This is a, "We Do, You Do" assignment to get your students practicing concepts and skills from the entire 8th grade year. "We Do, You Do," assignments are designed so that students get to see how a problem is worked out to refresh their memory over a concept before working a similar problem out on their own. The assignment is set up for scaffolded review of concepts already learned. The first column is designed as a, "We-Do," problem to refresh the students on a concept. Then, the next two are designed for individual or group work.
