__8.EE.A.4 Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used. Use scientific notation and choose units of appropriate size for measurements of very large or very small quantities (e.g., use millimeters per year for seafloor spreading). Interpret scientific notation that has been generated by technology.__

**Objective:**__: What does scientific notation mean?__

**Essential Question****I Can**tell whether or not a number is written in scientific notation.

Today's Agenda:

- Finish Definition of Scientific notation and Multiplying, Dividing and estimating with scientific notation using these google slides. (along with adding and subtracting)

__8.NS.A.2 Use rational approximations of irrational numbers to compare the size of irrational numbers, locate them approximately on a number line diagram, and estimate the value of expressions (e.g., π^2). For example, by truncating the decimal expansion of 2⎯⎯√, show that 2⎯⎯√ is between 1 and 2, then between 1.4 and 1.5, and explain how to continue on to get better approximations.__

**Objective:**__: How are the different methods for find the area of a square related?__

**Essential Question****I Can**find the area of a tilted square on a grid by using methods like “decompose and rearrange” and “surround and subtract.” I can find the area of a triangle.

Today's Agenda:

- Start Area of squares and their side lengths using these google slides

__Dear ACC7 Students,__

Hello! Unfortunately, I cannot be with you today. You are expected to get started RIGHT away when the bell rings at the beginning of the period . Remember, I expect you to be working and not socializing during this time. This is an academic setting, one in which I am holding you accountable for. Please be sure you have chosen your seats where you will work best.

- Get from the sub and complete Unit 8, Lesson 1: The Areas of Squares and Their Side Lengths (some of you did this yesterday) single page, single problem. This is an INDEPENDENT ASSIGNMENT Turn this in. Is your name on it???
- Get from the sub and complete Unit 8, Lesson 2: Lengths and Areas. You may work in groups of up to 3 quietly on this assignment. Turn this in. Is your name on it???
- Get from the sub and complete Unit 8, Lesson 1: The Areas of Squares and Their Side Lengths stapled packet with multiple problems. You may work in groups of up to 3 quietly on this assignment. Turn this in. Is your name on it???
- This is more than enough work for 90 minutes. If you have finished early, check back over your work. Is it the best that you could do? Did you show proof of your thinking? Will you be able to follow your own work on Monday?
