I teach math....and some of my blog posts will be about that. And some may just be my meanderings on my life. :)

Intro to Quadratics - frayer style
For me, my entire notebook is becoming all about the Frayer model. I absolutely love it! I find it is the best way to explain what things are because you can compare them to what they aren't. I might have a slight addiction to them but that is just because they are just so darned easy to use!
So using one to explain Quadratic equations was easy for me to do. What a great way to show examples of equations and graphs, and non-examples. And it even helped start the students thinking about the similarities of the quadratic equation and the absolute value function! The minute I drew it as a non-example, they started asking questions. Don't you love when that happens? :)
