Secondary Mathematics II

Strand: ALGEBRA - Seeing Structure in Expression (A.SSE)

Interpret the structure of expressions (Standards A.SSE.1–2). Write expressions in equivalent forms to solve problems, balancing conceptual understanding and procedural fluency in work with equivalent expressions (Standard A.SSE.3).

Standard A.SSE.1

Interpret quadratic and exponential expressions that represent a quantity in terms of its context.

• Adding and Subtracting Polynomials
This collection of resources to teach graphing equations in slope intercept form includes warm-up exercises, a video presentation explaining the topic, practice exercises, worked examples, practice problems, and a review.
• Adding and Subtracting Polynomials video
This video introduces and explains the topic.
• Animal Populations
This Illustrative Mathematics task students have to interpret expressions involving two variables in the context of a real world situation.
• Introduction to the Materials (Math 2)
Introduction to the Materials in the Mathematics Two of the The MVP classroom experience begins by confronting students with an engaging task and then invites them to grapple with solving it. As students ideas emerge, take form, and are shared, the teacher orchestrates the student discussions and explorations towards a focused mathematical goal. As conjectures are made and explored, they evolve into mathematical concepts that the community of learners begins to embrace as effective strategies for analyzing and solving problems.
• Module 1: Quadratic Functions - Student Edition (Math 2)
The Mathematics Vision Project, Secondary Math Two Module 1, Quadratic Functions, picks up where students left off with linear and exponential functions, using the same types of diagrams and representations to introduce quadratic functions. The entire module focuses on the features of quadratic functions, comparing quadratics to other functions, and representing quadratic functions.
