Happy Valentines Day! My students LOVED this activity that I found online last Friday. (The credit is on the first page of the activity!) There are four pages total. Print each page in a different color. Each page has either 12 equations in vertex form, 12 graphs, 12 axis of symmetry, or 12 vertexes. The goal is to match the aos, vertex, and graph to each equation. It is a great and FUN activity that students can work on together instead of writing the problems down. The different color paper helps students realize what information is missing. It is a quick 68 minute activity. This includes explanation and cleanup. I time each class to see who finish in the least amount of time. I used this is a warmup but it would also be a great summary tool at the end of class. Hope your students LOVE this as much as mine did!

I added in another card that had an equivalent form of the equation to give my students practice with completing the square. For most of them, I just expanded the vertex form. When the vertex was on the yaxis, I just algebraically manipulated the equation a bit.
