MA.912.A.10.3
Description
Decide whether a given statement is always, sometimes, or never true (statements involving
linear or quadratic expressions, equations, or inequalities rational or radical expressions or
logarithmic or exponential functions).
General notes:
1. SAT / PSAT review should occur throughout the year as appropriate.
2. All tests are cumulative. For each chapter after the first, assign important review problems and include similar ones on the test.
Research indicates that recall and retention will be enhanced.
3. As much as possible, make lessons relevant with real-world applications and examples. NCTM publications and websites are
excellent resources.
4. Use graphing calculators as a resource for exploration and enhancement. Students should master algebraic processes by hand first,
then on the calculator.
