Students will practice using the discriminant to determine the number of real solutions for a quadratic equations.
There are 20 quadratic equations which become progressively more challenging:
Problems 1-6: the right side of the equation is equal to zero
Problems 7-11: the right side of the equation is equal to a number
Problems 12-20: equations may or may not require combining like terms
This resource works well as independent practice, homework, extra credit or even as an assignment to leave for the substitute (includes answer key!)
Top 3 Reasons to Use Coloring Activities in the Classroom:
Coloring activities minimize off-task student behavior
(making it more likely for students to complete the assignment in the allotted time frame) because they want to see what the end result will look like.
Coloring activities make self-checking
simple for students: "I got blue for #5...how'd you get red?"
Coloring activities provide the teacher with a way to quickly assess student understanding
while floating around the room: "Marie's coloring sheet looks off...I better go over to her desk and check on how she's doing."
Worried about kids just coloring?...I was too. I require my students to have work shown for each problem as I would with any assignment: "Turning in a beautiful piece of art without the math to back it up doesn't count as doing your assignment, kiddos!"
ALGEBRA ACCENTS Coloring Activities
are also great for those students that always seem to finish the regular assignment early. It's more practice problems disguised as a fun and easy coloring sheet!
