Teamwork – It’s All About Us: Solving Quadratic Equations
“Teamwork – It’s All About Us” examines the effects of a positive team and those of a negative team. Teamwork centers on individuals playing their parts, where everyone is an important factor. Teamwork requires respect for others, specifically by addressing mixed feelings. Finally, positive teamwork calls for individuals to find a middle ground and a starting point, then work their way up from there. With strong, positive leadership, a team can reach the top in no time!
