This is Red Ribbon week! Have your students show support of this week by dressing up each day. Please see the schedule on the previous post from the week of October 21st.
Day 1 – Students will have their assessment over the Unit 2 concepts that we’ve discussed and practiced. Please make sure that your child completes his/her study guide and visits the “In-Class” tab to check it or get clarification. Periods 4, 5, and 1 will test on Monday. Periods 2 and 3 will test on Tuesday. Students will not have calculators available for the test.
Day 2 – Students will start Unit 3 (Expressions). Below is a simplified checklist of what students are expected to learn in this unit:
What Will I Need to Learn?? Mark a check next to each concept as you master them.
________ To evaluate expressions, including with variables and exponents
________ Translate words to expressions _______ Use the Order of Operations
________ Identify parts of expressions _______ Use the distributive property
________ Use substitution to evaluate formulas _______ Identify equivalent expressions
We will start with students being re-introduced to what exponents are and how they work. Student will watch a couple of videos and practice using exponents on this day.
Day 3 – Students will learn how to use the Order of Operations to help them evaluate expressions. Students learned this in 5th grade and should remember this important algebraic skill.
