Lesson 3-1: Quadratic Equations (Review)


Sorry, the GeoGebra Applet could not be started. Please make sure that Java 1.4.2 (or later) is installed and active in your browser (Click here to install Java now)

Objective:

The student will be able to solve quadratic equations by factoring and using the quadratic formula.

  1. To the left is the graph of a quadratic equation in graphing form. You may change the values for a, h & k.
  2. Look at the graph. Graphs show us the y-values for each x-value. When we are asked, "When does the quadratic equation equal zero?", we are asked to name the x-values where the y-values are zero.
  3. On a coordinate plane, where do the y-values equal zero?
  4. In this section you will be solving quadratic equations. How many times might a quadratic equation equal zero? Can you imagine situations when the equation cannot equal zero?
