#### Warm-up

*10 min*

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.

Today's warm-up provide a "mixtape" of sorts to give kids a small amount of review daily that goes a LONG way toward retention of concepts.

#### Homework

*15 min*

I want the students' confidence to remain high at this point of the unit, so this problem set has problems at an appropriate level of difficulty to help students stay in the groove:
