You can pick the friends you know…

… Just don’t pick your friend’s nose.

Speaking of picking, that’s what we were doing today – picking the best method to solve a quadratic equation. We’ve covered four methods in this unit that are useful in solving these equations:

  1. Graphing
  2. Square Root Property
  3. Factoring
  4. Quadratic Formula

As we briefly mentioned today, each method has it’s pros and cons. Some work when others won’t, but the Quadratic Formula never fails because it’s the Manly-Man of methods! However, it is very tedious and time-consuming! We will talk more in detail about putting the different methods together during the lesson tomorrow…Stay Tuned!
