# Frogs, Fleas, & Painted Cubes Learning Targets

1 Investigation 1

## 1.2 I can recognize a quadratic relationship when viewed in a table.

1.3 If given a rectangle with a fixed perimeter and a side length x, I can:

## 1.3.2 express the area of the rectangle as an equation in terms of x, and

1.3.3 determine the side length that will result in the maximum area.

2 Investigation 2
2.1 I can represent quadratic equations in two forms:

## 2.1.2 factored form [example: A = (x+2)(x-2)]

2.2 If given a square with side length x, I can write an equation to represent a new rectangle
formed by changing one dimension of the square [example: add 2 meters to one side].

2.3 If given a square with side length x, I can write an equation to represent a new rectangle
formed by changing two dimensions of the square [example: add 2 meters to one side;
subtract 1 meter from the other side].

2.4 I can convert a quadratic expression from factored form [example: x(x+3)] to expanded form
[example: x2 + 3x] by drawing a picture.

2.5 I can convert a quadratic expression from expanded form [example: x2 + 3x] to factored form
[example: x(x+3)] by drawing a picture.

## 2.6.4 the x-intercepts (two, one, or none)

2.7 If given a quadratic equation in factored form, I can determine the x-intercepts.

2.8 If given a quadratic relationship, I can explain what information the x-intercepts provide.

## 2.10 I can graph a quadratic equation.
