Effect of Coefficient of x^2 on Parabola Shape part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

This classroom activity presents College Algebra students with a ConcepTest, a Question of the Day, and a Write-pair-share activity concerning the effect of the coefficient of x^2 on the shape of a parabola where b and c are arbitrarily fixed values in f(x)=ax^2+bx+c.

Effect of Proportionality Constant on Exponential Graph (k>0) part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

This classroom activity presents College Algebra students with a ConcepTest and a Question of the Day activity concerning the effect of the proportionality constant, k, on the y-intercept and position of an exponential graph where k>0 and C is an arbitrarily fixed value in f(x)=Ce^(kx).

Using Mass Balance to Understand Atmospheric CFCs part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Data:Examples
