Seven stations include practice or review solving quadratic equations by inverse operations, factoring and the quadratic formula. Includes proportions, area of rectangles and word problems using a vertical motion model.
Students work in groups of three, labeling themselves Student A, Student B and Student C. Each student works their own problem at a station in their own notebook. Students then add their three answers together for the “Sum”. They check the back of the station/page to see if the “Sum” of their answers is correct before moving to the next station. Students may rotate through the stations in any order.
CCSS: Write expressions in equivalent forms to solve problems.
HSA.SSE.B.3a Factor a quadratic expression to reveal the zeros of the function it defines.
CCSS: Solve equations and inequalities in one variable.
HSA.REI.B.4 Solve quadratic equations in one variable.
HSA.REI.B.4a Use the method of completing the square to transform any quadratic equation in x into an equation of the form (x - p)2 = q that has the same solutions. Derive the quadratic formula from this form.
CCSS: Analyze functions using different representations.
HSF.IF.C.8a Use the process of factoring and completing the square in a quadratic function to show zeros, extreme values, and symmetry of the graph, and interpret these in terms of a context.
Print each page on cardstock or paper. Write only the numerical “Sum” of the three answers on the back of the corresponding page for students to check. Attach the pages to the walls around the room as stations for the students to visit.
Included in the package:
• Seven “Sum It Up” pages/stations, each with three problems, to put on walls around the classroom
• “Sum” answers to write on the back of each page/station for students to use
• Detailed answer key for the teacher
This activity works well in the middle of a lesson when students are actively learning a new skill and can also be used as a review.
The instructions are clearly marked on the students’ page and the answer key is included.
