Objective: Using the Square Root Property to solve quadratic equations.
This activity is designed to help students with solving quadratic equations using the square root property. This is a beginning to level 1 activity, which means all the square roots are perfect squares. No imaginary solutions.
This activity also gets students up and about. Place the 10 cards on the wall around your room. Students pick any card to begin with. They should work the problem on the page, then students look around the room for a graph that matches theirs. They should continue working until they return to the card they started with.
Included are 2 versions of this activity.
• One with 10 cards for use as a walk-around activity (and an absent student size)
• A shorter version with only 5 cards great for table work, bell work or use as a review.
To help with grading, I have included 2 student answer sheets: One that includes room to show work, and another with just boxes.
Hints and suggestions:
When making copies of the shorter version, I use different colored paper. This allows for easier identification when students misplace a piece.
* Mid-Lesson or End of Lesson Check for understanding
* Math Station for students that have finished work early
* Test Review
* Homework Alternative
* Bell work
