Resources Referenced on Unit Guide:
Quadratic Equations Paideia - Students will determine when each process is best for solving quadratics:

Power vs. Radical Equations Discovery - Students solve, compare, and contrast power and radical equations to the process and number of solutions:

Discovery Lesson on Relationship of Focus to Parabola - Hands-on discovery showing the importance and meaning of the focus of a parabola:

Discovery on Conjugates Canceling - Simple discovery shows students why and how conjugates yield rational numbers when multiplied.

Discovery on Rationalizing Denominators - Students discover why conjugates are necessary for two terms in a denominator but not for one.

i Powers Discovery - Students see the pattern of i to various powers. (The format of this can be very improved - if anyone has ideas, I'd appreciate it, I've been messing with it for 3 years!)

Quadratic Roots Discovery - Students discover the relationship between the discriminant, graph, and number/types of solutions to quadratics.

Other Resources:

Solving Higher-Order Equations - Students solve a 5th degree equation with two complex solutions. Use after solving a cubic with two complex solutions - possible Paideia.

Radicals and Area - Students have to set up and solve (by rationalizing denominators and using the calculator) area problems with radicals.

Sums of Squares Discovery - Students solve equations with the sums of perfect squares (instead of difference) to see a pattern with imaginary numbers.

Writing Polynomials from Real and Complex Roots - Students are led through a series of questions to write polynomials given roots they determine.
