Investigation Options for Algebra II

- THIS IS THE LAST ROUND OF INVESTIGATION FOR FALL 2017!

- THESE OPTIONS WILL BE CHANGING IN JANUARY 2018!  

Website Poster:

For this investigative option, students must design an informative math poster about a website that is relevant to current classroom topics.  This poster can be on a single sheet of standard printer paper, but should not be any smaller than that, and should not be created on notebook paper.  The minimum requirements for the poster are that it uses at least three colors, features at least one drawing or graphic, lists the website that is being featured, and displays at least two ways the website resource might be helpful to students studying the current Algebra II topic.  See Mr. Davis for more information and specifics.

Book Challenges:

Students may complete the "challenge problems" for current sections of the Algebra II textbook for investigative credit.  Although students are allowed to work on these problems in groups and with other sources of help, each individual student should turn in a copy of the solved problems.

CURRENT PROBLEMS (10/31 to 11/16):   Page 24 #61-62 & Page 317 #47-48

Calculus Demo:

Every two weeks, Mr. Davis will make Calculus materials available for advanced students.  They will be placed in the front of the classroom next to the regular Algebra II assignment.  In order to utilize the Calculus Demo for investigative credit, students are required to complete an independent study on the Calculus topics that pertain to the materials that are made available.  The goal is not necessarily to complete the materials, but instead to use them for practice towards an understanding of the topic for the two week period.

At the end of the two week period, Mr. Davis will individually conference with students choosing the Calculus Demo.  Understanding of the topic will be tested, and students who are able to display a basic understanding of the calculus will be checked off for investigative credit.  This check for understanding may take different forms depending on the topic, and may include vocabulary questions, a computational demo, and/or a discussion of how the materials relate to the real world.
