Mr. Ramirez makes his video easy to follow with the color coding. I really like that he referenced the standard quadratic equation form at the beginning to help clarify. He was very clear in his steps the whole time and explained everything along the way. The layout was easy to read and his work was organized. I really liked this video.

I really liked the way Mr. Ramirez explained this concept. In particular, I like that he added 7 to both sides so when the complete the square value was added it was easy to clearly see that it was (x 3) squared. I think it would be helpful to keep the original equation on the screen so we can see it the whole time. Also, sometimes his work didn't follow in an organized pattern--things jumped around the screen a bit. Otherwise, I like this explanation of complete the square.
