Product Description
This discovery activity has students find the discriminant of various quadratics and then determine what kind of roots would be attained if you were to solve using the entire quadratic formula. After filling out a step by step chart, students answer questions that lead them to find the four possibilities of the discriminant (positive perfect square, zero, negative, or positive and not a perfect square). This activity works well when students work alone or with a partner. I have noticed that they remember the 4 cases much better when using this activity rather than me just telling them the cases!
