** This activity is available as a "GOOGLE INTERACTIVE" product HERE**
✐ This product is a NO PREP - SELF CHECKING
activity that engage students in"Predicting type of Solutions of Quadratic Equations"
. Students will work with 12 Questions
where students have to determine whether the given quadratic equation has real solution(s) 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.
☑ Determining ALGEBRAICALLY
whether the given Quadratic Equation has REAL Solution(s) or not
Each of the questions will be answered with either "NO REAL SOLUTIONS"
or "HAS REAL SOLUTIONS"
. Please take a look at the icons above for an idea about the nature of the questions and the expected answers.
In the directions students are asked to approach these questions ALGEBRAICALLY
. Students were not told directly to use the discriminant. The students would need to realize that the value of the Discriminant is enough to answer this type of questions.
You could ask students to use DESMOS
to check their answers or even come up with the answer (if you wish).
A detailed Step-By-Step Solution to each of the 12 questions is provided with this product
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.
