Q4W28 Algebra

TeacherCarol Barnes
Subject AreaAlgebra
Grade Level7th/8th
Week #Q4W28 March 21-25
Unit of InstructionPolynomials & Quadratics
Standard(s) Taught
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
    • factor quadratic expressions and functions

    • divide polynomials

    • factor polynomials with four terms

    • apply models for factoring and multiplying polynomials to rewrite expressions and functions

  • write a function to model a real-world context by composing functions and the information within the context.

  • explain process of composition – that is, explain that f(g(x)) takes an x value to its g output and then takes the g output to its f output.

    • divide polynomials using long division and apply the Remainder Theorem, when appropriate, to check the answer. (next week)

    • write a function that combines functions using arithmetic operations (addition, subtraction, and multiplication) and relate the result to the context of the problem.

    • interpret individual parts of a quadratic expression

Classroom Activities


Whole Group:  Print and take notes on Factoring Polynomials with four terms with this page:  Factoring Polynomials with four terms.   From home, watch the video of teacher going over the notes at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJGtPJL4KDM.     

Independent Work:  For a grade: HW9 Factoring 4 Term Polynomials .

Whole Group:  Print and take notes on Factoring Polynomials with Division (show remainder theorem) with this page: Dividing Polynomials by Binomial .   From home, watch the video of teacher going over the notes at this link: https://youtu.be/_ylUlFA-dxw   https://youtu.be/_ylUlFA-dxw

Independent Work:  HW12 Dividing Polynomials


Whole group:  Students watch Polynomial Remainder Theorem Video which shows how to divide polynomials with long division at this link:       https://www.khanacademy.org/math/algebra2/x2ec2f6f830c9fb89:poly-div/x2ec2f6f830c9fb89:remainder-theorem/v/polynomial-remainder-theorem

Independent: Students will work problem on Khan Academy after video.

Thursday/Friday:  This lesson has been moved to next week.

Notes on Introduction to Quadratic Functions: 

Whole Group:  Students create flip book on Quadratic Functions to use Interactive Student Notebook.  Here is link to Flip Book: Quadratic Functions Intro FlipBook then create foldable showing transformations of quadratic functions using vertex form using this link to print foldable: Transformations QuadraticFunctionsVertexFormFoldable-2

Independent:  Complete graphs showing major features of parabolas from quadratic equations in All Things Algebra.
