. Cut out squares prior to class. 2 copies per table of page 3 of this document Glue sticks - 1 per table Directions: Each table will receive slips of paper, representing the different steps involved with solving a quadratic equation by factoring. The students' task is to put the slips of paper in the correct order and show the work that connects each step in solving the problem. Preferably, students will work in pairs, with two pairs at each table. Each pair will work on a different problem from page 2. Example of finished product shown on page 4 of this document.

Problem: Find roots of 2x2 + 28 = 18x algebraically. Check your answer graphically.

Problem: Find roots of -x2 + 3x = -18 algebraically. Check your answer graphically.

2x2 ± 18x + 28 = 0

-x2 + 3x + 18 = 0

2(x2 ± 9x + 14) = 0

-1(x2 ± 3x ± 18)

2(x ± 7)(x ± 2) = 0

-1(x ± 6)(x + 3) = 0

Roots: x = ____ and x = ____

Roots: x = ____ and x = ____

Rough Sketch

x = _____ x = _____ x = _____

Rough Sketch

x = _____

Directions: 1. Paste the problem card in the rectangle on the top of the page. 2. Determine the correct sequence (the correct order) for the remaining cards for solving the problem. 3. Paste the cards to the paper in the correct order. 3. Show work in pencil that connects each of the cards in sequence.

Paste the problem card here. Paste the remaining cards in sequence (in order) below.
