Functions INB Page

I've decided to make functions the key focus of the first few units of Algebra 2 this year. I mentioned this in my post about my SBG skill lists: This year, the start of the [Algebra 2] course is going to focus on functions, transformations and inverses. For quadratics that…

Solving Linear and Absolute Value Equations INB Pages

This is the second skill for Algebra 2, which is pretty much what it says in the title. At this point, we're almost ready to start talking about functions, but I wanted to "review" a few things about solving equations first. Which brings us to these pages. Except, lets just…

Simplifying Radicals INB Pages (with adding and subtracting)

Our very first skill in Algebra 2 this year was this: IN1: I can simplify radical expressions. Even though it isn't particularly related to the rest of the first unit (it's called "Introductory Algebra Skills", but it's really functions and transformations, focusing on linear and absolute value functions), there are…

Undefined Terms INB Pages

This last week saw my Geometry classes finish off our introductory Reasoning and Logic unit, which means we're ready to go with setting up the basic building blocks of geometry: the Undefined Terms. I took similar notes last year, but they were constrained to a table on half a letter…

Building Equations... Again

I'm teaching again! There's so much that I can share about the start of my new job, but for now I just really want to blog about lesson ideas. So let's do that. In Geometry we're going through our introductory review unit. I wanted to see what my students' algebraic…
