Solving Quadratics by Factoring:
--> ax^2 + bx + c = 0 a = 1
--> ax^2 + bx + c = 0 a =/ 1
--> Special Trinomials (Difference of Two Squares AND Perfect Square Trinomials)
--> Combination of the Above
Then I went to the internet in search of a foldable that would allow for 5 topics and came across one like mine in the picture. Perfect!
I also created a PowerPoint to go along with the foldable. It's nothing fabulous, it's just a slide show of the example I will be doing in class, but you are welcome to it.
I was curious how the students would react to something like this. I find that students in this class are typically serious and not interested in stuff like this. I found that the students liked it. Not only could I tell by their reaction, but I came right out and asked them.
