Students will practice the following skills with this round table activity: (1) identifying the axis of symmetry and vertex of a quadratic equation written in standard form, (2) converting a quadratic equation from standard form to vertex form, (3) identifying transformations from the parent function, and (4) completing a table of values and graphing a quadratic function.

Students are placed into groups of four and each person is given a round table paper. There are eight versions of the activity so this activity can be used twice! The directions for each person:

- Person #1 identifies the axis of symmetry and vertex given the standard form of a quadratic function.
- Person #2 will first check and initial that the work done by Person #1 is correct. Then Person #2 converts the standard form equation to vertex form.
- Person #3 will first check and initial that the work done by Person #2 is correct. Then Person #3 will describe the transformations from the parent function.
- Person #4 will first check and initial that the work done by Person #3 is correct. Then Person #4 will complete a table of values and graph the parabola.

Then it goes back to Person #1 and they verify that Person #4 graphed the function correctly.
