Distributive Property Reminder

The test is tomorrow and I think everyone is going to do a great job!  Remember the steps to PEMDAS, work carefully on exponents and distribute evenly!

Here are some of the examples from class on distribution and check out this previous post on the distributive property to help you!

Review your study guide, previous hw assignments and the blog to prepare for tomorrow!  By the way, you will be able to use your orange sheet, but no calculators.  Sorry!  :(

Distributive Property!

Hey everyone!

We just started working on the distributive property today in class.  Watch the Professor Perez video below for an extra explanation!

Homework is to complete both sides of the distributive property worksheet.  Work carefully and don't expect to get an "answer" when you do the problems!

Have a great night!

Playing with Order of Operations!

Everyone has been doing a nice job with order of operations and following PEMDAS!

Here are the answers to the homework from Thursday night...

Today in class we played a game in which we tried to get close to target numbers using random numbers, any operation we could think of and our logical minds.  For example, here are some answers for the target value 10 using the numbers 3, 8 and 3.

We'll play the game again tomorrow, but in the meantime, you have homework tonight on Order of Operations.  Please complete both sides of the OoO worksheet!  There are six problems on each side, but if you get 10 correct, your paper can go in the 100's box tomorrow.  Please note that none of the answers are decimal values, but #6 on the the "review" side is a negative number.

Good luck!

You received a packet on Exponents and Order of Operations today that will be due on Thursday.  I encourage you to work on and hopefully complete the first page (front and back ) tonight!  We will work on it more during class on Wednesday!

Some help on the packet below!

Playing with exponents, folding, halving, and theoretical math!

So we first reviewed the pink paper problem from yesterday!  Option B was the better choice, but over time we found out that option A becomes the best choice on the 13th week. Take a look at your potential earnings over 25 weeks (about half the year) below!

We talked about halving and folding and practiced doing so in various mediums!

We also played an exponent game!  Try it at home...  What gets you closest to 300,000??

Tonight's homework is to complete 2 X 10 + 7 - 3^3 problems!  (^ means that the number that follows it is an exponent)

See you tomorrow!
