## Tuesday, November 11, 2014 - RP.3d - I can convert measurements in the customary and metric systems using proportional reasoning.

**Bell Work**- Preview expressions.

**Classwork**

(1) Add "Measurement Facts" to foldables notebook and a pocket.

(3) Use a metric ruler to measure given lines for #1-5. Look at what happens with the decimal point. When converting from millimeters to centimeters, the decimal point moves to the left one place. This is because the relationship for centimeters to millimeters is 1 to 10. This means, for every 10 millimeters, there is 1 centimeter. 15 mm is equal to 1.5 cm. 20 mm equals 2 cm.

This movement is consistent with the acronym "Kangaroos Hopping Down Mountains Drinking Chocolate Milk." To convert measurements in the metric system use your understanding of the base ten system and how the decimal moves within the acronym.

**Homework**- Finish Activity 15 and Measuring with Metrics.

## Wednesday, November 12, 2014 - EE.1 - I can solve numeric expressions using the order of operations.

**Bell Work**- Review the order of operations and how to evaluate and write expressions.

**Classwork**

(1) Yesterday's classwork/homework, Activity 15 and Measuring with Metrics, were checked for completion.

(2) Create an order of operations foldable and a pocket in the notebook.

(3) Complete "Order of Operations Task 1." Analyze the errors being made. Correctly simplify the expression. Manipulate the expression to create a new solution.

**Homework**- Complete either "

**River Rapids**"

__"__

**or****Order of Operations - Puzzle A and B**."

## Thursday, November 13, 2014 - EE.2 - I can solve algebraic expressions given the value of the variables.

**Bell Work**

**Classwork**

(1) Questions answered and common mistakes addressed from last night's homework - River Rapids or Order of Operations Puzzles A and B.

(2) Guided practice on solving algebraic expressions - using the order of operations and the substitution property.

(3) In cooperative groups, students chose to solve algebraic expressions with either one variable or two variables, "Did You Hear About?" and "Order of Operations Practice" respectively. Students will finish this work tomorrow in class.

**Homework**: Complete the other task from homework given yesterday: "

**River Rapids**"

__"__

**or****Order of Operations - Puzzle A and B**." Don't forget about the assignment from last Friday which is also due tomorrow, "

**Basic Operations with Decimals - answer find and shade**." Please include organized work.

## Friday, November 14, 2014 - EE.2 - I can solve algebraic expressions given the value of the variables.

Bell Work - Two assignments turned in at the beginning of class: (1)

**Basic Operations with Decimals**(answer find and shade) assigned Friday, 11/07/14, and (2) River Rapids/Order of Operations Puzzles A and B, assigned Wednesday, 11/12/13. Organized work was stapled or included on task sheet.**Classwork**

(1) Finish solving algebraic expressions in group: one variable - "Did You Hear About?" or two variables - "Order of Operations Practice". Puzzle strips were provided to allow students to check their solutions and assess their progress. Organized work was turned in and will be graded for accuracy.

(2) Create a foldable to summarize variables and expressions and to launch upcoming lesson on equivalent expressions. 3rd and 4th period did not complete this task and will do so next week.

**Homework**: None! Enjoy your weekend!
