# Lesson Plan: Features of Quadratic Functions Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to identify the features of a quadratic function, such as its vertex, extrema, axis of symmetry, domain, and range.

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

• find the key features of a quadratic equation from its equation or graph, including its intercepts, vertex, axis of symmetry, domain, and range,
• understand that quadratics are symmetric in the vertical line through their vertex,
• understand that the sign of the leading coefficient tells us the type of extrema that the quadratic function will have,
• recall and apply the formula for the axis of symmetry using the coefficients of the quadratic.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

• sets,
• the domain and range.

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover
