A Supplement for My

Algebra II Class

by: BJ Jackson

The purpose of this group of explanations, explorations, and assignments for my students is to use technology as a tool for better understanding of mathematical ideas. The graphs in these pages will be made in graphing calculator, but we will discuss what students need to do in order to make these graphs on there hand-held calculator.

The assignments will be in the same chronological order as they are studied during the course of the school year and will reference the corresponding section of the book.
