Module 1: Mathematical Operations  Course Guide
Module Overview:
In this module students will learn about the basic order of operations to use when evaluating numerical expressions. Students will learn about how to use parentheses, brackets or braces in mathematical expressions. Students will learn about translating words into math and the meaning of math expressions. Students will learn about how to use their knowledge about mathematical translation to solve word problems. Students will learn about creating numerical patterns and identifying relationships between patterns. They will learn about relationships between different sequences and how to find them and learn about ordered pairs and how they can be created from sequences.

1  Introduction to Operations  
2  Parentheses, Brackets, and Braces  In their Math notebook, have your student record the steps for the order of operations when parenthesis, brackets, and braces are involved. 
3  Translating Words to Math  In their math notebook, have your student explain the following: translation and the math operation words. 
4  Translating Math to Words  Give your student 5 different math problems and have them write them into words in their Math notebook. 
5  Meaning of Mathematical Expressions  In their Math notebook, have your student summarize what they learned about Mathematical Expressions in this lesson. 
6  Translating Mathematical Expressions  In their Math notebook, have your student describe the steps involved to translate a mathematical expression. 
7  Patterns and Sequences  
8  Relationships Between Sequences  In their Math Notebook, have your student summarize the steps they can follow to discover relationships in sequences. 
9  Ordered Pairs  In their Math Notebook, have your student explain the following: ordered pair, coordinate plane, corresponding terms, and how to graph ordered pairs. 
10  Patterns and Graphs  In their Math notebook, have your student explain the three types of trends when looking at data. 
Module Guiding Questions:
When a student starts a lesson ask them questions to check for prior knowledge and understanding and to review concepts being taught. At the end of the lesson ask the questions again to see if their answer changes.

Module Video Questions:
When a student watches a video take time to ask them questions about what they watched. Suggested questions for the videos in this module are listed here. Suggestion: Have the student watch the entire video first all the way through. Then have them watch the video a second time, as they watch it pause the video and ask the questions.

Module Suggested Read Aloud Books:
Take time to read to your student or have them read aloud to you. Read a different book each day. While reading the book point out concepts being taught. You may purchase these books or find them at your local library. Suggested things to discuss while reading the book:
 What is the main idea?
 What are three things new you learned?
 How does this book relate to what you are learning about?
