Julie at I Speak Math has been kind enough to organize a group of algebra 2 teachers on twitter. You are welcome to join us by posting to the hashtag and blogging once per month or so about your algebra 2 class. It was recommended that our first post consist of our scope and sequence so that we can determine which teachers might be teaching similar topics at the same time. Hopefully this will aide in collaboration. I am using standards based grading. I number my objects as #.# The first number is the unit number and the second number is the objective number within that unit. The first year I did this, I just numbered from about 1 to 130. It made making changes to the list more difficult. Now when I need to add or subtract a topic, I don't need to renumber all of the objectives, just the ones in the same unit.

Here is my list. Notice the complete absence of probability, data analysis and matrices :( I do need help with applications and projects. I have projects for chapters 3, 7, and 10, but nothing else. I really want to find ways to make this stuff applicable. If you have anything, please share.
