so far about Quadratics:
