Lesson 17: Quadratic Inequalities

The lesson begins with using graphs to solve quadratic inequalities. An equation modeling the height of a rocket is graphed along with a second equation that represents the minimum height at which the rocket can legally and safely be exploded. The intersections of the graphs provide the solution interval. A second method is then presented where the inequality is put into standard form and then solved for its \(x\)-intercepts. Interval notation and union of sets is reviewed before a purely algebraic procedure for solving the inequalities is presented. The lesson concludes with an application problem.
