Completing the square IS the quadratic formula as far as I am concerned, just that plugging into the formula is faster than going through the derivation every time.
Graphing is slow and not so accurate.
If it can be factored using whole numbers, that is fastest and easiest.
I use
1. factors
2. If I can not find factors immediately, use quadratic equation.
