TODAY: PRACTICE PROBLEMS:Part I - First complete the 5 questions assigned in class (Thursday for 8A,B,C and today for 8D,E) Solutions are posted on D2L under 'Content' under 'Chapter 2'. Remember how to tackle questions like (d) and (e). When a question is in the CHECK YOUR WORK!form of a fraction the LAST operation will be to divide the "top" (in a true fraction this is the numerator) and bottom (in a true fraction this is the denominator). This is essentially a {BEDMAS divided by BEDMAS} question.Part II: DID YOU CHECK THE SOLUTIONS FOR THE 5 QUESTIONS FROM CLASS? If you answered, "yes", then you are ready to move on. Next, finish the scaffolded practice sheet that you chose in today's class from the three that were made available [ A-B or C-D or D-E]. As before, the point is not to choose the "easiest" one but to choose one that will challenge you so that you keep moving forward with your learning.
