Discovering Advanced Algebra An Investigative Approach
Discovering Advanced Algebra helps all learners develop a strong conceptual understanding of Algebra 2. This text uses data analysis to model pure-algebra concepts, derive equations, solve problems, and build skills—all using an investigative approach to learning.
The Discovering Advanced Algebra approach improves learning in many ways:
Real data, real-life situations, and real-world applications will help you motivate students and show them the importance of what they are learning.
The sequence of mathematical experiences aids your students in making conceptual connections between the many topics covered in Algebra 2.
Your students will develop and practice skills, such as multiplying and factoring polynomials and solving many kinds of equations in a wide variety of mathematical settings.
The text also provides regular opportunities for students to practice and review skills learned in previous algebra courses.
Investigations, visual representations, and opportunities for discussion will enable you to integrate multiple teaching modes into your classroom so that visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners all benefit.
To help you reach all your students, every lesson has a Differentiating Instruction box with suggestions for modifying the lessons for ELL students, students who need extra support, and advanced students.
You can be certain that this diverse approach to teaching will also strengthen students’ understanding and retention of advanced algebra concepts and skills.
