Quadratic Grouping is a powerful learning aid to help students master the factoring of quadratic trinomials by the Grouping Method also known as the AC method and the solving of quadratic equations.
Interactive Coaching Calculators and Guides combine to speed the learning process.
The Grouping Method factors harder trinomials such as 3x² + 7x + 4, but also handles simple cases.
Students develop their skills quickly as they work with the calculator and see each step of a process in detail.
- Finding the target of the × and of the +
- Finding the signs of the integer pair
- Splitting the x term
- Grouping and factoring
- Completing the factoring
Students learn quickly when they focus on a particular step and investigate what happens when the sign of the x-coefficient switches between positive and negative.
The Coaching Calculator focuses on quadratic trinomials with coefficients up to 149.
The in depth Guide is ideal for students as the menu design reinforces each problem solving step and examples highlight and simplify algebra that students find hard.
For convenience, the app also has Coaching Calculators covering many quadratic factoring and solving methods :
- factoring by Box or Grid method
- factoring by Guess and Check or Trial and Error method
- factoring by Difference of Squares
- solving by quadratic formula
- solving by Completing the Square
