The Parabola Game

The Parabola Game is very similar to The Line Game.  Click here to read about The Line Game.

However, for The Parabola Game the teacher will project quadratic equations in standard form and the students will match these 5 attributes to each one:

  • Graph
  • Discriminant
  • Vertex
  • Table of Values
  • Equation in Vertex Form

Here are the resources:

  1. Box is not letting me download the cards. When I click on the blue download button it doesn't do anything. Any ideas? Same problem happening with the Line Game cards too.

    1. You can click print, then print to PDF and save it as a pdf file.

    2. Yes, I don't know why you can't just download it right away. Thanks Brendan for the tip!

  2. This and your line game are awesome. I am definitely using them next year. My district math coach just told me about you on Twitter. You now have another happy follower =)

  3. I just used the parabola game in class today. The kids loved it. One typo. Equation 4 is different in the presentation than it is on the printout.

    1. Good catch. The equation in the presentation is the correct equation. I think I had to change it because the original equation had the same discriminant as another equation.
