              Simplifying Algebraic Products

              Students learn how to simplify algebraic products using the rules of indices and basic algebraic notation.  As learning progresses students begin to apply their learning to evaluate the area of a rectangle with algebraic lengths.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to simplify the product and quotient of an unknown and number.
              • Most students should be able to simplify a product and quotient involving powers.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the area of a rectangle with algebraic lengths.

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
