Quadratic Graphs: What do you know?

Quadratic Graphs: What do you know?

Quadratics: What do you know about this quadratic? Students are given a quadratic equation and asked to work out: its factors where it crosses the axes what its graph would look like what it would be in completed square format where its minimum point is They are then given three other quadratics to work on, but are provided with different starting information - i.e., if they have the graph, can they work out the factors? Updated May 2018 Now with 2 additional bonus activities: Properties of Quadratic Graphs Worksheets Students have to identify the roots, turning point, y intercept and line of symmetry from a graph or function. Recognising Quadratic Graphs Activity Students have to match quadratic graphs to their functions by considering roots, y -intercepts and whether the co-efficient of x^2 is positive or negative.

Similar and Congruent Triangles Snap!

Similar and Congruent Triangles Snap!

Similar Triangles Snap: In this activity there are 14 triangles and students must match them into pairs that are similar. Once they have matched them into pairs of similar triangles, they must then use the fact they are similar to work out the missing sides and angles. Congruent Triangles Snap: As above, there are 14 triangles and students must match them into pairs that are definitely congruent. They must then work out the missing sides and angles. As an extension, pupils could also use the sine and cosine laws to work out the missing sides and angles in the triangles. Answers for this are included. Tags: Similarity, Similar Triangles, AAA, SAS, SSS, Congruent, Congruence, Congruent Triangles
