As we continue in math, we are diving into a review of old and slightly new concepts. For example, the students are reviewing order of operations with the added understanding of the distributive property. Just as a review: Order of Operations is Parentheses, Exponents, Multiply or Divide (whichever comes first), then Add or Subtract (whichever one comes first). The Distributive Property requires that you multiply the outside number to both numbers inside the parentheses. This will come in handy when we start to do algebra and have to simplify expressions. Your student has handouts and examples of both of these math concepts.
