This is a collaborative activity to practice solving complete quadratic equations in standard form by all methods. Students work through sections. In each section, each partner has one equation to solve by a specified method. Equations of the partners in each section are DEPENDENT. The problems are 28 WELL THOUGHT OUT that all have integer coefficients and solutions.
Activity Directions: In Section One, Partner A starts solving the equation given and finding its roots while Partner B waits to receive the values of these roots from Partner A. Once the solution set is found Partner A “provides” Partner B with its numbers . Then Partner B places the numbers into the empty squares of his own equation given with two missing coefficients and solves the equation. There is an important instruction - the number which has its absolute value less to be put in place of the first missing coefficient. In Section Two partners repeat the same actions, however this time Partner B starts first. In Section Three, Partner A starts solving first again and it goes still the same way.
Recording sheets are included for students to show work .
All answer keys are included as well.
NOTE: The pages are designed in a way that each partner can solve ten equations or even only six.
