So far I've skipped them and wanted to do a unit on all of them at the end.

When you get...I have McDougal 2007 version though.<br /><br />When you get to factoring trinomials in ax^2 + bx +c with a number greater than one, I used both the guess and check method and the Kimmel Asterisk method (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwbteAIqUlY). My kids loved the asterisk method because it gave them the right answer right away as long as they memorized how to set up the asterisk. <br /><br />Do you cover chapter 13 at all? Probability? Our scope and sequence that was set up was to teach chapter 8 (rules of exponents) and then go to Ch. 13 and then back to Ch. 9 (polynomials). I did that last year but this year I'm just going from Ch. 8 to 9.. it just makes too much sense that rules of exponents lead right into polynomials!Sarahhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/11163745763731083348noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2467202639598238063.post-42855604044528928102010-04-11T02:01:36.712-05:002010-04-11T02:01:36.712-05:00Thanks Mr. D,
