Students and Teacher discuss the notion of setting up activity and collecting data:

- How might we

Students collaborate for 5 to 10 minutes and we return to group discussion:

- Firm decision is made on

Students are chosen to:

- Each student

Students plot the data points on provided graph paper or LAB REPORT TEMPLATE:

- Each output point must be ACCURATELY graphed
- Draw a Best Fit line through the points
- Inspect lines...What do you notice? What type of functions MIGHT these lines represent?

Students explore mathematical implications of the shape:

- Consider the shape of the

Students consider *(FIX AND FINISH THIS SECTION)*:

~ Which variable (or cluster) in your equations might you predict to correlate to the*"a"* term?

~ Which variable (or cluster) in your equations might you predict to correlate to the*"b"* term?

~ Which variable (or cluster) in your equations might you predict to correlate to the**"c"** term?

- Begin with the
**Master Equation**for a function we learned in the FOUR QUESTIONS exercises. - How might we expand the (x - h) binomial and rewrite the equation?
- How might we determine which are like terms based upon our knowing input the variable?
- Organize your new expression into P
**olynomial Form**. y(x) =**. . .** - Given
consider the following questions:**y(x) = ax^2 + bx +****c**

~ Which variable (or cluster) in your equations might you predict to correlate to the

~ Which variable (or cluster) in your equations might you predict to correlate to the

~ Which variable (or cluster) in your equations might you predict to correlate to the

- Now use this insight to convert all of your vertex form equations into polynomial form equations.
- Write the polynomial form equation under the graph of each curve...right below your vertex forms.
