NO SCHOOL ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5TH

HW for Monday and Tuesday:  Both sides of the handout writing algebraic expressions.  I have attached the examples from class today if you didn’t get them all done.  Pay special attention the order of numbers and variables when using subtraction and division.  If you need more examples, p. 376-377 in your textbook will help.  Visit Mrs. Rudd’s blog for additional help with the homework if you need it.  She has done some of the even numbered problems.

If you want some extra practice with substitution for algebraic expressions then you might want to use the following quizizz codes for evaluating expressions.   Go to join.quizizz.com and enter following codes:  662142  and 031518
