InCA Assignment for 11/19

We continued our re-introduction to Parabolas and Quadratic Equations today by playing a game similar to the classic game Guess Who, where you had to ask a series of questions to guess which of 25 parabolas your randomly matched partner selected. This taught us the value of having clearly defined vocabulary to describe the key features of such shapes, as several questions that you asked each other led to confusion!

For tonight’s homework, please complete the Parabola Polygraph Debrief reflection. You will also need to bring in your Chromebook once more tomorrow for the third and final introductory activity to this unit.

InCA Assignment for 11/18

Today in class, we did a (hopefully fun!) activity introducing our next unit on Parabolas and Quadratic Equations. Your homework tonight is to reflect on two questions:

  1. Describe one thing that you learned from the Will It Hit the Hoop Desmos activity from class.
  2. What else do you think you could use a parabola to model the shape/path of?

Write your reflection on a piece of paper or record them in Socrative (room code G102KIRK)

Bring your Chromebook in tomorrow again for Part 2 of this introduction!
