# Q1 W2 August 19-23 Algebra I

Teacher Stephanie Durrance Algebra I Honors 7th/8th 2 Unit 1: Basics of Expressions and Equations
Standard(s) Taught
 MAFS.912.A-SSE.1.1: Interpret expressions that represent a quantity in terms of its context.  a. Interpret parts of an expression, such as terms, factors, and coefficients. b. Interpret complicated expressions by viewing one or more of their parts as a single entity.

MAFS.912.A-SSE.1.2: Use the structure of an expression to identify ways to rewrite it.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
 ·         identify and describe a polynomial (including a monomial, binomial, trinomial, and                polynomial). ·         explain what factor, coefficient, degree, term, like terms, leading term, and leading                  coefficient mean in the context of expressions. ·         identify factors, coefficients, different terms, and like terms in expressions ·         identify simplified form of monomials, binomials, and trinomials as standard form.

use properties (commutative, associative, and distributive) to rewrite expressions.
