Algebra 2 Honors Unit 3: Quadratic Equations Learning Resources

Goals of the Unit: Fluently choose and use all forms of a quadratic function or equation to describe
the function or solve the equation.

Learning Objectives

(standard, vertex, and intercept)

Be able to

Interpret parts of a quadratic

expression (e.g., terms, coefficients) in
relation to the context.
Graph by hand a quadratic function in
any form and identify key points of the
Solve quadratic equations by graphing
y = f(x) and y = g(x) and finding the
intersection of the graphs.
Solve quadratic equations algebraically
by taking square roots, factoring,
completing the square, and using the
quadratic formula.
Choose the most efficient method of
solving a quadratic equation.
Convert a quadratic function/equation
into any of the three forms of a function
in order to identify key features of a
graph and to solve the equation.
Determine the nature and number of
zeros of a quadratic equation.
Create a quadratic function/equation
from given information, including key
points of a graph and any three points
on the graph.
Model a situation using a quadratic
