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 tasks have progressed in difficulty over the last few days, which lends itself nicely to both review and extension as each day passes.
For HW141 I have provided multiple choice questions to provide students with practice multiplying polynomials. The answers are provided so that students can confirm their answers and consider their mistakes.
