# Lesson 13: Completing the Square

Topic(s):

This lesson introduces completing the square as a means of expanding the set of quadratic equations that may be solved beyond the extraction of roots and factoring. Simpler cases are first presented and then towards the end of the lesson a procedure for completing the square of $ax^2 + bx + c = 0$ is given.
