## Description

**This resource pack is everything you need to assess and provide intervention for struggling 8th grade students in the domain: Expressions and Equations.**

**How do these intervention packs work?
**Starting with a pretest and item analysis of each question on the test, you will be able to pin-point exact needs of all students. From there printables and short assessments are provided for each standard that assess procedural and conceptual understanding. Data charts and documents are provided to help keep you organized and focused during all steps of the intervention process.

Take the guess work out of providing intervention and focus on what is really importantโฆ helping your students!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

**Expressions and Equations Topics Covered
**โฅ 8.EE.1 โ Develop and apply the properties of integer exponents to generate equivalent numerical expressions

โฅ 8.EE.2 โ Square and cube roots

โฅ 8.EE.3 โ Use numbers expressed in scientific notation to estimate very large or very small quantities and to express how many times as much one is than the other.

โฅ 8.EE.4 โ Perform multiplication and division with numbers expressed in scientific notation to solve real-world problems

โฅ 8.EE.5 โ Graph proportional relationships, interpreting the unit rate as the slope of the graph

โฅ 8.EE.6 – Use similar triangles to explain why the slope m is the same between any two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane

โฅ 8.EE.7 โ Solve linear equations in one variable

โฅ 8.EE.8 โ Analyze and solve pairs of simultaneous linear equations

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What is procedural understanding?

โ Houses practice of procedural steps

โ Requires facts, drills, algorithms, methods, etc.

โ Based on memorizing steps

โ Students are learning how to do something

***************************************************************************

What is conceptual understanding?

โ Understanding key concepts and apply prior knowledge to the new concepts

โ Understanding why something is done

โ Making connections & relationships
