Functions & Interval Notation Resources

A few months ago, I accepted a position as an Integrated I Math teacher at Oak Hills High School. Integrated I is a semi-new course to our district. It’s also a course that I have never taught which means I have very little resources for it. While this might sound intimidating, it is actually one of my favorite parts of my new position. I get to start completely from scratch. I have the opportunity build and create new curriculum, activities and projects for my students.

Below, I am sharing all of my resources for our current unit on Functions and Interval Notation. We actually covered functions in our previous module, as well, but I only taught a couple of those concepts since I came in midyear.

As you look through the resources below, you will see that it contains the following resources:

  • Introduction Lessons
    • These lessons are used to introduce the topic as a “mini” lesson. Students are not always required to take notes until their flipped lesson for homework. This way, students are taught the material twice in one day.
  • Flipped Classroom Presentation, Video & Foldable
    • I attempt to give very little homework in my classroom. Therefore, the main homework assignment for my students is to complete their formal notes at home.
  • Collaborative Tasks
    • These are tasks that students are given to deepen their knowledge of the material. They are required to work together to break down information or solve tasks.
  • Misc Activities
    • There are multiple other activities, such as BreakoutEDU and Desmos, to engage learners in a more hands-on interactive way.
  • Skills Practice
    • Students do need to practice skills but, if they do, it’s important that they receive immediate feedback and have the opportunity to improve. With Google Forms, students submit their responses to improve their grades.

  1. Dear Meagan,
    Thank you so much for sharing these amazing resources. While they may not all completely be what I cover in my own classroom, it is always helpful to see how and what other teachers are doing in their own rooms to excite and engage their students. I can’t wait to apply some of these ideas and methods into my own classroom.
    Thank you so much for the inspiration!
    Sincerely,
    Jamie
