The sampler is comprised of 138 problems representative of 69 topics from grade 4 to HS. They are IN THE SAME ORDER in which I teach Applied Math II at my charter school. 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 (actually, though, the problems shown are just about 7% of the problems that are actually available for the course).
As of 2/28/14 I have made the following revisions to this product:
1. the addition of a moderate difficulty assessment (level 2) with answer key
2. the addition of a less moderate difficulty assessment (level 3) with answer key
THE IDEA BEHIND THE ASSESSMENTS IS THAT IF YOUR HS STUDENTS CANNOT PASS EITHER ONE THEN, MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, THEY COULD BENEFIT FROM THIS ENTIRE COURSE.
The preview is confined to grade-level 9-12 problems.
[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.]
NOTE: every pair of problems is preceded by the Common Core Standard code (in green) that is applicable.
NOTE also: this course focuses on many different mathematical areas including functions, graphing, transformations and word problems.
NOTE also: Depending on requests, I can offer worksheets for individual standards, skills within standards, full units that you determine--along with 1 or 2 unit quizzes, or full courses comprised of unit worksheets, quizzes and an optional final exam.
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
All 7 are included in the FULL COURSE: HS [Remedial] Applied Math II FULL textbook-less course (BUNDLE)
