ideas and resources for mathematics teachers of 10 to 16 year olds
This is an A3 poster that I made for my students to assist them with seeing the bigger picture when working with Quadratic Functions. They used it in class to guide them and also added their own notes and sketches. Please feel free to download the PDF version (Quadratic Functions A3) in order to recreate or use it in your own classroom. I will try to upload a better quality version when I have a chance!
