Quadratic Equations Encrypted Wall: Quadratic equations can be solved using so many methods. This self-checking quadratic equations practice works well with factoring, the quadratic formula, or graphing. A variation designed for specific focus on the Zero Product Property is also included. The leading coefficient is 1 (a=1) for all quadratic equations.
Students just might enjoy solving 9 quadratic equations in this Encrypted Wall Activity
. Play a little music as students move around the room to solve quadratic equation problems posted on the wall. Problems can be solved in any order (so problem sheets could easily be passed from desk to desk instead if that’s more your style). Each problem has an associated letter that students record next to the integer solutions on a specially set-up answer sheet. (Don’t worry; there are easy instructions!)
So where’s the magic? Correct solutions recorded on the student answer sheet spell out an message that finishes the statement “I’m dreaming of…” Use the Encrypted version to make sure students aren’t just unscrambling letters (an easy introduction to cryptology). Once finished with the encrypted version, students decode to check the accuracy of their work before ever submitting for a grade.
