Product Description
Quadratic Equations Activity: First, Step Stop! is an in-class activity that is really helpful for students to practice determining which approach to use without having to complete the entire problem! It is great for sequential problems, such as solving equations. The best part about it is that it is very effective and super easy to implement!

Curricular Content:
Solving quadratic equations using factoring, the square roots method, completing the square, and the quadratic formula.

How this activity can be used in class:
The First Step, Stop! can be used in many ways, and below is a description of how I use it in class! I ask students to complete each question in pairs or in groups. I always need to emphasize that only the first step should be completed, not the entire question. After students have finished working, I post the answer key on the board and ask them which questions they would like me to go over!

Creative uses:
This activity could be used as a warm-up or exit ticket. There could be a prize awarded to students who score the highest! You could ask the students to work together, but only choose one of their papers to be submitted and graded. It could be graded formally or informally.
