This worksheet is designed to give students additional practice on quadratics and factoring: graphing quadratics, solving quadratics by graphing, critiquing common errors in applying the quadratic formula, and solving equations by factoring. It also includes spiral review topics as well.
I start out class with a 15-minute "mini-lesson," giving my students some basic examples of what today's lesson will be about. Once the mini-lesson is over, I have them get to work within their groups on this worksheet.
I use this activity within cooperative groups, and I circulate to make sure they are getting the purpose of the questions.
This worksheet is intended to be written on directly.
