Product Description
This activity practices solving quadratic equations. The half of the equations are in standard form and set to zero and the other half have one term on the right side of the equation. There are also included incomplete quadratic equations. Solutions are only rational numbers.

Activity Directions: Partners will each have their own set of 8 quadratic equations. They solve the first four of them by factoring and the rest – by the most appropriate method they choose. Then they look for the numbers they have found on the “balloons board” - a set of balloons given with numbers and words on them. If students find their answers written on some of the balloons, they must “burst”(strike-through) it. In such a way the word written on this balloon is eliminated too. Partners continue solving still that way and at last they will have some balloons “survived” inseparably with the words written on them. They arrange all these words to make a proverb.
I have designed THREE DIFFERENT VARIANTS of “balloon boards” so the groups playing different versions to find out other proverbs.(The problems are the same.)

I hope your students enjoy “eliminating balloons” and searching for wisdom sayings.
