# Q1 W3 Sept 7-Sept 11 Algebra 1 Teacher Stephanie Durrance Algebra 1 Honors 7th/8th 3 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 using properties (associative, commutative, and distributive).

MAFS.912.A-APR.1.1: Understand that polynomials form a system analogous to the integers, namely, they are closed under the operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication; add, subtract, and multiply polynomials.

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
• write a function that combines functions using arithmetic operations (addition, subtraction, and multiplication) and relate the result to the context of the problem
