Announcements: There will be an exam on linear relationships, equations, combining like-terms, distributive property, and solving multi-step equations next Friday, February 17, 2017.
HW: Complete Combining like-terms mini-project
Simplify each expression.
1) y ( -4) 2) -5(-3n)
3) -2x + 5 + 7x - 8 4) -3n -13 - 4n - 20
Classwork: The class reviewed the concept of distributive property, and then applied it to situations involving variables. We tied in combining like-terms to bridge our understanding to equation solving.
