In this project students will graph quadratic functions based on the popular game, Angry Birds, by using equations and a Web-based graphing tool. Students will work in groups to apply the same principles to create their own game that uses quadratic functions. Students will exchange games with other groups, play the game and assess that game using a set student rating scale.

For a function that models a relationship between two quantities, interpret key features of graphs and tables in terms of the quantities, and sketch graphs showing key features given a verbal description of the relationship.?

Calculate and interpret the average rate of change of a function (presented symbolically or as a table) over a specified interval. Estimate the rate of change from a graph.?

Graph linear and quadratic functions and show intercepts, maxima, and minima.

Use the process of factoring and completing the square in a quadratic function to show zeros, extreme values, and symmetry of the graph, and interpret these in terms of a context.

Compare properties of two functions each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, or by verbal descriptions).
