Completeing the Square!

Class time seems to just fly by! Sometimes we get hung up on a difficult problem and time seems to  d r a g  and sometimes we cover so much material in such a short time that it just seems to fly by.

I know some of us are still struggling with completeing the square. Well, help is here. I've got a brief video taped lecture you can watch to help you with this material over the weekend if you need it. The movie is of an instructor from the University of Idaho.

In order to watch the video you need to download the free realaudio player from here. (It's a little more than 11 Mb so if you have a slow internet connection this isn't a very good option for you.) After that, just click on the link below for help with completeing the square!


Let me know what you thought of the video in the comments to this post. Did it help you learn? Is it clear and easy to follow? Should I post more of these? ;-)

Have a great weekend!

I was totally lost on this concept until I saw your video. These steps saved my homework paper. They weren't in my textbook and my teacher just threw this on us without any real info. Thanks!
