BTW, he uses Title: Algebra 2: An >Integrated Approach, Author: Larson, et al Publisher: Heath McDougal >Littell Hi Nyna, Upon Claudia's suggestion I did a search on the web and found the following lessons from that book online: LARSON ALGEBRA 2 CHAPTER 1, LESSON 6 http://www.classzone.com/larson2000/algebra2_demo/common/chapter1/pdfs/2_01_6 .pdf LARSON ALGEBRA 2 CHAPTER 1, LESSON 7 http://www.classzone.com/larson2000/algebra2_demo/common/chapter1/pdfs/2_01_7 .pdf I doubt that any of these lessons are what you're looking for but here they are anyway. For future, I suggest, you ask the Algebra II teacher for an extra copy of the textbook (to borrow) for your use. This way you don't have to rely on the student. -Roya Salehi, for the T2T service Thanks for visiting our on-line community. Visit Teacher2Teacher again at http://mathforum.org/t2t/
