I have the really old one from 2000-ish. It was stored away in a closet for several years before I dusted it off and purchased a new chord. I've been playing around with a free program entitled "Log Me In" where I…"
"Nice Lesson Craig! I really like the activity of converting between forms of quadratics because it really expands students understanding of symbolic algebraic manipulation.
Check out my "Open Algebra 1" textbook... In chapters 7…"

"I have used the 4 Sisters Race with my low-level Algebra 1 students and it went amazing. We had been studying slope-intercept form and how to write an equation to model the data. These students would constantly be off topic and it was difficult to…"

Great add on of the real word questions to the original document. I feel that when students make these extrapolations on their own without our "hand holding," truly impactful learning is taking place. I'm so…"
"This site is great. If you are looking for some trig ideas, be sure to view the GI Joe clip about "spherical trig." Clip uses 3D projection to show angles being labeled with Greek letters. Again, great site!"
