## Let's Practice.pdf - Section 2: Let's Practice! Simplifying Exponential Expressions with Leading Coefficients

# More Exponents with Coefficients

Lesson 6 of 10

## Objective: SWBAT apply rules of exponents with expressions that include leading coefficients.

## Big Idea: After taking our weekly CI Quiz, students will have additional practice simplifying expressions with leading coefficients.

#### CI Quiz #4

*27 min*

It's time for the weekly Continuous Improvement Quiz! (See CI Folder in Resources for additional information on this process.) This is week number four, so we take CI Quiz #4 8th. Students have 15 minutes to complete the quiz and we spend 7 minutes going quickly over the answers.

After going over the answers to CI Quiz #4, I provide students additional practice with simplifying exponential expressions with leading coefficients during Let's Practice. I give them a variety of equations so that they can practice applying all the rules we have learned in this unit. I also want to see that they are able to recognize leading coefficients and how to handle them.

Once the timer sounds after six minutes, we come together as a class to come to consensus about the answers. I randomly select students from my cup of name sticks to answer each questions. I then ask the class to agree or disagree. If there is disagreement, I ask a dissenting students to share her solution.

#### Write Now!

*8 min*

To assess students' progress toward our day's objective, I ask each student to answer the Write Now! response in his/her journal. This writing prompt provides me great data about which students are able to apply the rules we have learned and how many need intervention time with me, which I provide during our first hour advisory class.
