Get a complete, ready-to-print unit covering topics from the Algebra 2 TEKS including square root, cube root, and cubic function transformations; solving radical equations; solving equations with rational exponents; find and graph the inverse of quadratic/square root and cubic/cube root functions.


This unit extends students' knowledge of function transformations to square root functions y = (x), cubic functions y = x³. and cube root functions y = ∛(x). Students will write equations of transformed functions and describe transformations including vertical stretch and compression, horizontal stretch and compression, vertical and horizontal translation, and reflection about the x-axis and y-axis.

This unit also introduces solving radical equations, including square root equations, cube root equations, and equations involving rational exponents. Students will identify extraneous solutions of square root functions.

Finally, students will build on their knowledge of inverse functions by finding and graphing the inverse of cubic, cube root, quadratic, and square root functions including domain restrictions when necessary.

These no-prep resources include 7 lessons with guided notes, an exit ticket, a next-day warm-up, and 2 extra practice assignments per lesson.  The unit also includes mid-unit and end-of-unit reviews, mid-unit and end-of-unit editable assessments, and concept organizers. Increase student engagement with 10 TEKS-aligned activities!


TEACHERS LOVE the worked-out keys included with the lessons notes. Feel confident delivering instruction on these sometimes tricky topics! It is a major time-saver if you don’t have quite enough time to create your own guided notes key for the day.

STUDENTS LOVE the reduced note-taking burden with the guided notes handouts. Fill-in-the-blank vocabulary improves the accuracy of students’ notes and frees up more time for showing mathematical steps. 

TEACHERS LOVE the multiple versions of each practice worksheet, review, and assessment and they take full advantage of the EDITABLE versions of the mid-unit assessment form and unit test.

STUDENTS LOVE the complementary concept organizers that help them organize concepts and procedures.  

TEACHERS LOVE the pre-made exit tickets and next-day warm-ups that support skills from every lesson in the unit. Print 4-per-page or project on the board and record answers on scratch paper.

STUDENTS LOVE the variety of fun and engaging activities!  


Most resources are in non-editable PDF format.

  • Editable versions of the mid-unit assessment and test are also included in .docx format for MS Word.
  • 5 digital activities compatible with Google Slides and Google Classroom™ are included. (Printable versions of the digital activities are included in PDF format.)

  • Practice A and Practice B are suitable for use as in-class practice and homework. Two comparable forms are included for increased versatility.
  • The Exit Ticket is designed for a quick concept check at the end of the class period.
  • The Warm-Up is designed for next-day use to reinforce the previous day’s learning.
  • One-page display versions of the exit ticket and warm-up are included. Display the PDF page on a screen for student viewing and have students record their responses on notebook paper or scratch paper to save on printing.


  • 3 Concept Organizers offer a complementary alternative for note-taking or post-lesson concept reinforcement.
  • The Mid-Unit Review (Forms A and B) provides an opportunity for students to practice the concepts they learned in the first part of the unit.
  • The Mid-Unit Assessment (Forms A and B) may be used as a test, quiz, or daily assignment to meet the specific needs of your students. Editable versions of Forms A and B are included as a .docx file for MS Word.
  • The Unit Review (Forms A and B) helps students focus on the key concepts studied throughout the unit.
  • The Unit Test (Forms A, B, and C) comes in two comparable multiple-choice forms (A and B) and one free-response form (C). The test key includes TEKS alignment for each question to facilitate easy data analysis. Editable versions of Forms A and B are included as a .docx file for MS Word.

Supports Algebra 2 Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)

Standards: 2A.2B, 2A.2C, 2A.2D, 2A.4C, 2A.4F, 2A.4G, 2A.6A, 2A.6B, 2A.7H

A note from Allison at Math Beach Solutions about standards alignment: This resource was designed from the ground up to provide ready-made resources for Texas teachers to implement to facilitate their students’ mastery of the Algebra 2 TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills TAC §111.40). A considerable effort has been made to ensure the TEKS are addressed thoroughly, but these resources will reflect my understanding of the TEKS. As always, continue to use your professional judgment and experience when lesson planning.

Solve simple rational and radical equations in one variable, and give examples showing how extraneous solutions may arise.
Explain why the 𝘹-coordinates of the points where the graphs of the equations 𝘺 = 𝘧(𝘹) and 𝘺 = 𝑔(𝘹) intersect are the solutions of the equation 𝘧(𝘹) = 𝑔(𝘹); find the solutions approximately, e.g., using technology to graph the functions, make tables of values, or find successive approximations. Include cases where 𝘧(𝘹) and/or 𝑔(𝘹) are linear, polynomial, rational, absolute value, exponential, and logarithmic functions.
Identify the effect on the graph of replacing 𝘧(𝘹) by 𝘧(𝘹) + 𝘬, 𝘬 𝘧(𝘹), 𝘧(𝘬𝘹), and 𝘧(𝘹 + 𝘬) for specific values of 𝘬 (both positive and negative); find the value of 𝘬 given the graphs. Experiment with cases and illustrate an explanation of the effects on the graph using technology.
Find inverse functions.
Solve an equation of the form 𝘧(𝘹) = 𝘤 for a simple function 𝘧 that has an inverse and write an expression for the inverse. For example, 𝘧(𝘹) =2 𝘹³ or 𝘧(𝘹) = (𝘹+1)/(𝘹–1) for 𝘹 ≠ 1.
