Yes, I copied it quickly and goofed. It's definitely supposed to be negative. Sorry about that!

I don't think so when it's in pdf - but I'm not absolutely sure.

I'm sorry that it didn't meet your needs.

Scipi  (TpT Seller) re: Form A Graphing, Continuity, and Limits with Rational Functions
I saw your store on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. I left you a rating. Well done! And thanks so much for remembering to make an answer key. Since you are new to the TPT world, here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products.

Create a cover page for each of your products which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. You might also add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page for the teacher. (How do use this? When? Etc.) List several ways you use this product in your classroom. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product.

Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page. Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations. Also number your pages. Finally, unless you want your products revised (I do for my tests) save everything in a PDF format as it is harder to change.

I think it is important that we see what others are doing; so, feel free to look at any or all of my freebies listed below for ideas.

Wow!! Thanks so much for all of the helpful information! I really appreciate your welcoming response to my work and look forward to following you as well. Any constructive criticisms would also be greatly appreciated. I do truly believe the great teachers are always learning. I don't consider myself great because I'm always finding more to learn. My beloved high school math teacher and mentor used to always say that she would continue to teach as long as she was learning. So true!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching mathematics for 20+ years. I currently teach Algebra 2 and Calculus, but I have taught Algebra I, Geometry, Math Analysis and Trigonometry (PreCalc) throughout my career.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to incorporate practices supported by cognitive science, specifically cognitive load theory. Most of my activities are designed to promote student engagement during guided instruction. I believe that guided instruction is often misunderstood and characterized as purely lecture. Actively engaging students in concept attainment throughout each lesson is my goal. An article of personal interest is Why Minimal Guidance During Instruction Does Not Work: An Analysis of the Failure of Constructivist, Discovery, Problem-Based, Experiential, and Inquiry-Based Teaching. Evidence in support of guided instruction is explained in the context of human cognitive architecture, expert–novice differences, and cognitive load.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.S. Classical Applied Mathematics, 7-12 Certification in Mathematics, MEd w/ 30 additional hours, Adjunct Certification in Mathematics.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have two children and one grandchild. Prior to teaching, I worked as a research assistant on a project designed to familiarize high school mathematics teachers with applications of mathematics. I worked briefly as a mathematics instruction specialist until I decided to go back to the classroom. I enjoyed working with teachers emensely but really missed working with students on a daily basis. I've participated in a wide variety of PD throughout my career, but I cannot say enough in support of the Professional Learning Community (PLC) model. Our district's PLCs engage in content rich lesson development throughout the year. I love working with colleagues to develop lessons and identify best practices.
