Exercise

I assigned problems from and AlgebraII book which was suggested by mentor teacher Mr. Duran.

Technical Notes

I used an overhead projector and provide my own notes in transparancies.

Requirements

-Students should know how to factor trinomials such as x^2+3x+2, x^2+10x+25, or x^2+12x+7. -Students should be familirize with the different techniques of factoring such the trial and error,diamond method, and factor by grouping. -Students should know how to solve quadratic equations in the form of x^2-7x+12=0 or even 3x^-2x-5=0 by using any method. -Students should know how to use the famous quadratic formula.

Learning Objectives

*Students will learn the method of completing the square of quadratic equations of the form ax^2+bx+c=0. *Students will learn how to recognize perfect sqare trinimials e.g. x^2+12x+36. *Students will learn how solve quadratic equations with the coefficient of one in front of the square term. *Students will learn how solve quadratic equations with the coefficient of other than one in front of the square term e.g. 2x^-13x+11
