Activities for Students: Curve Stitching: Linking Linear and Quadratic Functions
January 2005, Volume 98, Issue 5, Page 348
An activity about curve stitching focused on teaching parabolic functions. The author uses the art of curve stitching to demonstrate a connection between linear and quadratic equations. Activities are hands-on, open-ended activities that encourage problem solving, reasoning, communication, and mathematical connections. Activities is a regular feature of Mathematics Teacher and highlights activities that develop conceptual understanding of mathematics topics. An activity using curve-stitching helps prospective teachers investigate linear and quadratic functions.
