1 Note: This Unit contains concepts that are separated for teacher use, but which must be integrated by the completion of the unit so students can make sense of choosing appropriate methods for solving quadratic functions. There are practice questions that reflect the types of assessment questions that may be used on semester eams. There is also a list of reflection questions that should be covered to help students demonstrate practice standards. It is suggested that teachers work these problems before instruction to identify areas where students may have difficulty, then include appropriate instruction and review as necessary.

36 Discriminant: the discriminant of the quadratic equation a b c 0 is b 4ac Note: The discriminant is the radicand of the quadratic formula! Determining the Number of Real Solutions of a Quadratic Equation Using the Discriminant Teacher Note: Students should have come up with this in the QOD. If If If b b b 4ac 0, then there are no real solutions. 4ac 0, then there is one solution. 4ac 0, then there are two real solutions. E 36: Determine the number of real solutions that the equations have Rewrite the equation in standard form a 3, b 1, c 1 Find the discriminant. b ac Determine the number of real solution(s). b 4ac 11 0, so there are no real solutions.. 45 Rewrite the equation in standard form a 1, b 5, c 4 Find the discriminant. b ac Determine the number of real solution(s). b 4ac 41 0, so there are two real solutions Rewrite the equation in standard form a 9, b 1, c 4 Find the discriminant. b ac Determine the number of real solution(s). b 4ac 0, so there is one real solution.

37 Determining the Number of -Intercepts of a Quadratic Function Using the Discriminant Because the -intercepts of y a b c are the same as the zeros of the equation a b c 0, we can use the discriminant to determine the number of -intercepts that a quadratic function has. E 37: Sketch the graph of a quadratic function with a negative discriminant. Because the discriminant, b 4ac 0, the function will have no -intercept. A sample answer is shown in the graph. Note: Any parabola which does not intersect the -ais is an acceptable answer. Application Problem E 38: A baton twirler tosses a baton into the air. The baton leaves the twirler s hand 6 feet above the ground and has an initial vertical velocity of 45 feet per second. This can be modeled by the equation h 16t 45t 6, where h is the height (in feet) and t is the time (in seconds). The twirler wants her baton to reach at least 40 feet. Will the baton reach that height? Substitute h 1. Write in standard form t 45t t 45t 34 a 16, b 45, c 34 Find the discriminant. b ac Since the discriminant is less than 0, this equation has no real solution. Therefore, the baton could not reach 40 feet. How high will the baton reach? Graph the function h t t Find the maimum (verte). The baton will reach approimately ft. You Try: Find values for c so that the equation will have no real solution, one real solution, and two real solutions. c 3 0 QOD: Write a quadratic equation which can be factored. Find its discriminant. Teacher Note: Have students share their answers to the QOD and allow students to make a conjecture for how to determine if a quadratic polynomial is factorable using the discriminant. (It must be a perfect square.) Alg I Unit 08 Notes QuadFuncEqRadicalsrev Page 37 of 40 5/0/013

40 10. Eplain the zero-product property and why it is useful. Give an eample to illustrate your eplanation. Sample answer: The zero-product property states that if a product of factors is equal to zero, then one or more of the factors is equal to zero. For eample, in the equation the polynomial can be factored as ( + 7)( ). Since this factored polynomial is equal to zero, then the value of at least one of the factors is 0. This fact is useful because you can easily solve the equations and to find the solutions = 7 and =. Construct viable arguments for the following reflection questions. 1.
