The quadratic formula is one of, if not, the first “big” formulas introduced in algebra. It looks pretty daunting: Many students have get a lot of anxiety when they see this. However, it is a powerful analytical tool that helps us find the roots, or zeros, of a quadratic function. These are the points where … Continue reading The Quadratic Formula
