Assignment Calendar: Algebra II 

Two lesson plans were created using the ASSURE model.
The second lesson plan submitted for this project deals primarily with one conic section called a parabola.
Students are to be given a review of the major parts and the relationships thereof of a standard parabola,
asked to graph several examples using a graphing calculator, and answer questions about this conic and
the graphing process. The teacher has created an assignment calendar to cover all the lessons, assignments,
and assessments for this unit on conic sections. This tool is posted on the teacher's website prior to
starting the first lesson of the unit, so that students (and their parents) have a clear idea of the
assignment schedule. It will also be printed and posted in the classroom for easy reference and
students, or the teacher, may choose to print it out for their own individual reference. The following is
an excerpt from this assignment calendar.
