Good morning! Below please find my plans for your child this week. All assignments will be on PowerSchool by the end of today. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me here. Please stay safe and healthy and continue to pray for all of those affected by the virus.

Monday 03/16

Section 8-1 Multiplying monomials

Read textbook pages 410-412. The three key concepts and the concept summary are very important. Study the examples provided for clarification

CW: Section 8-1 worksheet

Tuesday 03/17

Section 8-2 Dividing monomials

Read textbook pages 417-420. The four key concepts are very important to understand and remember. Study the examples provided in the textbook for clarification.

CW: Section 8-2 worksheet #s 1-15

Wednesday 03/18

Continue from yesterday and complete Section 8-2 worksheet #s 16-29 (CW)

Thursday 03/19

Correct Sec. 8-2 worksheet (key provided in separate email) and redo any incorrect problems

Friday 03/20

Section 8-3 Scientific notation

Read textbook pages 425 to 426

This is largely review. Remember that negative exponents indicate that the number in standard form is a decimal.

CW: section 8-3 worksheet (p. 467 only)

I will be providing answers to student work in a separate email. Assignments may be found on my school webpage as well. In addition I will hopefully be uploading some instructional videos to assist with understanding.

Thank you so much for your help. This process is so new for all of us so I’m understanding if there’s glitches along the way. Stay in touch. I’m here to help in any way I can.

Sincerely, Mrs. O’Leary
