Quadratic equations form an important topic in most school curricula. More often than not the problems on quadratic equations discussed in the school curricula can be solved by a routine application of a handful of formulae and laborious algebraic manipulations. As a result, the topic may appear to be charmless to the students and teachers alike. The goal of this article is to debunk this notion by way of illustrative examples that will bring the adventurous side of quadratic equations to the fore.
