Tomorrow (Thursday Nov 13) is our Midterm for our Numbers Strand.

The Midterm will include the following Topics & Skills. To review for the midterm, I suggest trying the following videos and practice questions from Khan Academy and other sources on the web. Don't necessarily do all of them - focus on the ones you need a reminder of or need help with.

-parts of a power - explanation

-evaluating powers (remember what to do with negative signs - video)

-zero exponent and powers of 10 - zero exponent video,

-Exponent Laws - product of powers, quotient of powers, power of a power, power of a product or quotient

-order of operations (BEDMAS*) with powers

(students are allowed to bring in their fractions flow chart)

-order and compare rational numbers - video, questions

-simplify fractions and convert from mixed numbers to improper fractions (always write answers as

-add and subtract fractions (and decimals) - video1, video 2, questions

-multiply & divide fractions - video 1, video 2, questions 1, questions 2

-order of operations (BEDMAS*)

*Remember with BEDMAS that DM are at the same level (division is NOT before multiplication, you just go from left to right), and same with AS.

(students must know perfect squares up to 15 times 15)

-recognizing and solving perfect squares - video, questions

-perfect squares in the form of fractions and decimals - fractions video,

-estimating square roots of non-perfect squares (use benchmarks to find a decimal estimate) - video

-simplifying non-perfect squares (leave in whole numbers, part under the radical sign) - video
