Students are put in groups. The group must successfully complete task #1. The teacher will check the group answers. Once task #1 is correctly completed, the group will then be given task #2. This process continues until the group has successfully completed all the tasks. This activity can also be used as a differentiating activity since the tasks increase in difficulty. Start higher ability groups at the later tasks & start lower ability groups at the first task.
This task activity focused on the solving of quadratic equations through various methods.
