Happy Monday!  Tonight's Cyber Monday has two purposes.  First, it is your traditional Monday homework  that needs to be completed in an organized way to be checked tomorrow.  Second, it is a review of what you will see on your order of operations summative assessment that you will be taking tomorrow.  This assessment is your last grade for the 1st quarter which ends on 10/13.  The questions below are practice Progressing (2), Mastering (3), and Innovating (4) problems that you will see on tomorrow's assessment. Good luck!

Progressing:  Write the following exponent in EXPANDED FORM and STANDARD FORM.

Progressing:  Write the following in EXPONENTIAL FORM and STANDARD FORM.

3 x 3 x 3 x 3

Mastering: Solve the following expressions using Order of Operations.

42 + 5 + 2(5-3)

Innovating:  Insert the correct symbols [+, -, , ÷, ()] to make the following equation true. You may not need to use all of the symbols, and you may use the same symbol more than once.

Improper Fractions and Mixed Numbers

It is very important to be able to convert improper fractions into mixed numbers.  Many times when we add, subtract, multiply, or divide fractional numbers our final answer often ends up being an improper fraction.  It is our job to understand the process of converting these numbers into an appropriate format.  Here is how you do it!

It is also important to know how to convert mixed numbers into improper fractions.  In order to multiply and divide mixed numbers you must be able to due this.  I call this process "THE CIRCLE OF TRUST."  This is how you do it!
