Check out my Algebra 2 learning goals for this year here.
Link to download these pages will be at the bottom of the post, as usual.
This year, I taught factoring quadratics using the box method. My students (and I) seem to appreciate the visual nature of this approach.
Inside of factoring quadratics foldable:
And, we used the boxes to divide polynomials. This is the first year I feel like most of my students have had a firm grasp on dividing polynomials. I need to write a blog post explaining this process. I also need to come up with a way to make our notes show the process and not just the end result. That's one of my goals for this summer!
(I've blogged about all of my radicals stuff before here and here.)
