October 1st, 2010

*Today, we took the vocabulary quiz and summarized lessons of the week with some visual aids.
(Tim and Moby clips on associative, distributive, and commutative properties)

 The students went over a graded sheet on distributive property and asked any questions they needed to in order to understand the problems they missed.  We worked on distributive property problem sheet 1-4.  We also talked about "order of operations".  (Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally)

**Homework is to make sure you have completed Distributive handout 1-4, plus any corrections on handout 1-7.  There are a handful of students who have not turned in investigation 3.3 and 4.3.  Those were done in class earlier this week.  For those that didn't finish, you had an extra day to turn it in.

*Look Ahead:  

The students will continue to review the properties and combining "like terms" on Monday.  We will also look at some more translation problems.  Many students remember translation from last year.  There will be a study guide for the final given on Monday.  They can take it home to study for the final on Tuesday.  We will go over the answers.

*What's Next?

After the final Tuesday, they will have a culminating activity that comprises of a group poster project.  They will have time to work on this in class Wednesday and Thursday.  It counts as a test grade.
