This year, I am writing my own Algebra 2 curriculum to meet the unique needs of the students at my school, and I am really focusing on doing a good job on the interactive notebook pages for Algebra 2.
Here are the first entries in our Algebra 2 Interactive Notebook:
|Algebra 2 Interactive Notebook Entry on Multiple Representations of Relations - NAGS|
Once students have an overview of functions, we will discuss each specific type of function in depth. I plan on progressing from linear functions to exponential functions to quadratic functions to radical functions to rational functions. Somewhere in there, I will need to throw in absolute value functions and logarithmic functions. Let's just say I have a lot of planning ahead of me.

NAGS is an acronym to remember the four different ways to represent a relation.
N - Numerically
A - Algebraically
G - Graphically
S - Sentence (Verbally)
Numerical representations include ordered pairs and a table. Graphical representations include a coordinate plane and mapping diagrams.
