Subject: Mathematics (9 - 12)
Title: Web 2.0 Mastering Polynomials Review
Description: This technology-based lesson plan is intended for 9th through 12th grade Algebra I students.  After covering the unit on polynomials, teachers could use this lesson plan as a review.  This could also be used in preparation for the Alabama High School Graduation Exam (AHSGE) with various math topics.  Adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing and factoring polynomials will be mastered through the use of online social networking tools, such as Diigo Bookmarking and Wikispaces.  Students will work independently and collaboratively helping each other to review polynomials (or another math unit), creating problems and posting them to a wiki, and completing the problems their peers created.
