Solving Quadratics by Factoring and the Zero-Product Property

Ugh...I'm still finding random interactive notebook pages from last year that I never blogged about.  This is part of the reason that I'm trying to force myself to blog my notebook pages this year as entire units.

Here is Solving Quadratic Equations by Factoring.  I typed up the Zero-Product Property for students to cut out and glue in their notebooks.  In the future, I'd probably type up the steps as well to save time.  I might make them fill in the blank or something similar...

  1. You've found another entry for the "things the weird Australians have a different name for" list :)
    I've never heard of the "Zero-Product Property", but I guess it's just as sensible as "Null Factor Law"

  2. Here in the Philippines we use the same term. But do you have action research sample Ms. Sarah?

    1. I don't. I'm hoping to perform my own research project on INBs, though. I will hopefully post about it once I start the process. :)

  3. I would like to conduct an action research to test the effectiveness of INB,to my own students. Can you please help me for some conceptual framework?

    1. I'm not sure exactly what you're asking for. Could you be more specific?

    Your picture is not showing here and I would LOVE to see what you had originally displayed. I decided late (after school started) to implement the INB. I figure any help I can give my current students to best understand is better than waiting until next semester for the new group of students. (We are on the 4X4 block.) Any suggestions for a late starter would be appreciated! I LOVE YOUR WORK!!!
