Transformations of Quadratic
Functions
Using interactives,
participants observe how changing symbolic expressions alters their
graphic representation, and vice versa. By working with families
of quadratic functions, they deepen their understanding of the role
of each symbolic form in gleaning information about a function.
Professional Development Goals

Represent, categorize and use families of quadratic functions in multiple formats

Understand how each of the three major symbolic forms — polynomial, root (product), and vertex — serve a different purpose and how each relates to graphic transformations

Exploit function notation as a useful tool to visualize the relationships among related quadratic functions
