This maze is part of : Maze - BUNDLE Solving Quadratic Equations

This activity is a good review of understanding how to "Determine type of roots" of a quadratic equation. It is a good practice of the meaning and the important needs of the discriminant formula:

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ b^2 - 4ac. /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

Some of the quadratic equations are written in standard form while others are NOT. Some equations are missing the linear term while others are missing the constant term. Some quadratic functions have negative leading coefficient. Please keep in mind that this maze focuses only on the numeric portion of the discriminant. It only asks students to practice using the above formula.

The answer to the questions of maze are given in two different models:

Model 1 (maze 1) gives the answers using:

* 1 real root
* 2 real roots

* 2 complex roots

while Model 2 (maze 2) gives the answers using:
* 1 rational root
* 2 rational roots
* 2 irrational roots
* 2 complex roots

Both mazes have the same set of questions. There are 15 quadratic equation provided in this maze. From start to end, the student will be able to answer 12 questions out of the 15 provided to get to the end of the maze.

This maze could be used as: 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, and more.
