Kris Williamson, from the Newfield Central School District, has given us a great contribution heading into the homestretch in Common Core Algebra II. He essentially took the Unit Reviews that I created, sliced and diced them, and created videos of all the reviews. Kris is relatively new to the video world, but he’s done a really nice job. I’m going to let him explain it to you…
“Hello! I am using Kirk’s Algebra 2 Lessons in Newfield, and have created some unit review videos for my students. We are just beginning the probability unit and will end up having about 4-5 days of review after Statistics, so at Newfield we have been providing students with unit reviews this last month while they learn the last two units. A big thank you to Kirk for sharing his unit reviews!
I’m just getting used to creating my own videos, so they aren’t the best quality, but I’ve tried to hit upon the big points in each unit. I invite you to use them as you wish. I have been able to create videos for units 1-4 so far, and Kirk has graciously let me share them with you all. I hope that you find them helpful and useful these last few days before our June 1 Regents!
In my videos, I recap the lessons in the unit, share the Common Core Standards briefly, then I provide topical reviews, and lastly I sum up the unit by indicating all the important things students should be able to do from the unit. Unfortunately, school blocks YouTube, so I have been using zaption.com to share them with my students. Feel free to use them as you wish!
Unit 1: Algebraic Essentials
Unit 2: Functions as the Cornerstones of Algebra
Unit 3: Linear Functions and Their Algebra
Unit 4: Exponential and Logarithmic Functions Video 1/2
Unit 5: Exponential and Logarithmic Functions Video 2/2
These are just the first five units. Kris will be sharing the others as he makes them. He also contributed the blank slides that go with the videos. Here are those as well (but only for the first four units – still need #5). Thanks Kris!!!!
