eMath October 2019 Newsletter

Posted on

October has rolled around with beautiful colors and cold nights everywhere in upstate New York. We’ve been working hard to create add-ons, middle school curricula, and new videos. We’ve also been getting great feedback on both our add-ons this year and the trial version of the middle school curricula. We will have more on that feedback in a later post. For now, let’s get into the latest round of add-ons.

For Common Core Algebra I Add-Ons we have three new resources to share. First, we created a table of contents of QR codes for our videos. This would be a fun insert for kids in their binders so that they can scan a QR code for a given lesson at any point to be taken to that video. We’ve placed this resource at the end of the add-on list. We also bring you the Unit 3 (Functions) Form D Assessment. Finally we’ve also published the Exit Tickets for Unit 4 (Linear Functions and Arithmetic Sequences). I’m hopeful that we are caught up on Exit Tickets enough that we are staying ahead of where teachers are in the curriculum.

In Common Core Geometry Add-Ons this month we have a similar slate of resources. We’ve created the YouTube QR Code list and placed it at the end of the add-on list. As well we have the Unit 3 (Euclidean Proof) Exit Tickets and Form C Assessment. You can never have too many tests with geometry proof to choose from. We hope you like the latest installment.

Common Core Algebra II Add-Ons also include the YouTube Video QR Code List (again located at the end of the add-ons). We then bring you the Unit 3 (Linear Functions) Form D Assessment. Finally, we also have published the Unit 4 (Exponential and Logarithmic Functions) Exit Tickets as well. This was a long unit with lots of lesson, so there are many exit tickets that go along with it.

In Algebra 2 with Trigonometry Add-Ons, we don’t have a QR Code list for you because there are no videos for this course (in case you were wondering). What we do have is a new lesson, a new assessment, and a new round of exit tickets. First, we bring you Unit 3 – Lesson 14.5 – The Vertex Form of a Parabola. This new lesson in Algebra 2 with Trig emphasizes writing the equation of a parabola in vertex form if its vertex and one other point is known. We also offer the Unit 3 (Quadratic Functions) Form C Assessment. Finally, we bring you the Unit 4 (Radicals and the Quadratic Formula) Exit Tickets.

In other news, we’ve just started to record and upload videos for our middle school series. The first unit of N-Gen Math™ 6 is up on our site. We hope to add many more this month. Watch for them to start going up for the first few units of each course. Speaking of videos, it’s time to get back to recording those. Have a great rest of your October!
