Exponential Functions
 Helpful Hints Don't forget to compare and contrast Exponential Functions to Linear and Quadratic Functions. Include the information in graphs, tables, function form, and application.  Data and Transformations

Exponential Functions
 Representing Linear and Exponential Growth (You will need to calculate the rate of change from the simple interest percentage in order to put in linear form.)
Helpful Hints
Data and Transformations
 Representing Data with Box Plots (This is great when you combine it with Frequency Graphs.)
 Transforming 2D Figures
Quadratic Functions
 Teaching QuadraticsBe sure to teach quadratics graphically first with an application before you begin teaching algebraically. It will help make more sense of the factoring and solving.  Polynomial Functions

Quadratic Functions
 Representing Quadratics Functions Graphically
 Solving Quadratic Equations (only if you have completed the other one successfully)
Teaching Quadratics
Be sure to teach quadratics graphically first with an application before you begin teaching algebraically. It will help make more sense of the factoring and solving.
Polynomial Functions
 Representing Quadratics Functions Graphically (a MUST if you haven't done this already)
 Representing Polynomials Graphically
 Solving Quadratic Equations (only if you have completed the other two successfully)

Illustrative Mathematics
Are you looking for tasks that promote problem solving and rigor? Illustrative Mathematics is a free resource that contains a variety of tasks by standard. One nice feature of this website is that it has an Illustrative Mathematics "Commentary" that highlights the purpose of the task, various approaches that students may take in solving the task, and when to consider using the task within each unit.
Formative Assessment Strategies
Each month, the Math Department has highlighted a formative assessment strategy on the MOCC. These strategies come from Page Keeley and Cherly Rose Tobey's book, "Mathematics Formative Assessment: 75 Practical Strategies for Linking Assessment, Instruction, and Learning."
To support teachers, we have developed templates for some of the strategies provided within the book. Teachers can easily download the template, edit (if needed) and print!

Don't Forget!
 Each month the MOCC will add a new formative assessment strategy and eCLASS Technology Tool of the Month be sure to check it out each month!
 As mentioned on the MOCC, the common assessments have been taken down and we look forward to uploading new assessments in February. Thanks for your patience as we continue to revamp the MOCC to provide the best resources to you.
