|Title||Equation Grapher: Sketching Linear and Parabolic Graphs (Inquiry Based)|
|Description||This is a set of two inquiry based activities to help students with sketching graphs. Learning Goals for the first lesson: Students will be able to: Sketch how the graph of a line changes as b and c vary (y=bx + c) Predict how a line graph will look given an equation in other forms. Learning Goals for the second lesson: Students will be able to: Sketch how a parabola changes as a, b, and c vary (y=ax2 + bx + c). Predict how a parabolic graph will look given equations in other forms.|
