I will introduce the concept of quadratic equations and show them how they are connected to the linear equations they have already been working with.
Students will respond to questions and show an understanding of linear equations and how they relate and are different from quadratic equations.
I will use a lesson plan that aligns with the common core standard for solving quadratic equations.
3 Guided Practice
Introduce DragonBox EDU to students.
Students will use this tool to get used to the equations. It is like a game where students must balance equations on two sides of the equality sign.
4 Independent Practice
Let students know to practice at home using Khan Academy
This tool is great for online practice at home amongst students. Students will do their homework regarding quadratic equations on here.
Have students complete a "3-2-1 Summary" as described on Mathlicisious.
Students will state three things they learned, two things they found most interesting, and one thing they still have a question on and bring the answers to class the next day.
