TITLE : Unit 05: Quadratic Relations, Equations, and Inequalities SUGGESTED DURATION : 14 days

Unit Overview

This unit bundles student expectations that address writing equations of parabolas given various characteristics; writing quadratic functions given three points;  formulating, solving, and determining the reasonableness of solutions to a system of equations consisting of a linear equation and a quadratic equation; and  solving quadratic equations and inequalities. Concepts are incorporated into both mathematical and real-world problem situations. According to the Texas Education Agency, mathematical process standards including application, tools and techniques, communication, representations, relationships, and justifications should be integrated (when applicable) with content knowledge and skills so that students are prepared to use mathematics in everyday life, society, and the workplace.

Prior to this unit, in Algebra I Units 07 and 08, students investigated quadratic functions and equations. Students also formulated quadratic models to represent problem situations and applied various methods to solve quadratic equations. In Algebra I Unit 05 and Algebra II Unit 03, students investigated systems of linear equations.

During this unit, students use a system of three equations in three variables to write quadratic functions given three specified points in a plane and justify the quadratic function using the graphing calculator. Students transform quadratic functions from standard form, f(x) = ax2 + bx + c, to vertex form, f(x) = a(x – h)2 + k, and identify attributes of f(x), including vertex, symmetries, maximum and minimum. Students write equations of parabolas from attributes including vertex, focus, directrix, axis of symmetry, and direction of opening. Students define the complex number system and its subsets as well as perform operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication) with complex numbers. Students solve quadratic equations using various methods, including graphing, factoring, completing the square, and the quadratic formula, and verify solutions by graphing and multiplying factors created by roots. Students solve quadratic inequalities graphically and algebraically. Students formulate quadratic equations from tables of data and real-world problem situations, solve the quadratic equations by a method of choice, and justify the solution in terms of the problem situation. Students formulate systems of equations consisting of two equations, the first linear and the second quadratic, solve the system algebraically, and determine the reasonableness of the solution in terms of the problem situation.

After this unit, in Algebra 2 Units 06, 07, 08 and 11, students will continue to apply the concepts of quadratic functions, equations, and inequalities. In subsequent mathematics courses, students will also continue to apply these concepts when quadratic functions, equations, and inequalities arise in problem situations.

In Algebra II, analysis of quadratic relations, including the equations and attributes of parabolas, is identified as STAAR Readiness Standard 2A.4B and is subsumed under STAAR Reporting Category 4: Quadratic and Square Root Functions, Equations, and Inequalities. Formulating system of equations and solving quadratic and square root equations are identified as STAAR Readiness Standards 2A.3A and 2A.4F and are subsumed under STAAR Reporting Category 3: Writing and Solving Systems of Equations and Inequalities and STAAR Reporting Category 4: Quadratic and Square Root Functions, Equations, and Inequalities. Performing operations with complex numbers is identified as STAAR Supporting Standard 2A.7A and is subsumed under STAAR Reporting Category 1: Number and Algebraic Methods. Writing quadratic functions, formulating and solving quadratic equations, and solving quadratic inequalities are identified as STAAR Supporting Standards 2A.4A, 2A.4D, 2A.4E, and 2A.4H. These STAAR Supporting Standards are subsumed under STAAR Reporting Category 4: Quadratic and Square Root Functions, Equations, and Inequalities. Solving and determining the reasonableness to a system of a linear equation and a quadratic equation is identified as STAAR Supporting Standards 2A.3C and 2A.3D and are subsumed under STAAR Reporting Category 3: Writing and Solving Systems of Equations and Inequalities. This unit is supporting the development of Texas College and Career Readiness Standards (TxCCRS): I. Numeric Reasoning A2, B1; II. Algebraic Reasoning A1, B1, C1, D1, D2; III. Geometric Reasoning B2, C1; VII. Functions A1, A2, B1, B2, C2; VIII. Problem Solving and Reasoning; IX. Communication and Representation; X. Connections.

According to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), Developing Essential Understanding of Functions, Grades 9-12, understanding of the function concept is essential to describing and analyzing quantities which vary with respect to one another. According to research from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (2000), high school algebra should provide students with insights into mathematical abstraction and structure. High school students’ algebra experience should enable them to create and use tabular, symbolic, graphical, and verbal representations and to analyze and understand patterns, relations, and functions with a higher degree of sophistication. Students should develop an understanding of the algebraic properties that govern manipulation of symbols in expressions, equations, and inequalities.

MISCONCEPTIONS / UNDERDEVELOPED CONCEPTS

Misconceptions:

  • Some students may think that the terms zeros, x-intercepts, roots, and solutions are all the same and can be used interchangeably rather than understanding that when an equation is set equal to zero, these will be equivalent, but not at other times. Roots and solutions pertain to equations, while x-intercepts and zeros pertain to functions.
  • Some students may think that in order to be a complex number, the number must contain an imaginary part rather than that all numbers can be written in complex form, e.g., 25 can be written as 25 + 0i, and its conjugate is 25 – 0i.
  • Some students may think that the x- and y-values in the solution to a system of two linear equations in two variables can never be equal in value.

Unit Vocabulary

  • Complex conjugates – complex numbers having the same real part but an opposite imaginary part
  • Complex number – sum of a real number and an imaginary number, usually written in the form a + bi
  • Directrix – horizontal or vertical line not passing through the focus whose distance from the vertex is |p| and is perpendicular to the axis of symmetry
  • Focus – point not on the directrix whose distance from the vertex is |p| and lies on the axis of symmetry
  • Imaginary number – a number in the form of bi where b is a real number and i                        
  • |p| –  distance from vertex to directrix or distance from vertex to focus
  • Parabola – the locus of points, P, such that the distance from P to a point F (the focus) is equal to the distance from P to a line q (the directrix)
  • x-intercept(s)x coordinate of a point at which the relation crosses the x-axis, meaning the y coordinate equals zero, (x, 0)
  • Zeros – the value(s) of x such that the y value of the relation equals zero; the x-intercepts
