The Quadratic Equations Scavenger Hunt was created by Pupsaroni Puzzles for use during the Quadratics Unit in an Algebra 1 classroom. This puzzle focuses on the different types of answers students may have that involve the variable x. There are only 11 pages to this scavenger hunt, but students will quickly be able to determine whether they know how to use x properly or not.
The cards all have an “answer” at the top, and another problem at the bottom to continue the scavenger hunt. Students can start at any card they choose. They write down their first answer, and work the problem below which leads them to the next card. Students continue working until they have gone through all the cards and come back to the answer they started with on the scavenger hunt. If there are 9 cards, students should have 9 different answers. If they come back to an answer before going through them all, the students have made a mistake and need to start over and retrace their steps checking their answers for accuracy. An answer key is provided for either the teacher or students to check their work. Answers are in order going down the column and going on to the next.
Printing the cards one per page makes the pages very easy to see, or printing two to a page makes the cards slightly smaller, but still very readable. Teachers just need to tape the cards up on the walls in some random order. Students can then work the cards as they have time and opportunity.
