Students learn how to solve a quadratic in the form x2 + bx + c = 0 by completing the square.

Later, as learning progresses, use completing the square to solve a real-life problem.

**Differentiated Learning Objectives**

- All students should be able to solve a quadratic equation in the form ax
^{2}+bx+c=0 where a equals 1 using the method of completing the square. - Most students should be able to solve a quadratic equation in the form ax
^{2}+bx+c=0 where a does not equal 1 using the method of completing the square. - Some students should be able to use completing the square to solve equivalent quadratic identities.
