Designed as a balanced approach to Algebra instruction, these materials provide a solid foundation in the fundamentals. They emphasize multiple representations of functions so students can describe functions algebraically, graphically, numerically and verbally. Visual learning strategies and easy-to-follow examples are combined with a carefully paced approach to the proof, as problems increase in difficulty. Outstanding PowerPoint class notes (also available as masters for overheads) support the detailed daily lesson plans. Written by James Wenk, Teacher of the Year in the Downey, California Unified School District and the District’s Math Mentor Teacher, the course is designed for new teachers, out-of-field teachers, or the instructor with many classroom preparations.
