## Tuesday, November 12, 2013 - Solving Numeric Expressions Using the Order of Operations

**(1) Equivalent Rationals Set A-D, (2) Percent Problems p.392 #1-18, (3) Bell Work 11/4 to 11/7.**

__Graded work returned:__**Bell Work**- Review the order of operations and practice explaining how to solve expressions by copying all parts of Examples 1-3 on p.22-23 of the Holt Textbook. Then, evaluate expressions #5 and #6 on p.24 and explain each step taken.

After Bell Work, we reviewed the value of numbers with exponents using "Exponents" problems

*a*through*z.*Each problem was reviewed and completed as a class. Finish the puzzle at the bottom for homework. Then, students evaluated expressions using "River Rapids" problems 1-18. Work should be done on a separate sheet of paper and completed for homework. 2013.11.12_exponents.pdf | |

## Friday, November 15, 2013 - Algebraic Expressions

**No Bell Work - Turn in Bell Work for 11/12 to 11/14**

Homework was checked for completion while students worked in groups to solve algebraic expressions. 3rd and 6th period worked on "Order of Operations." 4th and 5th period worked on "Did You Hear About..." A progress grade was taken - work was graded for accuracy. Students who did not finish or have corrections to make should do this by Tuesday, November 19th. Grades for this assignment will be adjusted if student makes gains by Tuesday.

After working in groups to solve algebraic expressions, all students individually completed "Order of Operations Task 1." Work will be graded for accuracy. This task will be posted next week.

**Extra Credit:**

"Puzzle: Calc-Words" - using order of operations to evaluate algebraic expressions. Due after Thanksgiving, Friday, December 6th.

Don't forget about "Rational Pictures." Due Friday, November 22, 2013.
