Quadratic Equations – Word Problems

This section has the following videos:

  • Lesson Video
  • Example Set A Practice Problems (Video Solutions)
  • Example Set B Practice Problems (Video Solutions)
  • Example Set C Practice Problems (Video Solutions)

In this lesson I will teach you about quadratic equation word problems.  Of course you want to ensure you have a solid understanding of solving quadratic equations before watching this lesson.  Like all word problems in math there is no one single procedure you can use to solve a problem.  When studying how to solve word problems we focus on general steps and approaches that will help you organize and solve the problem.  After you watch the lesson the most important thing to do is practice, practice, practice.  The amount of effort you invest in practicing solving word problems will be directional proportional to your mastery of them.  Lastly quadratic equation word problems are interesting and I think fun- really study hard as these type of problems are on many tests to include the SAT/ACT.
