Monday, November 14th

Students are continuing their practice with Order of Operations. A multitude of problems were worked together during class today to ensure everyone understood the very specific steps I am requiring of all students to complete each problem. Students will be awarded points for their work tomorrow based on the following:

  • use of the PEMDAS checklist down the side of each problem
  • use of brackets on each step as they solve the problem
  • computation of the correct answer

See the following example on how to properly complete each homework problem:

Students not fulfilling all three requirements for homework will have points deducted from their homework score. Parents, please ensure your student shows all three components on each problem as they work this evening!
