Do The Quad Solve (WSHS Math Rap Song) - YouTube

(Parody of Do The John Wall by Troop 41) Westerville South High School, Westerville, Ohio Yeaaaaaahhhhh! Ha-ha-haaa! Westerville, what it is? What up South? ...
Todd Grevsmuhl's insight:

This is a great way to start a factorising unit, as it is fun and it provides a brief overview to the students of what will be studied.

 

After watching the video the following questions could be posed to the class:

 

1. When using the quadratic formula, what three variables can be found from the quadratic equation and substituted in?

 

2. How do we factorise a basic quadratic equation (e.g. x2 +4x+4)/or what steps are used to factorise a basic quadratic equation?

Graphing Equations and Inequalities - Graphing linear equations - First Glance | Maths | Scoop.it

To graph a linear equation, we can use the slope and y-intercept.


1. Locate the y-intercept on the graph and plot the point.

2. From this point, use the slope to find a second point and plot it.

3. Draw the line that connects the two points.

Todd Grevsmuhl's insight:

This website is extremely useful for students as it thoroughly explains all the steps required to graph linear equations as well as the equations required.

 

It also provides worked examples, and a couple of quizzes for the students to complete on their newly learnt work.

 

As a teacher this can be a great way of judging how all the students in the class are coping with this unit, by taking note of the quiz results. This allows for you to understand which students are struggling and where they are struggling, and develop a plan to help them better understand the topic.
