Complete the table.
|expanded form||exponential form|
|\(x\boldcdot x\boldcdot x\boldcdot x\boldcdot x\boldcdot x\boldcdot x\)|
1.2: Saving Money
Clare has a summer job. She wants to save money to spend on the family vacation at the end of summer. She is going to save $5 per week for each of the 10 weeks she is working.
Tyler also has a summer job and he, too, would like to save money to spend on the family vacation. He is going to start by saving $2 the first and second weeks and double the amount he saves each of the other weeks he is working ($4 the third week, $8 the fourth week, and so on).
Complete the table showing how much money each of them will have at the end of each week for the 10 weeks.
1.3: Identifying Equivalent Expressions
Choose an expression from List A and match it with an equivalent expression from List B and from List C.
- For each match that you find, explain to your partner how you know it’s a match.
- For each match that your partner finds, listen carefully to their explanation. If you disagree, discuss your thinking and work to reach an agreement.
- Switch roles so that your partner chooses a different expression from List A and matches it with an equivalent expression from List B and from List C.
\(6 \boldcdot 3\)
