Warm-up:  Write an explanation and draw a diagram that explains to someone what "Place Value" means when referring to a number. ...Think about, "How could you explain it to someone who doesn't understand our number system yet." 

Classwork:  Unit #6, page 1 -describe all of the graphic representations shown on this page. Think about the following questions, and be ready to respond to them in class: How many different ways can you descibe what you see? How are the different ways that you repesent them using numbers and/or symbols different? Why are they so? What differing info do they each give you? Why do you think there are so many different ways to express the same thing?

Turned-in:    nothing

Homework:   Complete both the warm-up AND classwork above, if not finished in class today.  For the "warm-up" exercise... it should be done on a separate piece of paper (with your name) that you could "hand-in" at the beginning of class on Friday.

Notes:   Students had their last chance to come in to finish the Unit #4 test today. Unfinished tests will be graded "as is".
