Students will be given 20 to 30 minutes to complete the Algebraic Expressions Quiz.  They will not be allowed to use their notes or discuss their work with another student.

If students should finish early I will encourage them to check their work.  I will give them a challenge problem for extra credit.  The challenge was discussed in a previous lesson, but students may not remember that there are two strategies for finding perimeter.
