This activity is a perfect way to challenge your advanced learners on topic quadratic equations. It contains more complex problems, much more engaging than the ordinary one. Students will practice solving quadratic equations with rational coefficients having only rational solutions. Each quadratic equation must be solved by a specified method. There are problems included, where students need to compute
• the sum and product of the roots of two equations
• the absolute value of the sum and difference of the roots of an equation
• the sum of the squares and cubes of the roots of a quadratic equation
Hints ( formulae) are provided to help students check their ”pretty” answers.
The product can be used as in class practice for group work ( there are 2 different versions), an independent practice, as enrichment and homework.
