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.

Hi Sarah - Love your foldable! I am teaching Algebra 2 for the first time - looking forward to sharing ideas. Our district has mapped out the topics ... Overview of Functions, Linear Functions/systems, Absolute Value, and Quadratics before the winter holiday. Then we pick up Square Root, Rational, Exponential and Logarithmic Functions ... and finish up with a unit on Conics. Sounds ambitious :) looking forward to the journey! Check out my reflection at http://algebrasfriend.blogspot.com/ or my daily progress at http://180snaps.blogspot.com/

ReplyDeleteThanks, Beth! I enjoy keeping up with both of your blogs!

DeleteThanks for all your help Sarah! I have hooked up with statteacher.blogspot and she also has some cool ideas. Just found out our school is real big into 'packets'. They copy and pass out the notes, worksheets, and homework all in one unit packet. I am really not used to this type of teaching and I am trying to figure out how to incorporate ISNs into that practice. However I am loving reading about your journey. Makes me feel I am not alone in my craziness.

ReplyDeleteHave you figured out how to incorporate ISNs with the packet culture? Just curious...

DeleteI can't ever find your files that's embedded below

ReplyDeleteHi Karen, do you have Shockwave/Flash installed on your computer? I think you have to have that installed in order to be able to view the embedded files.

DeleteYou can always send me an e-mail at mathequalslove (at) gmail (dot) com, and I will be happy to e-mail you the files.

Thanks for reading my blog!
