eMATH February 2022 Newsletter

Posted on

Happy February everyone. We have now (just) made it past mid-winter. Hopefully the groundhog does not know what he is talking about, and spring comes early. We’ve been busy creating more resources, including putting the finishing touches on our new N-Gen Math Algebra I course as well as starting to plan for our June YouTube Live Regents reviews for New York State high school students. We’ve missed doing the full series of reviews the past two years and are eager to get back to it. More details about the reviews to come in the coming months. February seems to be packed with learning opportunities. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to see some of the phenomenal mathematicians and scientists we have featured for black history month. This year we get a real treat with “Twosday” 2/22/22 which falls on a Tuesday. For now, here are the details of our new add-ons for the month.

Middle School Updates

In N-Gen Math 6 this month, we bring you the Unit 9 (Area) mid-unit quiz and exit tickets. For N-Gen Math 7, we have the Unit 7 and Unit 7cc, both on Statistics, mid-unit quizzes and exit tickets. If you’re confused about the “cc” units in our middle school courses, we wrote a blog post here that explains their purpose. In short, the CC units are aligned to Common Core instead of the Next Generation Learning Standards. Finally, in N-Gen Math 8, we bring you the Unit 8 (Pythagorean Theorem) exit tickets and mid-unit quiz.

High School Updates

For Common Core Algebra I this month, we bring you two resources for Unit 8 (Quadratic Functions and Their Algebra). First, we have the Unit 8 Mid-Unit Quiz Form C. We also have posted a practice set of problems on graphing parabolas.

In Common Core Geometry this month, we have the Unit 7 (Similarity and Dilations) Mid-Unit Quiz Form C and a Unit 7 practice sets of problems on altitude to hypotenuse problems.

For Common Core Algebra II, we have posted the Unit 10 (Polynomial and Rational Functions) Mid-Unit Quiz Form C and a Unit 10 practice set of problems on the Remainder Theorem.

Finally, in Algebra 2 with Trigonometry, we have posted the Unit 10 (Exponential and Logarithmic Functions) Mid-Unit Quiz Form C.

In Other News

As I mentioned earlier, we are in the final stages of creating our new N-Gen Math Algebra I course. We are excited about this update to our Common Core Algebra I course and hope to have sample workbooks available later in the spring. We will begin posting the new lessons this spring as well so schools can decide which Algebra course best fills their needs.

As indicated earlier, stay tuned for more information about our YouTube Live reveiws. These are specifically for Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II.

March will soon be with us and, with it, spring and warmer weather. If your school has a mid-winter break, we wish you a relaxing time off.
