#### 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.

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.

I like zooming in on the 3rd question, as it uncovers students who still have trouble with the order of subtracting polynomials, or forget about the parentheses. The more they see it, the more they will retain it.
