Classwork: Students were introduced to the idea of "like terms" today. We learned about coefficients and what makes two terms "like." After several rounds of students taking terms matching terms on the smartboard, they played the like-terms matching game (which is found below). Remember** The coefficients do not determine whether two terms are like or not. The variable portion of the terms must match exactly in order for two terms to be like. Constants, terms without variables, are all like.
