You will be asked to use 3 methods to solve a quadratic equation. 1. By Graphing (Must find several points, including vertex, mathematically. Find the exact solutions. Show all math. Plot the graph.) 2. Quadratic Formula (formula will be provided) 2 4 = 2 3. By Factoring Sample Rubric:
Advanced 50 points Graph: Finds vertex mathematically Finds zeros mathematically Correctly drawn Quadratic Formula: Plugs in correct numbers Solves correctly Factoring: Factors correctly Solves correctly Proficient 43 points 2 full credit out of 3 Basic 38 points 1 full credit and 1 partial Or 2 partial 3 partial Below Basic 33 points 1 full credit Or

Practice Problems: Solve the following by graphing, quadratic formula, & factoring. See rubric above. Note: You should get the same solutions with every method! (Use separate paper for this portion of the study guide. A coordinate plane will be provided on the test.) 1. 0 = 2 + 3 10 2. 0 = 2 + 2 + 1 3. 0 = 2 3 4

Identify the zeros and vertex. 4. 5. 6.

9. The height in feet of an acrobat who jumps from a trampoline 10 feet in the air to a large mat on the ground can be modeled by the function f(x) 8x2 16x 10, where x is the time in seconds after the acrobat jumps. Graph this function. maximum height: _______________________________ time to reach maximum height: __________________ time in the air: __________________________________ Domain: ____________________ Range: ___________________
