Nothing like a good criminal investigation to liven up math class!
CSI: Algebra 2 / Pre-Calculus is a collection of nine different geometrically inspired mathematical puzzles with a little international pizazz. The nine puzzles intend to target specific Algebra 2 / Pre-Calculus units and add flair to the ordinary challenge question.
Save by buying the entire book! Each of the 9 projects is sold separately for $5. So at $25 you get almost a 50% discount!
Each puzzle has 6 “scenes” which will uncover a mystery variable. These six mystery variables will be used to decode a cryptic text message and if everything is correct, the result will match one of the six suspects.
In this product you will receive ALL NINE different puzzles. I have created these puzzles to map the curriculum to nine different chapters of most Algebra 2 / Pre-Calculus textbooks.
Unit 1: Matrices: Adding, Subtracting and Scalar Multiplication of Matrices, Multiplying Matrices, Determinants, Inverses & Solving Systems
Unit 2: Families of Functions: Evaluating Families of Functions, Properties of Function Families, Piecewise Functions, Modeling, Transformations, Odd & Even Functions
Unit 3: Radical Functions: Operations with Radicals. Solving Equations with Radicals, Complex Numbers & Conjugates
Unit 4: Polynomial Functions: Roots of Polynomials, Degrees, Limits & End Behavior, Synthetic Division, Local Maxima & Minima
Unit 5: Rational Functions: Multiplying and Dividing Rational Expressions, Solving Equations with Rational Functions, Simplifying Complex Fractions, Asymptotes & Graphing Rational Functions
Unit 6: Exponential & Logarithmic Functions: Evaluating Exponential and Logarithmic Functions, Switching between Exponentials to Logarithms, Growth & Decay, Log Laws & Compound Interest
Unit 7: Advanced Trigonometry: Evaluating Trigonometric Expressions, Trig Identities, Laws of Sines & Cosines, The Unit Circle, Amplitude, Period & Frequency
Unit 8: Conic Sections: Equations of Circles, Ellipses, Parabolas & Hyperbolas, Identifying Conic Sections & Graphing Conic Sections
Unit 9: Series: Arithmetic Sequences & Series, Geometric Sequences & Series, Recursive Sequences & Infinite Series
Each puzzle has an ANSWER KEY included.
