1. 6.5 The Quadratic Formula and the Discriminant

2. We have a number of different way of finding the roots if a quadratic equations #1. Making a table #2. Factoring #3. Completing the Square Now a new way that comes from completing the square. The Quadratic Formula

3. The Quadratic Formula Solve for x by completing the square.

4. The Quadratic Formula Solve for x by completing the square.

5. The Quadratic Formula Solve for x by completing the square.

6. The Quadratic Formula Solve for x by completing the square.

7. Yes, you can remember this formula Pop goes the Weasel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lbABbfU6Zc&feature=related Gilligan’s Island http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CWTt9QFioY&feature=related This one I can’t explain http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=haq6kpWdEMs&feature=related

8. How does it work Equation:

9. How does it work Equation:

10. The Discriminant The number in the square root of the quadratic formula.

11. The Discriminant The Discriminant can be negative, positive or zero If the Discriminant is positive, there are 2 real answers. If the square root is not a prefect square ( for example ), then there will be 2 irrational roots ( for example ).

12. The Discriminant The Discriminant can be negative, positive or zero If the Discriminant is positive, there are 2 real answers. If the Discriminant is zero, there is 1 real answer. If the Discriminant is negative, there are 2 complex answers. complex answer have i.
