Day 124: Quadratics UGH!

Quadratics with A not equal to 1 REALLY REALLY suck!  We are doing a little more practice today with these and then we are taking a break and looking at square roots but man they have SUCH a hard time.  I heard the words “guess and check” so many times and students were very frustrated that there were no other strategies besides guess and check.  They are very used to looking for faster and more efficient strategies that when they were faced with having to do TWO GUESS AND CHECKS they almost fell apart and gave up!  I had to continue to whisper “perseverance” in their ears all period.
