Algebra II Module 1

Algebra II Module 1: Polynomial, Rational, and Radical Relationships

Students connect polynomial arithmetic to computations with whole numbers and integers.  Students learn that the arithmetic of rational expressions is governed by the same rules as the arithmetic of rational numbers.  This unit helps students see connections between solutions to polynomial equations, zeros of polynomials, and graphs of polynomial functions.  Polynomial equations are solved over the set of complex numbers, leading to a beginning understanding of the fundamental theorem of algebra.  Application and modeling problems connect multiple representations and include both real world and purely mathematical situations. 

The student materials consist of the student pages for each lesson in Module 1.   

The copy ready materials are a collection of the module assessments, lesson exit tickets and fluency exercises from the teacher materials.
