Graphing Quadratic Equations: Using a Table of Values

Common Core Grade Level: 
Packet includes: 
16 practice problems (with coordinate planes) and an answer key.

This packet helps students understand how to graph quadratic equations using a table of values.  There are many ways to graph quadratic equations.  One of the most basic ways is to use a table of values.  Students choose values for x and plug them into the equation to find the y value and create coordinate pairs.  They can then plot those points on a coordinate plane.

Each page starts with easier problems that get more difficult as students work through the packet. After doing all 16 problems, students should be more comfortable doing these problems and have a clear understanding of how to solve them.

Sample Problem(s): 

Graph the function using a table of values. 


$y= x²+2x+1$  


$y= 2x²+2x+1$


Practice problems require knowledge of graphing on a coordinate plane.
