How It Works
You can use this algebra II course as a template for designing and implementing your course. Here are the key components of the course and how you can use them:
 Chapters  Each chapter covers a unit of algebra II, from the review of basic arithmetic to trigonometry. Use these chapters as mile markers as you map out your course. We recommend planning to spend a week on each chapter, but you can always allocate the chapters according to the length of your specific algebra II course.
 Lessons  Within each chapter are video lessons that further break down topics into bitesized chunks. These lessons cover single topics like inequalities. Each one is often appropriate for a single class.
 Key Terms  Within each lesson are key terms. These are emphasized on screen and in the transcript. As you develop your syllabus, these key terms help you focus on the most important learning objectives. For example, the lesson on conic sections includes key terms like ellipses, hyperbola and parabola.
Video Lessons
As you work on your algebra II lesson plans, save time by incorporating video lessons from this resource. Here's how:
 Introduce Topics  Your students will be in the right mindset for understanding topics like matrices and determinants if you begin class with a short video. It can be a jumpingoff point for a lecture, group activity or class discussion.
 Break Up Lectures  The video format, which often includes animation, helps students visualize topics like mean, median, mode and range.
 Assign For Homework  Each lesson in the course, from number lines to basic trig identities can be assigned to your students as homework.
Transcripts
Each video lesson includes a complete transcript. You can utilize these transcripts in several ways:
 Lecture Notes  Do you need a guide as you plan a lecture, such as one on sines and cosines? The transcripts cover each topic in depth, with key terms highlighted for quick reference.
 Student Reading  Perhaps you'd like your students to learn about regression analysis, but you don't have class time available. Assign the transcript as extra reading.
 Study Tools  When it's time for a unit exam on factoring, you can point your students to the transcripts on prime factorization, rational roots theorem and related topics to help them study.
Quizzes
Each video lesson has a corresponding quiz. Here's how to use the quizzes:
 Homework  Assign a quiz to your students as homework. You'll receive an email with the results, which enables you to verify they've completed the assignment and that they've understood the material. Questions cover everything from understanding quadratic equations to key facts, like the double angle formula.
 Tests  You can meld the material in the quizzes into your own student assessments, saving you valuable time. Need a few questions on combinatorics? There are plenty!
 Discussions  Jumpstart a discussion with questions like: What's a geometric sequence?
