Note from the author:
A complete formative lesson with embedded slideshow, mini lecture screencasts, checks for understanding, practice items, mixed review, and reflection. I create these assignments to supplement each lesson of Pearson's Common Core Edition Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry courses. See also mathquest.net and twitter.com/mathquestEDU. The outlined content above was added from outside of Formative.

◆ touches the x-axis only once
◆ misses the x axis completely

• crosses the x-axis twice
• touches the x-axis only once
• misses the x axis completely   2

Problem 2 Got It? Reasoning: Would a negative profit make sense in Problem 2? Explain.
No; Only positive quantities can represent profit.
Yes; A negative profit means that more money was spent than earned.    6

Problem 4 Got It? Reasoning: Will the golf ball in Problem 4 ever reach a height of 110 ft? Use the discriminant to explain your answer.
No; The discriminant would still be negative meaning the related equation has no real solutions.
Yes; The discriminant would be positive so the related equation has 2 real solutions.    9

Reasoning: For what value(s) of k does the equation below have one real solution? two real solutions?

• k = 6
• k > 6
• k < 6
• The equation has one real solution for the following value(s) of k.
• The equation has two real solutions for the following value(s) of k.
