### Quadratic Equations and Quadratic Functions

Please complete and hand in on Monday 18 September:

Solve by factorising:

1. x^{2} - 7x - 8 = 0

2. x^{2} + x - 12 = 0

3. 3x^{2} + 11x + 6 = 0

4. 10x^{2} - 9x - 7 = 0

Complete the square, sketch graphs showing line of symmetry and coordinates of max or min point:

5. y = x^{2} + 8x - 7

6. y = 3x^{2} - 15x + 8

7. y = -2x^{2} + 6x - 1

Solve using the quadratic formula giving roots to 3 sig fig:

8. 2x^{2} - 5x - 4 = 0

9. 3x^{2} + 8x + 4 = 0

10. State the values of the discriminants in Q8 and Q9

Also watch the second of Professor Stephen Chew's videos from the links below.

### Becoming an Effective Learner

This advice contained in these 5 short videos can help you to improve your study skills in all your subjects at both A-level and at university. We will watch them in class and talk about them in September. However, I believe you need to watch them more than once to take all the advice on board.

Professor Stephen Chew is a cognitive psychologist from Samford University, Birmingham, Alabama. In 2011, he recorded five short videos (each 5 - 9 minutes long) to help students become more effective learners. They contain a whole range of dos and don'ts together with practical suggestions you can adopt to improve your learning. Below are direct links to each video.
