2. Learning Objective: To solve quadratic equations by taking square roots and to use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems involving right triangles. Notes Properties of Square roots ** Product property - ** Quotient property -

3. Learning Objective: To solve quadratic equations by taking square roots and to use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems involving right triangles. EX 1 – Solve SADMEP! Try t his p. 282 (middle and bottom)

4. Learning Objective: To solve quadratic equations by taking square roots and to use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems involving right triangles. EX 2 – A helicopter 85 ft above a designated area drops a boxes of food to a disaster area. The height of the box above the ground can be modeled by , where t is the time in seconds after it has been released. After how many seconds will it hit the ground?
