TeacherKristin Andreason
Subject Area8th Grade Intensive Math
Grade Level8
Week #Two
Unit of InstructionUnit 6: Properties of Exponents and Unit 7: Scientific Notation and Unit 8: Transformations
Standard(s) Taught
  • MAFS.8.EE.1.1:  Know and apply the properties of integer exponents to generate equivalent numerical expressions.
  • MAFS.8.EE.1.3:  Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of ten to estimate very large or very small quatities, and to express how many times as much one is than the other.
  • MAFS.8.EE.1.4:  Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used.
  • MAFS.8.G.1.1:  Verify experimental properties of rotations, reflections, and translations.  
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
  • Students will be able to apply the properties of integer exponents to perform operations of numbers with exponents.
  • Students will be able to rewrite very large or very small numbers in standard notation in scientific notation.
  • Students will be able to compare numbers written in scientific notation.
  • Students will be able to add, subtract, multiply, and divide numbers written in scientific notation using laws of exponents.
  • Students will learn how to rotate, reflect, and translate a figure.
  • Students will understand that rotations, reflections, and translations are rigid transformations.
Classroom Activities

Monday/Tuesday:

  • Students will review exponent rules and scientific notation before the test in their core class.
  • Students will do a Kahoot! and then some Quizizzes on scientific notation to review.

Wednesday:

  • I will introduce transformations and will demonstrate in particular how to translate a figure.
  • Students will begin working on a Hulk/Spiderman transformation.

Thursday/Friday:

  • Students will work on their Hulk/Spiderman transformations.
Assignments Due
  • Hulk/Spiderman transformations are due by Thursday/Friday January 17/18.
