Standards and Resources

Common Core Learning Standards Addressed:
CCSS.Math.Content.HSA-APR.A.1 Understand that polynomials form a system analogous to the integers, namely, they are
closed under the operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication; add, subtract, and multiply polynomials.
CCSS.Math.Content.HSA-REI.A.2 Solve simple rational and radical equations in one variable, and give examples showing
how extraneous solutions may arise.
CCSS.Math.Content.HSA-REI.B.4 Solve quadratic equations in one variable.
CCSS.Math.Content.HSA-REI.B.4a Use the method of completing the square to transform any quadratic equation in x into an
equation of the form (x p)2 = q that has the same solutions. Derive the quadratic formula from this form.
CCSS.Math.Content.HSF-IF.B.6 Calculate and interpret the average rate of change of a function (presented symbolically or as
a table) over a specified interval. Estimate the rate of change from a graph.
CCSS.Math.Content.HSA-SSE.A.2 Use the structure of an expression to identify ways to rewrite it.
CCSS.Math.Content.HSA-CED.A.2 Create equations in two or more variables to represent relationships between quantities;
graph equations on coordinate axes with labels and scales.
CCSS.Math.Content.HSA-APR.B.3 Identify zeros of polynomials when suitable factorizations are available, and use the zeros
to construct a rough graph of the function defined by the polynomial.

All assessments will be available in modified versions. In addition, exit tickets will be used to group students based on content

skills and knowledge.

Any student receiving a 1 on a daily exit ticket will be assigned mandatory office hours the following day.
After the quiz, all students will be required to correct incorrect problems from their quiz. Students will have the opportunity to
retake the quiz after completing the quiz correction.
aligned to identified learning outcomes
Formative Assessments:
Do Nows
Daily Exit Tickets will be used to assess student understanding of topics covered that day in class. The teacher will give
an exit ticket feedback score of 3, 2, or 1. Three meaning the student mastered the topic from class that day. Two
meaning student shows some basic understanding of the topic, but has a minor misconception. A one meaning the
student has many misconceptions around the topic and should be targeted for additional support and remediation. Exit
tickets will be returned each day for student feedback and reviewed after the do now in some cases.
Learning Outcomes Quiz (every other week)
Summative Assessment:
Unit 6 Exam (differentiated for student learning needs)
