- HSA-CED.A.1Create equations and inequalities in one variable and use them to solve problems. Include equations arising from linear and quadratic functions, and simple rational and exponential functions.
- HSA-CED.A.2Create equations in two or more variables to represent relationships between quantities; graph equations on coordinate axes with labels and scales.
- HSA-CED.A.3Represent constraints by equations or inequalities, and by systems of equations and/or inequalities, and interpret solutions as viable or nonviable options in a modeling context. For example, represent inequalities describing nutritional and cost constraints on combinations of different foods.
- HSA-CED.A.4Rearrange formulas to highlight a quantity of interest, using the same reasoning as in solving equations. For example, rearrange Ohmâs law V = IR to highlight resistance R.

Ahoy team! What can you see? Finding functions.

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Basic Functions and Equations

Big Idea:Students improve their teamwork skills by gathering and analyzing data to investigate a linear model.

Solving Linear Equations in Two Variables

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Making Informed Decisions with Systems of Equations

Big Idea:This MAP Classroom Challenge provides students with an engaging and thought-provoking activity about notebooks, pens and cash registers to learn about solving equations in two variables!

What is Algebra?

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Modeling with Algebra

Big Idea:Algebra is built on axioms and definitions and relies on proofs just as much as geometry.

The Tortoise and the Hare Piece-wise Functions

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Modeling with Functions

Big Idea:Will the tortoise win again? Students will not only find out but write a mathematical story about it.

Writing the Equation of A Linear Function (Day 2 of 2)

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Linear Functions

Big Idea:This lesson allows students to understand how to use slope to write an explicit formula for a linear function.

Solving Systems by Graphing

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Systems of Equations

Big Idea:As students gain confidence in graphing - and interpreting the intersection points on - systems of equations, we continue to see how this skill relates to guess and check.

Writing the Equation for a Linear Function (Day 1 of 2)

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Linear Functions

Big Idea:This lesson shows how to approach writing the equation of a line using multiple methods.

Review of Polynomial Roots and Complex Numbers

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Polynomial Theorems and Graphs

Big Idea:Arithmetic with polynomials and complex numbers are performed in similar ways, but powers of i have a meaning distinct from powers of variables.

Solving Two Variable Inequalities

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Extending Equations

Big Idea:See how to use test points to determine how to determine the solution to a two-variable inequality.

Ahoy again! What can you see now? Building Rational Functions

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:
