This is a one-sided notes page intended for the beginner over completing the square.
The notes begin by explaining the purpose of the completing the square technique. Then a schematic shows the equation of a quadratic from standard form to vertex form.
Next, a worked out example is shown including steps. The second example includes the steps and has the student fill in parts of the process. Finally, the third example repeats the same steps, but has the student do all of the work.
The three examples also include identifying the vertex once the completing the square process is completed. All examples have "a" as 1 and "b" as an even number. Key included.
