The algebraic expressions we have been constructing got taken to a whole new level of difficulty today in class!!! Students had to construct algebraic expressions that contained TWO “tip off” phrases! After a few attempts, students seemed to pick up on this more complex skill. Some students are still a little shaky on exactly what to do, but they all kept on working like troopers! So proud of their perseverance!

I have attached the homework for tonight as well as the Words & Phrases Chart we created in our math notebook. WATCH FOR *SWITCH PHRASES!!!! Remember: *Switch phrases tell you to take what’s at the end of the phrase and bring it to the front AND what’s at the front of the phrase and take it to the back of the phrase!

You’ve got this!!! Work hard!!!
