Simplifying Expressions Grid

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you enjoy the time off with your family. Sorry, doing a little bit of school work this morning.
I just want to remind everyone about completing sections you are missing on your Simplifying Expressions Grid. I have just updated progress book if you are unsure of what you still need to complete. I am attaching the handouts that go along with the grid. I will also be posting the handouts on my webpage. I don't expect anyone to print out the papers, you can complete them on a separate sheet of paper.
