Quadratic Equations: Gone Fishin' Game (with Complex Solutions)
This is a super fun PowerPoint game for students to practice the different methods for solving quadratic equations: factoring, square roots, completing the square, and the quadratic formula. This game includes complex solutions.
Students can either aim for the fish with a Koosh Ball (if playing with a Smart Board), or come up to the computer to select a fish. The fish really do swim around the screen, so it's a lot of fun and the kids love it. Problems are organized as follows:
Red Fish: Factoring
Yellow Fish: Square Roots
Green Fish: Completing the Square
Blue Fish: Quadratic Formula
There are 44 total problems, with 11 of each kind. Organizing by color really helps students sort and practice each method. Once a problem is selected, students write it down on their recording sheet. Once you click "Answer", they can check their answer.
