 Secondary Mathematics II

Strand: ALGEBRA - Creating Equations (A.CED)

Create equations that describe numbers or relationships. Extend work on linear and exponential equations to quadratic equations (Standards A.CED.1�2, 4).
• ALGEBRA - Creating Equations (A.CED) - Sec Math II Core Guide
The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) and educators around the state of Utah developed these guides for the Secondary Mathematics II - Creating Equations (A.CED).
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.
• Applications of Quadratic Functions video
This video introduces and explains the topic.
This task provides a simple but interesting and realistic context in which students are led to set up a rational equation (and a rational inequality) in one variable, and then solve that equation/inequality for an unknown variable.
• Equations of Circles 1
This lesson unit is intended to help educators assess how well students are able to use the Pythagorean theorem to derive the equation of a circle, as well as translate between the geometric features of circles and their equations.

• Inscribing and Circumscribing Right Triangles
This lesson unit is intended to help educators assess how well students are able to use geometric properties to solve problems.
• 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.
• Module 1: Quadratic Functions - Teacher 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.
• Module 3: Solving Quadratics & Other Equations - Student Edition (Math 2)
The Mathematics Vision Project, Secondary Math Two Module 3, Solving Quadratics & Other Equations. The idea that different quadratic forms are useful in graphing is extended in Module 3, Solving Quadratic and Other Equations, when students use different forms of quadratic equations to find the roots or solve quadratic equations of a single variable.
• Module 3: Solving Quadratics & Other Equations - Teacher Edition (Math 2)
The Mathematics Vision Project, Secondary Math Two Module 3, Solving Quadratics & Other Equations. The idea that different quadratic forms are useful in graphing is extended in Module 3, Solving Quadratic and Other Equations, when students use different forms of quadratic equations to find the roots or solve quadratic equations of a single variable.
• Non-linear Functions video
This video introduces non-linear functions.
• Optimization Problems: Boomerangs
This lesson unit is intended to help educators assess how well students are able to interpret a situation and represent the constraints and variables mathematically, select appropriate mathematical methods to use, explore the effects of systematically varying the constraints, and interpret and evaluate the data generated and identify the optimum case, checking it for confirmation.
