Product Description
This activity can be used in class as an independent practice or as a homework assignment. It aims to improve students concentration skills and applying criteria to select.

Students will practice exploring a group quadratic equations in standard form. The ACCENT is put on determining which of the equations have two positive roots. Students will need to use Descartes’rule of signs or the rule of signs of quadratic equations to manage this task. Students will solve only the problems which have two rational positive roots. They should be noted that if the discriminant is a perfect square, the quadratic equation has two rational roots.

There are included 26 problems total labeled with the small alphabetic letters.
An enjoyable part of this activity is the WORD SEARCH task. Students search to find out which words among some words given are composed only of the letters of the equations having two positive roots.

NOTE: This activity can be split into two parts.

All answer keys are included.
