Thank you so much for visiting our website! We are in the middle of a site redesign which is now available for you to view at http://curriculum.newvisions.org/math
You will still be able to access this website at this address until April 10th, at which point http://math.newvisions.org will redirect you to our new curriculum website. If you want to continue accessing this legacy website thereafter, you will be able to do so until June 30th of this year.
In this unit, students will study properties of rational and polynomial expressions as they appear in both functions and equations. They will also use solving polynomial equations of various forms to extend the number system into the Complex plane. Students will identify algebraic terms, write equivalent expressions in factored form, and use the zero product property to understand that all polynomials can be expressed as a product of factors added to a remainder. This allows us to arrive at the remainder theorem, to identify the zeroes of the polynomial, and to sketch its graph.
