** This activity is available as a "GOOGLE INTERACTIVE" product COMING SOON**

✐ This product is a NO PREP - SELF CHECKING activity that engage students in working with the "Discriminant and The Quadratic Formula". Students will work with 12 Questions.

This EMOJI requires students to have a mastery of followings:

☑ Solve Quadratic Equation Algebraically with 1 Rational Root

☑ Solve Quadratic Equation Algebraically with 2 Rational Roots

☑ Solve Quadratic Equation Algebraically with 2 Irrational Roots (Must simplify radicals in some cases and reduce common factor)

☑ Solve Quadratic Equation Algebraically with 2 Complex Roots (Must simplify "i") (Answers are in Radical Form)

☑ Use the Discriminant to determine if a given quadratic equation has 1 rational root, 2 rational roots, 2 irrational roots, and 2 complex roots

☑ Discriminant Real World Applications: use the discriminant to determine whether it is possible to reach a specific value or not.

☑ Quadratic Formula Applications: use the quadratic formula to answer questions about an application such as time of reaching the ground or even time of reaching a specific height. (Answers are in Decimal Form)

Students should feel comfortable with:

☑ Working with the quadratic formula

☑ Calculating the discriminant

☑ Simplifying radicals

☑ Number and type of roots based on the value of the discriminant

Please note:

☑ Solutions are all in radical form when solving by the quadratic formula

☑ Solutions of applications are in decimal forms (rounded to 2 decimal places)

☑ This is a great review of aspects of the quadratic formula and the discriminant. My Honors Algebra II students as well as My Algebra IIB students found it very helpful. I assigned this EMOJI at home after my students completed this Scavenger Hunt in groups in class before we took a test.

A suggested step-by-step answer key is included.

Students may answer the applications of this emoji:

☑ Algebraically - Using the quadratic formula

☑ Graphically - Using Graphing Calculator

☑ Graphically - Using Desmos

This solutions of this activity are:

☑ Rounded to 2 decimal places

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.✶ ✶ ✶

This RELAXING EMOJI could be used in: math centers, group work, a way to check for understanding, a review, recap of the lesson, pair-share, cooperative learning, exit ticket, entrance ticket, homework, individual practice, when you have time left at the end of a period, beginning of the period (as a warm up or bell work), before a quiz on the topic, substitute planning, and more.
