The graphs and some properties of seven quadratic functions are given here.
The equation of each function is given in three different forms.
Match the graph of each function with the matching equations and properties.
This activitiy is linked to Quadratic Matching 1 which you might like to try first.
In all these examples a = +1 or -1. Choose your own quadratic function where a is not equal to +1 or -1 and write the equation in different forms, sketch the graph and list the properties.
Make a poster of the 7 functions and the function you have chosen to show the graphs with their equations and properties.
