Days 53 and 54: compatible numbers; power of a power

In one of my standard classes I began the lesson with this visual pattern.

I asked the students to “read” the pattern and determine what’s important  in order to solve the problem. I wrote about it in depth here.

The standard students are working on decimal estimation using compatible numbers. I have a few students who won’t be able to get through the topic without the aid of a calculator.

The pre-algebra students are finishing up exponents and are learning the distributive property and combining like terms.

This week wraps up parent teacher conferences. I’m hoping to write more after the week is through.
