Writing Expressions to Model Patterns (Table/Pictorial → Symbolic)

Given a pictorial or tabular representation of a pattern and the value of several of their terms, the student will write a formula for the nth term of a sequences.

###
Quadratics: Connecting Roots, Zeros, and x-Intercepts

Given a quadratic equation, the student will make connections among the solutions (roots) of the quadratic equation, the zeros of their related functions, and the horizontal intercepts (*x*-intercepts) of the graph of the function.

You will be able to evaluate the diction in a text and discover the author's tone.

###
Close Reading of Prose: Practice 1 (English I Reading)

You will read carefully in order to identify diction, tone, and irony and evaluate their impact on the meaning of a text.

###
Formulating Systems of Equations (Verbal → Symbolic)

Given verbal descriptions of situations involving systems of linear equations the student will analyze the situations and formulate systems of equations in two unknowns to solve problems.

###
Solving Quadratic Equations Using Graphs

Given a quadratic equation, the student will use graphical methods to solve the equation.
