This is a 66-page document ($0.25/page) with exactly 10 days worth of material covering the topics listed further below. The document includes a student Note-Taking Guide for each day (each topic), an Independent or Partner Work Activity (called the "You do"), a Homework Sheet, and an Entrance Ticket (mini-quiz) each day. It also includes a Test Review and Test.
I suggest that this product either be 1) implemented as a 7th grade introduction to simplifying Algebraic Expressions and Combining Like Terms, or 2) used as Expressions review material during the first 2 week of 8th grade. (I always use it with my 8th graders the first 2 weeks of school!)
Topics & Objectives covered:
Objective: I can identify and combine like terms to simplify an expression.
Objective: I can translate English (verbal) phrases into Mathematical (algebraic) expressions.
Objective: I can write an expression based on a real-world situation.
Objective: I can solve real-world & geometry problems involving the Distributive Property.
Objective: I can use the Distributive Property to simplify expressions with negative & variable coefficients.
Objective: I can simplify algebraic expressions that have fractions.
Objective: I can simplify algebraic expressions that have decimals.
