A fun way for students to practice solving Quadratic equations
At the bottom of each problem in the scavenger hunt, I included a Mathematician's name and a number (This was helpful in case a student made a mistake, I was able to see which problem the mistake occurred). It was a great conversation opener and I even ended up offering Extra Credit for students who wanted to research them!
The problems used, post-up problems & the Key is included.
Students should be given one of the problems to begin with. It's best to not have all students start with the same problem. After they solve their problem, the must walk around the room to find their answer and flip up the cover to reveal their next problem to complete. They will continue until they have completed all 8.
The 8 problems 1 problem to solve using the greatest common factor, 1 problem to solve by square root (or difference of squares), 4 problems where a=1, and 2 problems where a>1. 7/8 of the problems need to be solved for zero first.
Please leave a comment once you've tried it and tell me how it goes!
And thank you in advance!!
