Reflection: Intervention and Extension Choosing a Method to Find x-intercepts - Section 1: Opening


Some of my students are already familiar with factoring and are ready for some more advanced work. A curriculum based assessment is a great time to meet students where they are. Students who are ready for more advanced factoring can work on Factoring 2, a more advanced set of tasks.

Choosing a Method to Find x-intercepts

Unit 4: Quadratics!
Lesson 14 of 18

Objective: SWBAT determine which method (graphing, vertex form, or factoring) is most appropriate for finding x-intercepts given a quadratic function. SWBAT find a quadratic for two given x-intercepts.

Big Idea: Students take a step back from their work to examine a variety of quadratic functions and reflect on why they might choose one method over another.
