Unit 1 - Number Sense & Algebra (Ch. 3 & 4)

Chapters 3 & 4 from the textbook
In this unit we will discover polynomials and higher-order expressions. We'll talk about exponents, the rules of exponents, and discover what it means to "solve for the unknown" in an equation. Furthermore, we will discover what the difference is between an expression and an equation.

Please note - the list of homework in the table below is the most up-to-date version.
The unit outline can be found in the table below, as well as any lesson files, online tools, or extra information (subject to change as we move through the course):
