Turning Guided Notes into a Formative Tool
DESCRIPTION
Learn how to use guided notes in your classroom and use them as a tool for formative assessment.
  • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.7.EE.A.1 Apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with rational coefficients.
  • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.7.EE.A.2 Understand that rewriting an expression in different forms in a problem context can shed light on the problem and how the quantities in it are related. For example, a + 0.05a = 1.05a means that "increase by 5%" is the same as "multiply by 1.05."
