EMAT 6000 Fall 2009. Materials for Math 2.

For my semester project, I decided to collect and create a set of Math 2 Resources that can be used by anyone teaching a Math 2 class. I have organized my material by unit.

Unit 1 – Quadratics

1. Handout - Derivation of the formula used to find the vertex of a parabola written in standard form.

2. In-class group Activity – Jeopardy Game that reviews many of the topics and much of the vocabulary taught within this unit.

Unit 2 – Right Triangles

3. Handout – Understanding why similarity lies at the heart of right triangle trigonometry

Unit 3 – Circles & Spheres

4. Culminating Project – A four-part project that requires students to complete application problems for various topics in Units 1 - 3. Grading Rubric and project guidelines are included.
