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

In class, we complete the MATH workshop each period. This is a blended, rotation model of teaching where your student is receiving the standards in multiple different settings while completing many different activities. This allows me to have time with your students in a very small group setting to help when necessary further develop the understanding of the standards.

Assignments Due

The week students will be assigned the following on IXL to practice class concepts:

IXL: (Monday/Wednesday/Thursday) D2, Y1

Mathspace: None this week 

Additional Resources

If additional help is needed, students are encouraged to view a lesson regarding a given topic on Khan Academy. This website is free and provides both video instruction as well as practice problems. 

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