Students in Mrs. Strole's Honors Algebra classes have been studying the three forms of quadratic functions. They have been investigating the key features of the parabola and how each equation transforms for the parabola. On Tuesday, students had a chance to apply their knowledge in Mario Day. Students had to write quadratic functions to help Mario move through the various worlds. We saw how video games had quadratics hidden in them. Students walked away at the end of the day saying the following:


  • I understand these forms so much better today!
  • This was so much fun!
  • Mrs. Strole can we finish the game at home if we didn't save the princess?


What other games have quadratics hidden in them? Some Honors Algebra students will be tackling this question in their #seeingalgebra semester2 project.
