# AG 10-6 to 10

```Unit 2 Assignment guide Math 8A– Weeks of 10/06 to 10/10 and 10/13 – 10/17
Exponents and Equations
In this unit, students build upon their work with whole-number exponents in Grades 5 and 6, by extending the
properties of exponents to include rational and irrational numbers, including numbers in scientific notation.
Students strategically choose and efficiently implement procedures to solve linear equations in one variable,
understanding that when they use the properties of equality and the concept of logical equivalence, they maintain
the solutions of the original equation. Students also use linear equations to represent, analyze, and solve a variety
of problems.

MCC.8.EE.2 Use square root and cube root symbols to represent solutions to equations of the form x 2 = p and x3 =
p, where p is a positive rational number. Evaluate square roots of small perfect squares and cube roots of small
perfect cubes. Know that √2 is irrational.
EQ: What patterns and structures can I identify when looking at relationships among rational and irrational
numbers?
WU: Make a list of the first 15 perfect squares and the first 5 perfect cubes
CW: Models of Cubes Handout
HW: Finish the packet
Tuesday October 7/Wednesday October 8
Students will either go on the Walking Tour of Roswell on Tuesday or Wednesday morning, depending upon
which team they are on. The day they do not go on the tour, this will be their assignment. Students in the
afternoon will have review activities.

perfect cubes. Know that √2 is irrational.
EQ: What patterns and structures can I identify when looking at relationships among rational and irrational

MCC.8.EE.2 Use square root and cube root symbols to represent solutions to equations of the form x 2 = p and
x3 = p, where p is a positive rational number. Evaluate square roots of small perfect squares and cube roots of small
perfect cubes. Know that √2 is irrational.
MCC.8.NS.1 Know that numbers that are not rational are called irrational. Understand informally that every
number has a decimal expansion; for rational numbers show that the decimal expansion repeats eventually, and
convert a decimal expansion which repeats eventually into a rational number.
MCC.8.NS.2 Use rational approximations of irrational numbers to compare the size of irrational numbers, locate
them approximately on a number line diagram, and estimate the value of expressions (e.g., π 2).
