The following lesson covers "Solving Quadratic Equations by Graphing".
* Students begin by reviewing Standard Form for a Quadratic Equation
* Students learn where to locate the solutions to a Quadratic Equation on the Cartesian Plane.
* Students learn three inter-changeable ways to refer to the solutions to a Quadratic Equation.
* Students learn the steps necessary to find the solutions of a Quadratic Equation
* Students learn and explain in their own words what the graph of a Quadratic Equation with ONE solution looks like on the Cartesian Plane
* Students learn and explain in their own words what the graph of a Quadratic Equation with NO solutions looks like on the Cartesian Plane.
* Students solve a real life situation by graphing and then determine if their answer is reasonable or not reasonable.
* This lesson is aligned with CC Standards and "across the curriculum" expectations.
* I have included a follow-up assessment for student/instructor convenience in checking students' comprehension and understanding.
* I have also included GUIDED NOTES to encourage student active participation in the lesson presentation and for reference prior to tests/quizzes and exams.
* Students should find the lesson clearly outlined as well as academically stimulating, while instructors will find the lesson practical.
* Thank you, and please enjoy!
