Exponents and Captains

Monday's practice included a review of basic exponent rules for sixth graders (worksheet) and a lesson on how to deal with negative and fractional exponents for 7th and 8th graders (worksheet).
It should be noted that students in the Elementary Division (6th grade and below) are not allowed to use negative or fractional roots or exponents.
At the end of practice this year's team captains were announced. Congratulations to 8th graders Lorna, Chelsea, Richard and Andrew. The Friday tournament teams will be revealed on Friday, and the students will pick names for their teams.
Our first tournament is this Saturday at Clague. Students should be there by 8:30.
