Are you having trouble getting your students to take effective notes during math lessons? Are you looking for quick activities that can be completed in a math journal or at the end of a lesson as a check for understanding? If so, these activities are for you.
This packet of scaffolded notes is perf
This is a matching puzzle, also known as a Tarsia. Please see my other puzzles, most of which deal with trigonometry and calculus, with some precalculus thrown in, too.
There are two types of expressions, complex numbers in a + bi form, and multiplication or division expressions yet to be reduced
Would you like a different way for your high school students to review complex numbers? This board game is fun for the students while they sharpen their skills and deepen their understanding of important concepts. They will draw a card and they must correctly answer the question in order to move alo
42-item teacher-lead inquiry into properties and behavior of Polynomial Functions. Best used at the beginning of a unit on polynomial functions (before demonstrating how to solve textbook problems), this activity invites students to use inductive reasoning and class discussion to discover the big id
For this activity, students will practice adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing complex numbers. Task Cards #1-16 are adding/subtracting, #17-28 are multiplying and #29-36 are dividing. I sometimes like to do them one set at a time with students so that they first get comfortable with addin
This lesson introduces complex numbers. It defines an imaginary number and show how complex numbers have both an imaginary and a real part. It can be used for Section 5.6 of the Prentice Hall Algebra 2 textbook.
The lesson show how to add, subtract, multiply and divide complex numbers. It also gi
These operations with complex numbers guided notes delve into the arithmetic of complex numbers. Students will add, subtract, multiply, and divide with complex numbers. They will learn about the conjugates of complex numbers and use this to find the moduli and quotients of complex numbers.
This document contains 36 practice problems involving the following skills and concepts:
- Identifying complex numbers on the complex plane
- Graphing complex numbers
- Arithmetic with complex numbers
- Absolute value (modulus) of complex numbers
- Conjugates of complex numbers
This is a great asse
Nothing like a good criminal investigation to liven up geometry! In this project, students will work in teams to investigate the culprit of six fictional thefts. The criminal has left six messages, layered with practice. Teams will work to build a case and present their findings to the court. Hopefu
This set of Board Sessions consists of an entire year's worth of material from a typical Algebra II class. The order may be a bit different from the order in which the buyer/user is used to . . . but that's the beauty of having all twenty sessions . . . you can use the problems in any order and when
This rubric is part of a series of CCSS high school math rubrics that are based on the CCSS standards' descriptors and a learning progression of the skills from 8th through 12th grades. This rubric can be used to evaluate any type of student work for academic growth and mastery.
This lesson introduces complex numbers and relates them to real numbers and imaginary numbers. Students are also introduced to the complex plane.
The basic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of complex numbers are explained. For division, the concept of the conjug
This document is a checklist for the Number and Quantity Common Core State Standards framework. There are multiple columns included to be able to use this document as a checklist for which common core standards you have taught within your course(s) and a column to notate when, how, where you used ea
This file contains (4) 4-question open-ended assessments involving subtracting complex numbers, dividing complex numbers, finding the absolute value (modulus) of complex numbers, and finding the complex solutions of quadratic equations. These assessments are perfect for end-of-lesson comprehension a
This video is a great tool for preteaching, reteaching, as a supplement for one-on-one tutoring, or (my favorite) as the video component of a flipped classroom! Students will be given an introduction to the topic before being shown in-depth examples of how to solve quadratic functions by finding the
This file contains all of the "Number and Quantity" Math Standards for grades 9-12. This PDF can be printed and cut out to post for daily lessons. They will fit a pocket chart or you can add magnets to the back and display them on a magnetic whiteboard. Tabulated sections will keep your strips or
This is a set of guided notes, homework assignments, and/or entry or exit tickets that you can use to teach your kids about imaginary numbers, solving quadratic equations with complex solutions, complex numbers, and operations with complex numbers. This includes at least a few days of materials.
Self-Contained Learning Handout for Students
Pages 1 and 2 of this documents are for printing a front-back student handout.
Page 3 is the key for the Practice portion.
Included in the printable student handout:
*Student learning objective starts the lesson right
*Basic notes for class di
As our EOC format changes from multiple choice to computer-based and performance-based testing, our assessments must change as well.
This rigorous quiz bundle contains 4 quiz versions and assesses student ability to add, subtract, multiply, and divide complex numbers, as well as find the distance b
Our quizzes are brief, formative diagnostic tools designed to test mastery and identify misconceptions a student has around a single Common Core standard. Assess your students' ability to find the conjugate of a complex number and to use conjugates to find moduli and quotients of complex numbers wit
MY APPROACH TO TEACHING and to the offered UNITS on this website is to pepper the worksheets (and, optionally, the quizzes) with informational guides that serve as text-book-like how-to instructions. How the teacher puts it all together is left to that teacher's unique approach to teaching. In othe
This is a graphic organizer that explains each step in dividing complex numbers (in rectangular form). A worked example is included on the reverse side. This organizer is useful for students new to the topic, struggling learners, and also any learners who need very concrete instructions for solvin
This is a graphic organizer that explains each step in using Demoivre's Theorem to simplify a complex number taken to a specific power. A worked example is included on the reverse side. This organizer is useful for students new to the topic, struggling learners, and also any learners who need very
Two forms of the quiz with a Quiz Review
The quiz covers the following:
- simplifying radicals with and without variables
- complex numbers: adding, subtracting, and multiplying
- Using the Rational Exponent Property to write answers as radical expressions and rational exponents
- Graphing Radical F
Our playlists are “no prep” Common Core aligned lessons designed for small group work, homework, remediation, or extension around a single standard. This content-rich multimedia lesson integrates original instruction with web-based resources to guide students through the rigors of the aligned standa
Here you'll find all the materials you need to flip your Algebra II classroom.
How it works:
1) Videos of each lesson are on YouTube. Students watch the video (at home, in class, in the library, etc.) before the lesson.
2) In class, you review the material, then have them work on "homework." Works
This is a great 6-question mini-quiz to assess student understanding of operations with complex numbers, as well as absolute value and simplifying powers of complex numbers. The bundle contains (1) practice quiz and (4) quiz versions.
