Product Description
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 other words, these offerings are PROBLEM-BASED and not lesson-plan based. The difference is profound. I do not pretend to know how you should speak to your students and refuse to offer canned lesson plans--the material will serve as your own guide as well as for the students themselves. I DO INCLUDE a "READ ME FIRST" text file giving what has worked well for me.

The Algebra 2A course that I teach to at-risk secondary students has been significantly honed over several years. This is the 8th unit of the 1st semester course (or the 1st unit of Algebra 2B) that has proven to be valuable over this time-frame.

This unit concerns a STUDY OF POLYNOMIAL FUNCTIONS that includes significant GRAPHING exercises, SYNTHETIC DIVISION, REMAINDER, FACTOR and RATIONAL ZERO Theorems as well as WORD PROBLEMS. I cannot stress too greatly that you MUST have a love for this subject if you are to turn anyone around.

INCLUDED is a TEACHER's GUIDE of every teaching reference utilized by the enclosed problems as well as every (large) diagram needed by the problems. From this alone the unit can be thought through and designed. Also included is a SPECIAL RUN of level 1 (simplest) problems that basically provides you with a preview of each of the skills.

TEN skill areas are included--all from the Common Core's secondary domains. BUT, as I say, YOU WILL SEE THAT THE MAJORITY OF KIDS SIMPLY HAVE NOT UNDERSTOOD THIS STUFF if they happen to have been exposed to it at some prior point (such as Algebra 1B).

Admittedly, you need to come up with unique and interesting ways to approach this material. It is CRUCIAL to the students' grasp of mathematics--trust me. I, myself, have experimented with all kinds of approaches.

FIVE worksheets are provided: one with 5 problems per skill; one with 8 problems per skill; one with 10 per skill; one with 15 per skill and one with 20 per skill. You decide which is best for you.

SEVEN quizzes (all with 10 problems each) are provided: TWO at a level 2 (not too hard); TWO at a level 3 (harder); TWO that are a mix of level 2 and 3 problems (I personally use these a lot) and ONE that is a mix of level 3 and 4 (hardest) problems.

Look at the 4 snapshots and the PREVIEW. Together, they encapsulate the approach taken fairly well.

[The problems in All WORKSHEETS and PREVIEWS are printed in difficulty (1 [easy], 2 [not so easy], 3 [proficiency] up to 4 [mastery]) order within a skill. The actual difficulty level appears slightly to the left of the DK box of each problem in a very small font. Also, instructional references appear on worksheets but are optional on quizzes.]

RELATED ITEMS:
BUNDLES: The entire 1st semester course is posted here as: HS [Remedial] Algebra 2A FULL textbook-less course (BUNDLE).

The prior ALGEBRA 2A unit is UNIT 7: Factoring & Solving Quadratics.
The next ALGEBRA 2B unit is UNIT 2: Conic Sections.

The 2 semesters of Algebra 2 that I have had to concoct and hone over the last decade are the HS [Remedial] Algebra 2A Sampler: (textbook-less course) and the HS [Remedial] Algebra 2B Sampler: (textbook-less course).
