We are finishing up our unit on Characteristics of Quadratics. Students are more comfortable with this unit ... they are beginning to see how the progression of learning since August fits together. A few still struggle with domain and range.
The next unit, though, will be all algebraic solving ... the nitty gritty of factoring, completing the square, and using the quadratic formula. How do you engage students in the bare naked solving???
I'm looking for a hook ... I've got notes, examples, and oh my, worksheets! BUT how do I revamp this unit?
