✐ This product is a NO PREP - SELF CHECKING
activity that engage students in "DISCRIMINANT in Real World Applications"
. Students will work with 12 Real Life Scenarios
where students have to analyze a given situation and use the discriminant to determine whether it is possible to reach a certain outcome or not.
This EMOJI requires students to have a mastery of:
☑ Setting a Quadratic Equation in Standard Form ax
² + bx
☑ Identify: a
, and c
☑ Evaluate the Discriminant: b
² − 4 ac
☑ Understanding the relationship between the value of the discriminant (positive vs. negative) and the possibility of having vs. not having a solution.
Each of the questions will be answered with either "YES"
. Please take a look at the 4th icon above for a step-by-step answer key to questions 5 & 7 where students are asked to determine whether a certain value (profit & height) is reached using the quadratic model.
A detailed Step-By-Step Solution to each of the 12 questions is provided with this product
The purpose behind this activity is to show the importance of the value of the discriminant in Real Life Applications.
Students would need to solve the mystery emoji by following the color key.
Please, take a look at the PREVIEW
before purchasing to make sure that this creative activity meets your expectations. After seeing the preview, If you would like to modify it in any way, please don't hesitate to contact me via Q and A
. I will update and include a second version in this product JUST FOR YOU ☻
My students are fascinated with an additional coloring option that I have included where they could pick their own colors. They have become very very creative. I am including this option in this emoji and I truly hope that your kids will love it as much as mine have.

My students truly were ENGAGED
answering the questions and had a BLAST COLORING
and finding the mystery picture much better than the textbook problems.✶ ✶ ✶
