This FULL SEMESTER COURSE (BUNDLE) is comprised of 7 units representative of over 60 topics from grade 5 to 10. They are IN THE SAME ORDER in which I teach Applied Math II at my charter school.
Also included are 12 FINAL EXAM formats of varying difficulty.
ALSO 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 each 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 units' skills.
The course was designed and created when it became obvious that many of my students could not solve word problems and were ill-prepared for their junior-level state testing that has come to be the all-important barometer determining whether or not students can graduate. This course is the result of a lot of experimentation and thought--which is still going on.
After reviewing and analyzing this course (and its precursor, Applied Math I) for purposes of placing it on the TpT website, I have to say that it sure is meant to inspire thought and, because of my emphasis on assigning difficulty levels to every problem, it can really be used as an instructional guide for just about any group of high school students.
[The problems in All UNIT WORKSHEETS and the PREVIEW 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.]
The units (in Applied Math II) are UNIT 1: PERCENT Problems
, UNIT 2: FORMULAS, FUNCTIONS & VARIATION
, UNIT 3: REAL WORLD PROBLEMS
, UNIT 4: TRANSFORMATIONS
, UNIT 5: PROBABILITY
, UNIT 6: WORK PROBLEMS
and, lastly, UNIT 7: AREA & VOLUME
