Ch 15: OAE Mathematics: Quadratic Equations

About This Chapter

Study quadratic equations in this chapter to increase your chances of correctly answering related questions on the OAE Mathematics test. Each lesson includes a video, transcript and quiz to help you prepare for test day.

OAE Mathematics: Quadratic Equations - Chapter Summary

This chapter's video lessons outline the various methods by which you can solve quadratic equations, including completing the square and factoring. You'll also revisit strategies for solving non-standard equations and multiplying binomials. Watch these lessons prior to sitting for the OAE Mathematics examination in order to get a clearer understanding of the questions you'll encounter. This chapter can assist you with:

  • Explaining the contrasts between different kinds of parabolas
  • Defining binomials and solving multiplication problems
  • Using the FOIL and FOIL in reverse methods to solve problems
  • Converting an equation with the factoring method and using the quadratic formula
  • Using the zero product and distributive properties

Accomplished instructors address these concepts so that you can review and master quadratic equations. Prepare for the OAE Mathematics examination by watching the illuminating video lessons or reading the accompanying text transcripts. Enjoy the convenience of studying interactively anywhere or at anytime. You can even submit your questions on quadratic equations to instructors. The included self-assessment quizzes and a chapter examination will evaluate your grasp of these mathematical principles.

OAE Mathematics: Quadratic Equations Chapter Objectives

The Patterns, Algebra and Functions section of the OAE Mathematics examination includes questions on quadratic equations. The section makes up 24% of the overall score, and it will assess your ability to understand and solve these and other equations. You should allow about four hours and 15 minutes for completion of the entire exam. You may use an on-screen calculator to answer the 150 multiple-choice questions on the computer-administered examination.

Parabolas in Standard, Intercept, and Vertex Form

1. Parabolas in Standard, Intercept, and Vertex Form

By rearranging a quadratic equation, you can end up with an infinite number of ways to express the same thing. Learn about the three main forms of a quadratic and the pros and cons of each.

Multiplying Binomials Using FOIL and the Area Method

2. Multiplying Binomials Using FOIL and the Area Method

From the distributive property, to FOIL, to the area model, to happy faces and claws, there are many different ways to learn how to multiply binomials. In this lesson, you'll learn how to use all of them and get to pick which one you like the most.

How to Factor Quadratic Equations: FOIL in Reverse

3. How to Factor Quadratic Equations: FOIL in Reverse

So, you know how to multiply binomials with the FOIL method, but can you do it backwards? That's exactly what factoring is, and it can be pretty tricky. Check out this lesson to learn a method that will allow you to factor quadratic trinomials with a leading coefficient of 1.

How to Complete the Square

4. How to Complete the Square

Completing the square can help you learn where the maximum or minimum of a parabola is. If you're running a business and trying to make some money, it might be a good idea to know how to do this! Find out what I'm talking about here.

How to Solve a Quadratic Equation by Factoring

5. How to Solve a Quadratic Equation by Factoring

If your favorite video game, 'Furious Fowls,' gave you the quadratic equation for each shot you made, would you be able to solve the equation to make sure every one hit its target? If not, you will after watching this video!

How to Use the Quadratic Formula to Solve a Quadratic Equation

6. How to Use the Quadratic Formula to Solve a Quadratic Equation

When solving a quadratic equation by factoring doesn't work, the quadratic formula is here to save the day. Learn what it is and how to use it in this lesson.

How to Solve Quadratics That Are Not in Standard Form

7. How to Solve Quadratics That Are Not in Standard Form

It isn't always the case that your equation will be set up nicely for you to solve. In this lesson, learn how to factor or use the quadratic formula to solve quadratic equations, even when they are not in standard form.
