We are now focusing on quadratic equations. We started by reviewing what we have discussed previously–“expressions”–and now equations:

We outlined the various techniques we have for studied for solving quadratic equations:

We reviewed applying the square root property, for solving quadratic equations in a certain form:

And we went through an example of solving a quadratic equation by completing the square–in this case we can also solve this equation by factoring and using the zero product property:

Recall that we used completing the square, together with the square root property, to derive the quadratic formula. We will also use the technique of completing the square for analyzing graphs of quadratic expressions, and for graphs of circles.
