Lesson 2 of 12
Objective: SWBAT multiply monomials.
Each day, students complete a Warmup that usually consists of spiraling the previous day's material, in addition to older material. Warm-up problems also sometimes extend lessons that students have encountered before to more unfamiliar contexts.
For a video narrative about how I structure each lesson, and how the warm-up fits in watch my Lesson Structure video.
In today's warm-up, I wanted to re-focus on standards that are outside of the 8th grade common core, but part of the Algebra I standards. The first two tasks should be quick, but the third task is meant to be a bit of a problem-solving exercise - and I like how the interleaving of different topics gets their brains going in the beginning of class.
