This unit includes PowerPoint presentations, coordinated guided notes with answers, 3 mid-unit quizzes, factoring by grouping worksheet, and unit test covering Quadratic Functions and Equations. The PowerPoint includes warm ups (do-now or bell ringer), key concepts, and examples for students to follow. It also includes a pacing guide with common core state standards and suggested homework and classwork assignments.
I created this to accompany the Prentice Hall Pearson Algebra 2 textbook. This unit covers Sections 4.1-4.2 and 4.4-4.8. The lessons are 30 - 45 minutes each.
