Students create a booklet about the attributes of the parent functions ... a graph, the domain, range, key points, asymptotes, etc. Students practice domain and range - written as inequalities, set notation, and interval notation. They also practice finding the value of a function f(x), f(4), etc. We introduce transformations by moving a "monster" ... moving point by point.<br /><br />After that unit we go through each function with much more depth.Algebra's Friendhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04729315514507170702noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8399389267815059112.post-20313304708533868902016-08-01T20:27:48.381-05:002016-08-01T20:27:48.381-05:00What does your first topic "8 functions: lin...What does your first topic "8 functions: linear, absolute value, quadratic, cubic, square root, exponential, logarithmic, rational" look like? I see that you go into more detail of these functions later in the year.abeljehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/12605330593196753537noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8399389267815059112.post-71354682247476817252016-08-01T13:41:51.085-05:002016-08-01T13:41:51.085-05:00Start here: https://ispeakmath.org/2016/07/23/call...Start here: https://ispeakmath.org/2016/07/23/calling-all-algebra-2-teachers-mtbos-alg2chat/<br /><br />Add yourself to the list.

Are there sites that you have found to be more beneficial for me. I am familiar with Kuta and Desmos. We were using PMI. Any info is appreciated.

Our PreCal teachers do all four conic sections.<br /><br />For parabolas we do the same as you ... vertex, directrix, and focus. This past year we combined the conics features (directrix and focus) in our unit on quadratics.Algebra's Friendhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04729315514507170702noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8399389267815059112.post-65000757643850056832016-08-01T09:36:27.617-05:002016-08-01T09:36:27.617-05:00How much do you go into conics?

For parabolas we write the equation after being given any two of the three: vertex, directrix, or focus, and then graph. We also convert from standard form to vertex form by completing the square, and we do the same for circles (except that's more of double completing the square). We also find the equation of a circle given endpoints of a diameter. Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
