Mathematical goals
This lesson unit is intended to help you assess how well students are able to understand what the different algebraic forms of a quadratic function reveal about the properties of its graphical representation. In particular, the lesson will help you identify and help students who have the following difficulties:
Understanding how the factored form of the function can identify a graph's roots.Understanding how the completed square form of the function can identify a graph's maximum or minimum point.Understanding how the standard form of the function can identify a graph's intercept.

Before the lesson, students work individually on an assessment task that is designed to reveal their current understandings and difficulties. You then review their work and create questions for students to answer in order to improve their solutions.After a whole-class interactive introduction, students work in pairs on a collaborative discussion task in which they match quadratic graphs to their algebraic representation. As they do this, they begin to link different algebraic forms of a quadratic function to particular properties of its graph.At the end of the lesson there is a whole-class discussion.In a follow-up lesson students attempt to improve their original response to the assessment task.
Materials required
Each individual student will need two copies of the Quadratic Functions assessment task and a mini-whiteboard, pen, and eraser.Each pair of students will need Domino Cards 1 and Domino Cards 2, cut into ten Ã¢â‚¬Ëœdominoes'.
Time needed
15 minutes before the lesson, a 95-minute lesson (or two shorter lessons), and 10 minutes in a follow-up lesson. Timings are approximate and will depend on the needs of the class.

This comprehensive lesson plan taps on students' conceptual understanding of the area model, order of operations, and whole-number exponents to explore and solve a card-matching task. Students will need to match a set of compound rectangles to numerical expression that will give the area for the figure. Students will need to utilize the distributive and commutative properties to solve the task. Aside from the expressions and equations standard, this resource can be used as a geometry/measurement task as well. This lesson plan contemplates individual and group activities producing student engagement.

Students explore volume by trying to pack a moving truck with boxes of specified sizes.
The lesson is structured in the following way:
* Before the lesson, students attempt the Packing It In task individually. You review their responses and formulate questions that will help them improve their work.
* At the start of the lesson, students read your comments and consider ways to improve their work.
* In pairs or threes, students work together to develop a better solution, producing a poster to show their conclusions and their reasoning.
* Then, in the same small groups, students look at some sample student work showing different approaches to the problem. They evaluate the strategies used and seek to improve the arguments given.
* In a whole-class discussion, students compare different solution methods.
* Finally, students reflect individually on their learning.
