So

I have a project for my algebra 2 class and I do not know how to do it. It is make a "quadratics for dummies" article. You see I am the "dummy" in this scenario and how is the "dummy" supposed to make a article for the "dummy"? Its all rather demeaning you know. Anyways the specifics of the project are that

A. I have to create an article simplifying the directions for analyzing and solving quadratic functions taking into account complex numbers.

B. Formulate a theory for predicting when each of the described methods should be used for each particular function (I think the three ways are completing the square, factoring, and using the quadratic formula).

C. Create a graphic organizer such as a flow chart or a flow map to show your recommendations.

If anyone could help me with this I would be ecstatic. Really!

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Todd,

I'll advise you to first sign up for an account here, as guest can't reply to threads.

Can you give us the specific tasks that you need to do?

hi Todd23

There's plenty here:

But please make your own words and diagrams rather than copying directly.
