Plotting Quadratic Functions

              Plotting Quadratic Functions

              Students learn about plotting quadratic functions by completing a table of results and choosing a suitable scale for the axes.

              As learning progresses the plots are used to solve quadratic equations graphically.

              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to plot a quadratic in the form y = x2
              • Most students should be able to plot a quadratic in the form y = ax2
              • Some students should be able to plot and solve quadratic equations graphically.
