## Included Resources

This course map provides an overview of the structure of the Algebra II curriculum offered by New Visions for Public Schools.

Unit 0: This introductory unit to Algebra II provided by New Visions for Public Schools, helps to promote a growth mindset for students as they begin the Algebra II Course. The resources in this unit are intended to be used at the beginning of the school year to introduce students to the idea that anyone can learn mathematics and to provide instru...

Unit 1: The purpose of this unit, provided by New Visions for Public Schools, is to build on students' prior understanding of a function from Algebra I and develop a deeper understanding of how two quantities are related, how rates of change are compared, how functions are notated and described, and the ways we compare functions. Essential Questio...

Unit 2: The purpose of this unit, provided by New Visions for Public Schools, is to extend students' understanding of exponential numbers, properties, and functions, and their applications in the real world. Essential Questions: How do we measure change? How are different representations of numbers related? How are different representations of ...

Unit 3: In this unit, provided by New Visions for Public Schools, students develop a conceptual understanding of the repetition belonging to periodic functions and using this foundation for interpreting features of trigonometric functions including period, frequency, and amplitude. Essential Questions: What makes a function periodic? How are sine ...

Unit 4: In this unit, provided by New Visions for Public Schools, students will study properties of rational and polynomial expressions as they appear in both functions and equations. They will also use solving polynomial equations of various forms to extend the number system into the Complex Plane. Essential Questions: How do changes in the sym...

Unit 5: In this unit, provided by New Visions for Public Schools, the objective is to confront students with their misconceptions of how probability works and then extend their understanding of probability. Essential Questions: How can probabilities be used to analyze and make fair decisions? How likely are random events to occur?

Unit 6: This unit, provided by New Visions for Public Schools, contains three main ideas: interpreting data using measures of center and spread, modeling data using familiar functions, and making the connection between probability and statistics. Essential Questions: How do we compare different data sets? How do we determine if different quantiti...
