Clue! Quadratic Functions - Vertex, Factoring, Quadratic Form. Word Problems, Graphing

A quadratic function take on the classic game of clue! Can you solve the clues to determine the suspect, accomplice, room and weapon? Students will work through 4 clues: Your students will use knowledge of finding a vertex, factoring, using the quadratic formula, solving word problems and graphing parabolas. Students will record their answers on their clue sheet to reveal the final solution. Students are given a cipher to turn their number answers into letters. Cut out both circles and spin the numbers to match the appropriate letter. Students are also provided a score sheet, just like the game, so they can mark off their final answer. Have them turn in their answers and work to see if they've found all the right information! Follow our Pinterest Boards!

One-Step Equations (Loop Cards)

One-Step Equations (Loop Cards)

This download contains four sets of cards. Students choose a set and sort them into order by answering the questions. Then they try to do it faster using a different set, which has a different sort order. Click --> https://tes.com/.../loop-cards for Loop Cards on other topics. -- The cards can either be used by individuals, pairs or small groups. My favourite use is for two students to have different versions of the cards and race each other. They then check their answers, shuffle, swap packs and race again (quickest overall time wins!) Solutions and instructions are included. Cut out card size is approx. 65 x 90 mm.

Write & Solve Systems of Linear Equations in Context Problem Pass Activity

Write & Solve Systems of Linear Equations in Context Problem Pass Activity

Eight rounds include practice or review writing and solving systems of linear equations word problems. The activity includes problems with mixtures, comparing two deals, finding the cost, age, geometry and more. Students work with a partner while seated at their desks. They should write in their own notebook or on the blank Answer Sheet (included). At the same time the first pair of students is working on Problem 1, the second pair works on Problem 2, the third pair works on Problem 3, etc. At the teacher’s signal, all students pass their problem in a specific direction. The students who started with Problem 2 should now pass it to the students who started with Problem 1, the students who started with Problem 3 pass it to the students who started with Problem 2, etc. The first pair of students starting with Problem 1 should deliver their finished problem to the last pair of students, or the teacher may prefer to deliver these each time. Students now flip over their new page to find the ANSWER to the problem they just finished. Students continue to work problems in order, pass problems and check their answers on the back of the next problem page until they have completed all problems included in the activity. This activity works well in the middle of a lesson while students are actively practicing a new skill or can be used as a review. The answer key is built into the activity so students check for accuracy themselves. Teacher Setup: Print single-sided copies and slide pages into plastic page protectors to keep problems and answers together. Put Problem 1 and ANSWER Problem 8 back-to-back in the same plastic page protector; put Problem 2 and ANSWER Problem 1 back-to-back in another plastic page protector, Problem 3 and ANSWER Problem 2 together, etc. Prepare 2 or more complete sets of the activity to have enough pages for each pair of students in the class. Keep complete sets in order. It is very important to hand out problems in numerical order so the page with the answer on the back follows its problem number. As you hand out problems in order, problem side up, tell each pair of students the direction they should pass their problem when finished. This direction may vary by row if you zig-zag or “snake” up and down the rows of desks. The first pair of students starting with Problem 1 should deliver their finished problems to the last pair of students, or you may prefer to deliver these each time. CCSS: Analyze and solve pairs of simultaneous linear equations: 8.EE.C.8, 8.EE.C.8a , 8.EE.C.8b, 8.EE.C.8c CCSS: Solve systems of equations: HSA.REI.C5, HSA.REI.C.6 CCSS: Create equations that describe numbers or relationships: HSA.CED.A.3 This purchase is for one teacher only.
