Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.


Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.
a. Write expressions that record operations with numbers and with letters standing for numbers.
b. Identify parts of an expression using mathematical terms (sum, term, product, factor, quotient, coefficient); view one or more parts of an expression as a single entity.
c. Evaluate expressions at specific values of their variables. Include expressions that arise from formulas used in real-world problems. Perform arithmetic operations, including those involving whole-number exponents, in the conventional order when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order (Order of Operations).

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• explain the meaning of a number raised to a power.
• write numerical expressions involving whole-number operations. • understand that a base number can be represented with a positive whole number, positive fraction, or positive decimal and that for any number a, we define am to be the product of m factors of a. The number a is the base and m is called the exponent or power of a.
• evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.

• translate a relationship given in words into an algebraic expression for all operations. • identify parts of an algebraic expression using mathematical terms for all operations.
• recognize an expression as both a single value and as two or more terms on which an operation is performed. • understand that a letter represents one number in an expression and when that number replaces the letter, the expression can be evaluated to one number (link “unknown”—what they learned in elementary school—to “variable”).
• apply the order of operations when evaluating both arithmetic and algebraic expressions.
• substitute values in formulas to solve real-world problems.

Classroom Activities

This week we will begin out Expressions Unit. We will begin this week with discussing the parts of an equation and key words that would give us clues as to what operation we should be performing. We will also be covering order of operations and exponents within this and next week. 

Assignments Due

“Percent of” assignment is due Tuesday 1-23 (Mathspace)

Receipt Project is due Friday 1-26 (See attached for rubric) 

If you would like to re-take Percent test, Remediation assignment is IXL S1 and S4 (an 80% or above). I will allow re-take testing to begin once the remediate assignment is complete. 

Additional Resources

Students are able to complete additional practice on both MathSpace and IXL
