Practice Algebra while building community and classroom decor! Included are 20 pennants for each of 4 topics. TOPICS INCLUDE: slope, solving equations (x on both sides), factoring quadratic trinomials (A=1) and domain and range. 160 pennants in all (80 with QR codes, 80 without), optional student answer sheets and answer keys.
(free Algebra 2 warm up template). I shine either an equation or a graph on the smart board. If I shine an equation, my students know to sketch the graph. If I shine a graph, my students know to find the equation. From there, students find the vertex, y-intercept, domain, range, zeros and equation (if a graph was given).
I plan to use these quick check sheets during our absolute value unit. I'll give each student a sheet (as a warm up) and shine an absolute value graph on the board. Students then have to find the vertex, intercepts, domain, range and maybe even the function. This will help cut down on how many warmups I need to make!
Challenge your students to apply their algebra skills in real world situations! Great way to practice problem solving and collaborative learning. Many applications to choose from for review or to introduce new concepts!
Free File Downloads (on the Math Giraffe blog) for Investigating Rational Functions - What makes an asymptote? In the first activity students figure out for themselves what features of the function cause vertical asymptotes versus holes. In the second, they determine what characteristics of a rational function cause horizontal versus slant asymptotes.
