This lesson unit is intended to help teachers assess how well students are able to solve quadratics in one variable. In particular, the lesson will help teachers identify and help students who have the following difficulties: making sense of a real life situation and deciding on the math to apply to the problem; solving quadratic equations by taking square roots, completing the square, using the quadratic formula, and factoring; and interpreting results in the context of a real life situation.

Lesson unit serves as a formative assessment tool to determine how well students are able to solve quadratics in one variable. Cutting Corners provides a real-life situation using mathematical principles to analyze and interpret results. Students work individually and in small cooperative learning groups to build conceptual understanding through the use of a range of mathematical practices.

Materials provide instructional strategies to address common misconceptions.
