Algebra I Unit/Algebra II Intro Unit

Algebra I Unit/Algebra II Intro Unit


This unit was created as an introductory/review unit for Algebra II to allow for a review of main concepts needed to progress in Algebra II. However, it could also be used in Algebra I to introduce for the first time real numbers; number operations; and equations, expressions, and inequalities.


This synchronous unit is meant to be the first introductory/review unit of Algebra II and should take 12-15 school days. Parts of the unit could also be used in an Algebra I course as well.

Background for Teachers

To teach this lesson, you will need to know key vocabulary, formulas, and problem solving strategies taught in Algebra I regarding real numbers; number operations; and equations, expressions and inequalities. 


Step 1 - Goals and Outcomes


 Learning Intentions:Students will be able to define real numbers and their properties along with equations, expressions, and inequalities.

Success Criteria: Students will recognize real numbers and evaluate equations, expressions, and inequalities.


Step 2 - Planning Instruction


Student Prior Knowledge: Prior to this lesson, students will need to have experience in problem solving, modeling with equations/expressions, and be familiar with Google tools.

Strategies for diverse learners:The first piece of the unit is a review quiz on google forms that will allow them and you to assess initial skills. There are then two different options for the bulk of the content; a less in depth hyperdoc that can be completed independently or in groups, or a more in depth slideshow that can also be completed independently or in groups.


Step 3 - Instruction



Step 4 - Assessments

Assessment will be conducted throughout the entire unit, beginning with the initial review quiz, assignments, group presentations, questioning, self-assessment through polls, and observations.
