1 Investigation 1

1.1 I can recognize a quadratic relationship when viewed in a graph.

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:

1.3.1 express the length of each side of the rectangle in terms of x,

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:

2.1.1 expanded form [example: A = x2 – 4]

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 When looking at a parabola, I can identify the following features:

2.6.1 line of symmetry,

2.6.2 maximum or minimum point,

2.6.3 the y-intercept, and

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.

2.9 I can recognize a quadratic relationship when viewed in an equation.

2.10 I can graph a quadratic equation.
