The Use of Transformations in Solving Equations
Libeskind, Shlomo
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v41 n3 p432-434 2010
Many workshops and meetings with the US high school mathematics teachers revealed a lack of familiarity with the use of transformations in solving equations and problems related to the roots of polynomials. This note describes two transformational approaches to the derivation of the quadratic formula as well as transformational approaches to problems concerning roots of polynomials.
