8th Grade Math :
Unit #12 - POLYNOMIALS AND FACTORING :
Lesson #2

Objective:
SWBAT multiply monomials.

1 Warm-up -
10 minutes

Each day, students complete a Warmup that usually consists of spiraling the previous day's material, in addition to older material. Warm-up problems also sometimes extend lessons that students have encountered before to more unfamiliar contexts.

For a video narrative about how I structure each lesson, and how the warm-up fits in watch my Lesson Structure video.

In today's warm-up, I wanted to re-focus on standards that are outside of the 8th grade common core, but part of the Algebra I standards. The first two tasks should be quick, but the third task is meant to be a bit of a problem-solving exercise - and I like how the interleaving of different topics gets their brains going in the beginning of class.
