## September 25 - September 29

The Week of September 25 – September 29

**8 ^{th} GRADE**

Monday is Accelerated Math. We continue this week learning how to use scientific notation to express very large and very small numbers. We will finish the week learning how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide using scientific notation.

**7 ^{th} GRADE**

Monday is Accelerated Math. We continue this week multiplying and dividing integers. We will also learn integer operations to solve real-world problems. On Friday, September 29^{th}, we will take a quiz on multiplying and dividing integers. Practice problems to help prepare for the quiz can be found on Google classroom.

## September 18 - September 22

The Week of September 18 – September 22

**8 ^{th} GRADE**

On Wednesday, September 20^{th}, we will have a quiz on properties of exponents. Practice problems for the quiz can be found on Google classroom. We will spend the rest of the week working with scientific notation. First, we will work with scientific notation with positive powers of 10. Next, we will work with scientific notation with negative powers of 10.

**7 ^{th} GRADE**

Our unit test on adding and subtracting integers will be Wednesday, September 20^{th}. Students will receive a study guide in class to help prepare for the test. Practice problems can be also found on Google classroom. We will finish the week multiplying and dividing integers.

## September 11 - September 15

The Week of September 11 – September 15

**8 ^{th} GRADE**

We continue working with integer exponents this week. We will learn how to simplify complicated expressions using powers of products. Our quiz on integer exponents is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, September 20^{th}. On Thursday, we begin Accelerated Math. No school Friday!

*7 ^{th} GRADE*

This week, we will conclude our unit on adding and subtracting integers. Our unit test will be Wednesday, September 20^{th}. Students will receive a study guide to help prepare for the test. Additional problems to help review for the test can be found on Google classroom. No school Friday!

## September 4 - September 8

The Week of September 4 – September 8

**8 ^{th} GRADE**

On Tuesday, we begin our next unit, “Exponents and Scientific Notation”. We start by exploring properties of integer exponents. We will work with multiplying and dividing exponents using Powers of 10. Next, we will work with negative exponents and learn about the negative exponent property. Finally, we will finish the week multiplying and dividing exponents and learn about the product of powers property and quotient of powers property.

**7 ^{th} GRADE**

On Wednesday, we will have a quiz on adding integers and absolute value. Practice problems to help prepare for the quiz can be found in our Google classroom. Reviewing notes, homework, and class work are also excellent ways to help prepare for the quiz. On Thursday, we begin subtracting integers and solving “real world” problems using integers.
