TeacherStephanie Durrance
Subject AreaAlgebra 1 Honors
Grade Level7th/8th
Week #2
Unit of InstructionUnit 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 using properties (associative, commutative, and distributive).

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• identify and describe a polynomial (include 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
