Thanks for going to the trouble of explaining the history and applications of quadratic equations. The point of it all was never explained to me when I was thrown into the deep end with them, age 10. Now that I've been asked to explain them to a friend's son, your material is helping to demystify things. Matt, North Wales, UK
