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.

Transformation of Functions Day 1

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Functions

Big Idea:Students will use structure and patterns to determine the "rules" for translating functions.

Can the Dog Reach the Bone? Determine whether a Point Lies within a Circle

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Circles

Big Idea:Will the dog be able to reach its bone? Students apply the definition of a circle, along with a method for determining whether or not a point lies on a circle.

Transformation of Polynomial Functions

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Polynomial Functions

Big Idea:Models support conceptual understanding of function transformations. From cube to cubic!

Quadratic Functions Review and Portfolio

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

More Abstract Work with Quadratic Functions

Big Idea:What are the key ideas and skills of this unit? What do you most need to review or understand better?

Standard Form of Circle Equations

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Circles

Big Idea:How can I tell if this weird-looking equation will make a circle when I graph it? Students discover how to apply previous knowledge about completing the square to a new problem.

End of Unit Differentiated Problem Set

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Exponential and Logarithmic Functions

Big Idea:This lesson allows the students to apply their mathematical knowledge in a real context.

Shifting Exponential Functions

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Exponential Functions and Equations

Big Idea:Building on yesterdayâs idea, key features of exponential graphs, students see how parameter changes of the function can change these features.

Transformations "How To" Guide

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Functions

Big Idea:Students will be producing a "how to" guide for horizontal and vertical transformations of functions.

Stretching Exponential Functions (and your mind)

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Exponential Functions and Equations

Big Idea:Studentsâ algebraic skills are reinforced as they discover that some different transformations are actually equivalent.

Finding Vertices of Parabolas

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

More Abstract Work with Quadratic Functions

Big Idea:Why is finding the vertex of a parabola useful? How can you find the vertex when the function rule is written different ways?

Circle Lattice Points

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Circles

Big Idea:Instead of telling students the equation for a circle, developing it themselves enables students to make the connection between circles and the Pythagorean Theorem.

Further Exploration of Distance Functions

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Absolute Value Functions and More Piecewise Functions

Big Idea:Are there function rules to fit these relationships? Students apply prior knowledge to a new problem and find functions to fit their data. The optional use of technology allows them to check models on their own.

More 4-Column Data Tables

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

More Abstract Work with Quadratic Functions

Big Idea:What happens when we remove the two middle columns? Students develop a method to solve problems with even less information given than the day before.

Profit Maximization

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

More Abstract Work with Quadratic Functions

Big Idea:What happens to the number of customers as you increase the price of the item? How does this affect your profit?
