Unit |

I think since we have so many people, we could do 2 units. One with systems of equations and one for probability. Since Probability is taught across the board and we can use a lot of technology for that type of unit, I think it would work very well. Reed, Angela, and I could work on it. | |||

That sounds good. Lets break up into teams. I want to work on the sytem of equations unit. | |||

Math Posts: 76 Location: PL Dunbar | I just wish I knew what all we need to do for the unit we are suppose to do. I don't mind breaking up into 2 groups. I don't mind working on the systems of equations either. That is very versitille for both Alg I and Alg II classes. | ||

Math Posts: 27 Location: PL Dunbar | I agree with Arnold. Two units from Dunbar sounds like a good idea. In a typical high school Probability core content is traditionally covered in an ALG 2 course. I've already been working on some flash acessories for a probability unit!! Young, Arnold, and I have been trying to work up some nice hands-on activities as well. | ||

Math Posts: 58 Location: PL Dunbar | Lubbe I think on a Unit we are going to need an overview of what we want to cover and how many blocks it would typically take. Then we are going to need a lesson plan for each day. The lesson plans will have all of the specifics included. We can use the Unit Mapper that we used this summer for our unit planning. The link is http://www.UnitMapper.com/um I don't know if everyone can log in or not. My login is just my fcps email address and then my last name...so try that. You can look around and see other units people have planned. Just an idea...a way to organize and then publish our unit to the web. Email Ms. Natalee if you can't get logged in. | ||

We need to break up the units into parts so that each person can work on a specific aspect of the unit. For the systems unit, we could have one person work on solving systems graphically, by substitution, by elimination, and a section on applications of systems of equation. We could also maybe do a lesson on using a graphing utility to solve sytems of equations. | |||

Math Posts: 41 Location: PL Dunbar | I'm not real good introducing how to use the graphing calculators, so I will volunteer to either work on graphing, elimination, or substitution. My first choice would be substitution, but I will do any of them. Do you think we need to decide this before we meet in January, or is this something we can do then? | ||

Math Posts: 76 Location: PL Dunbar | I use the graphing with algebra II so I could do that, also it goes with the cars thing from Discovering algebra. | ||
