## Monday, November 19, 2013 - Translating Numeric and Algebraic Expressions

**Bell Work: Create table from p.59 of Holt Textbook**

**Classwork: Complete #1-35 (odd numbered problems only) on p.60.**Check your answers in the back of the book, p.775-776.

## Tuesday, November 19, 2013 - Translate Algebraic Expressions

**Bell Work: Complete problems 41, 42, 46, 48 and 49 on p.61 of the Holt textbook.**

**Classwork: Complete the front of "Writing Expressions." Finish for homework.**To translate, identify the operations needed by circling them, then underline the expressions. This will help you set up parts of the expression. When writing phrases, think of the order of operations used to simplify the expression. This will help you group the expressions to be translated.

Possible translations are posted below. There are certainly more ways to translate each expression, which we will share tomorrow in class!

## Wednesday, November 21, 2013 - Translate Algebraic Expressions

**Bell Work: Complete the back of "Writing Expressions,"**received yesterday. Front was checked for completion.

After Bell Work, translations for "Writing Expressions" were shared and discussed. When an expression involves multiple steps, use the order of operations to break the expression down into smaller expressions. Group terms that share an operation and would be simplified together. Then, use vocabulary such as sum, difference, product, and quotient to show these groups of terms forming expressions within the original expression. Possible translations are posted below, but there are certainly more variations that will work. After writing a verbal phrase, think about whether or not the phrase can be interpreted to represent a different expression. If so, use different vocabulary from the table you created on Monday (p.59 Holt Textbook) and the table from "Writing Expressions" to help you keep terms together.

## Thursday, November 21, 2013 - Solve Numeric and Algebraic Expressions, Translate Expressions

**No Bell Work. Students began working on their study guide for Unit 3 Test A, which is scheduled for tomorrow.**

__Writing Expressions Practice__was checked for completion and later discussed.

__Order of Operations Task 1__was returned and also discussed to prepare for the test.

Don't forget about extra credit due tomorrow -

__Rational Pictures__.

**Homework**- Complete any unfinished/missing work from the past week, especially

__(4th and 5th period) and__

**"Did You Hear About..."**__(3rd and 6th period).__

## Friday, November 22, 2013 - Unit 3 Test A

Students were tested over their knowledge of the order of operations, evaluating numeric and algebraic expressions, and translating algebraic expressions. They had a 2-part test - multiple-choice section and open-response. Extra credit was collected for the following assignments: "Rational Pictures," "Did You Hear About...," and "Order of Operations Practice." Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!! Have a wonderful break together! I am so thankful for all my wonderful students!
