The Past Week in Class

Last week we started reviewing for the Show Me What You Can Do which is scheduled to be given on Wednesday.  Students applied what they learned about writing expressions to a comic strip of Garfield.  Here is the comic strip.

They were asked many questions about the comic.

The most important part of the exercise was for students to be able to write expressions and then use them to solve.

Later in the week students applied another problem, this time about the change to the Starbucks rewards program.  Students were given information in a video and a chart.

Here is a link to the video:

Students were asked these questions culminating with a question to find out how much they need to spend to make the New Rewards Program worthwhile.
