Algebra 2 Unit 3 was all about solving quadratic equations. Originally, I had planned to make it about solving quadratics, polynomials, exponentials, and logarithms. But, I found that it was smarter to cover solving logarithmic equations at the same time that I taught logarithms, etc. I really should have broken Algebra 2 up into smaller units this year. So, all we needed to focus on for Unit 3 was Quadratics.

The solving by graphing page and the completing the square foldable at the end are new this year. The other pages have been posted before with slightly less color coding.

Solving by Factoring and Graphing:
Solving Quadratics by Factoring:
Solving Quadratics by Graphing
I used the same equations from the factoring page so students could (hopefully!) make the connection between finding x-intercepts and finding solutions.
Quadratic Formula and Square Roots:
Solving Quadratics by Square Roots:
Completing the Square Booklet Foldable:
I gave students four of their own problems to work on the inside of the foldable.
