## Formative Assessment

Complex Solutions?:

Students are asked to explain how to recognize when the quadratic formula results in complex solutions.

Type: Formative Assessment

## Lesson Plans

Solving Quadratics - Exploring Different Methods:

Students will explore how different methods find the solutions (roots) to quadratic equations including, factoring, graphing, and the quadratic formula.

Type: Lesson Plan

In this lesson students will solve radical equations, showing how extraneous solutions may arise. Students will solve radical equations that model real-world relationships.

Type: Lesson Plan

Students will sort various quadratic equations by the method they would use for solving (ie. factoring, quadratic formula). Then as a class they justify their placements and eventually discover that there are many ways to solve and that some make sense in different situations, however there is no real "correct" method for each equation type.
