Just in time for back-to-school: New distance learning resources are available on Wide Open School.
Virtual Nerd's Algebra 2 module includes a comprehensive set of videos that teach through the use of example problems. Whiteboards are used to illustrate the problems, as instructors talk them through one step at a time. More than 500 videos are organized by topic, which include Rational Functions, Conics, Probability and Statistics, and more. To find videos listed by Common Core standard, go to the Common Core menu and click High School: Algebra. Note: Videos here aren't grouped into Algebra 1 and 2, so you'll need to sort through the resources a bit.
Most videos include a learning objective, keywords, suggested background tutorial videos, videos for further exploration, and a worksheet that summarizes the content of the video. Introduce a classroom lesson by having kids view a video in small groups or in pairs. Then reuse the video during the lesson to reinforce content. Kids can use the accompanying worksheet as an independent study guide or as a place to take notes.Continue reading Show less

Arithmetic With Polynomials And Rational Expressions
Understand that polynomials form a system analogous to the integers, namely, they are closed under the operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication; add, subtract, and multiply polynomials.
Create equations in two or more variables to represent relationships between quantities; graph equations on coordinate axes with labels and scales.
Reasoning With Equations And Inequalities
Use the method of completing the square to transform any quadratic equation in x into an equation of the form (x – p)2 = q that has the same solutions. Derive the quadratic formula from this form.
Solve quadratic equations by inspection (e.g., for x2 = 49), taking square roots, completing the square, the quadratic formula and factoring, as appropriate to the initial form of the equation. Recognize when the quadratic formula gives complex solutions and write them as a ± bi for real numbers a and b.
Seeing Structure In Expressions
Choose and produce an equivalent form of an expression to reveal and explain properties of the quantity represented by the expression.
