This powerpoint was created to review Chapter 5 of the Prentice Hall Algebra 2 textbook. It has 20 problems that review solving quadratic equations--some that can be factored, some where completing the square or the quadratic formula are needed. It also includes properties of parabolas and complex numbers.
The presentation has sound effects and two videos. The slides can be edited to be customized for your specific classroom.
Since I like my students to work out the problems first, the question will appear on each slide, then after a predetermined time, a "time's up" sound can be heard. One click and all four answers will appear. One more click will cause a bunch of bananas to appear next to the correct answer.
My students love these kinds of reviews, which is why I have one for every chapter. This particular one is one of their favorites because they love the minions. (So do I!)
Note: Math Type was used for some of the slides.
Common Core Standards:
A-REI 4. Solve quadratic equations in one variable.
a. Use the method of completing the square to transform any quadratic equation in x into an equation of the form (x – p)2 = q that has the same solutions. Derive the quadratic formula from this form.
b. Solve quadratic equations by inspection (e.g., for x2 = 49), taking square roots, completing the square, the quadratic formula and factoring, as appropriate to the initial form of the equation. Recognize when the quadratic formula gives complex solutions and write them as a ± bi for real numbers a and b.
