Graphs and equations of 7 quadratic functions are given here.
Match them and put them into 7 sets. Write down the coordinates of the intercepts with the axes.
Make a poster showing the graph of each function with the matching equations.
In all these examples the coefficient of the quadratic term is +1 or -1. Choose your own quadratic function where this coefficient is not equal to +1 or -1 and complete your poster your own 8th set with its graph, equations and properties.
