SWBAT (Student will be able to) identify 4 out of 5 times a parabola’s axis of symmetry when graphing quadratics.
Techer will use Geogebra to graph a couple of quadratics, showing the parabola’s axis of symmetry both times.
Teacher will graph a couple of quadratics on whiteboard, showing axis of symmetry.
Teacher and students will go through this together–teacher will cold call on students to both help graph quadratic and show axis of symmetry.
Students will work several exercises on their own while the teacher circulates checking for understanding.
At the end of the task/lesson, students will complete an “exit slip” which will be used to assess mastery of the lesson.
