PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This HUGE (over 395 pages) Pre-Calculus bundle contains a scaffolded notes and interactive notebook activities for 14 units of study, perfect for Pre-Calculus students. There are over 145 scaffolded note activities that contain sample teacher answer keys. Example problems are solved on the sample teacher answer keys, but you can have your students use them over and over again with problems from your own curriculum. There are over 70 interactive notebook activities which include descriptions for use. We have not included specific examples for the interactive notebook activities. We like to give them to students for review so that they can show what they have learned and personalize their notes. You can personalize these for your learners. This bundle is perfect to use with any textbook or e-book curriculum and great for engaging all types of learners.

********* If you have purchased our Algebra 2 Bundle you already have a lot of the material contained in this packet. We have a separate small bundle of the Pre-Calculus items that are not included in the Algebra 2 Bundle so that you can purchase the additional notes for Pre-Calc that are not included in the Algebra 2 bundle.*********

This bundle also contains a description of how to use the materials included.
