Students will use tables of values to generate coordinates and subsequently plot the graphs of 4 quadratic functions when working through this worksheet.
The quadratic functions to be plotted are: y = x² + 5, y = x² - 10, y= 2x² + 3 and y = 3x² - x. For each function, a table of values is provided and laid out to encourage learners to work out each part of the function separately before combining. The first two tables also have a row dedicated to writing the values of x and y as coordinate pairs. Each time the values of x to be used are from -2 to 2.
Graphs are all plotted on separate axes, which are also pre-drawn for students.
