The student will be able to create a concept map in Popplet app and discuss the relationships and connections of quadratic equations (factoring and FOILing) using the Show Me app.

Tutorial

You objective is to create a a poplet that explains how the vocabulary words work together to convert the various forms of quadratic equations that we know.

You will then save your poplet as a picture and talk over the concept map using show me.

Last you will upload your show me to the class login.

Apps You Will Use:

For a little help on show me, watch the video at the bottom.

A concept map is a visual way of representing ideas using words and pictures to show the ideas and colors, boxes, and arrows to show their relationship.

Below is a concept map of the water cycle you can view as an example.

**FACTORED FORM**: Any quadratic equation in the form y = (x - a)(x - b)

**LINE OF SYMMETRY**: The vertical line through the vertex, splits parabola into two mirror-image pieces

**QUADRATIC EQUATION**: A polynomial with a highest term of x^{2}

**QUADRATIC FORMULA**: Formula solves for the roots of any standard form quadratic equation

**PARABOLA**: A graph of a quadratic equation

**ROOTS/ZEROS**: The point or points where a parabola intersects the x-axis.

**STANDARD FORM**: Any quadratic equation in the form: y = ax^{2} + bx + c

**VERTEX**: The point on the graph where the parabola changes direction from positive to negative or negative to positive
