The Quadratic Formula Test
About The Quadratic Formula:

We previously learned how to solve any quadratic equation using the method known as: completing the square. We can use this process to create a general formula for solving any quadratic equation. This formula is known as the “Quadratic Formula”.

Test Objectives:

•Demonstrate the ability to write a quadratic equation in standard form

•Demonstrate the ability to identify a, b, and c in a quadratic equation

•Demonstrate the ability to solve a quadratic equation using the quadratic formula
