# Solving Quadratics by Graphing Using the TI-Nspire

Post Contents

We created this interactive notebook page for solving quadratics by graphing using the TI-Nspire. We glued this in our INBs after our Frayer Model for the phrase “Solve A Quadratic Equation.”

This year, I am using the TI-Nspire graphing calculators with my Algebra 2 students.  As someone who was trained to use a TI-84 in high school and a TI-89 in college, this has been a big change for me.

But, I’ve learned to love the Nspire.  I have yet to decide which calculator I will use with my students next year as we transition to Common Core, however.

I typed up these steps for my students to glue in their notebooks in case they forgot the process to find the solutions graphically.  We did four problems together as practice.
