AIM: How can we us distributive property to combine like terms and solve equations?
HW: Study for tomorrow's Unit 4 Exam
There will be a test this Friday, March 4 (3/4). The test will include material from unit 4, with a focus on more recent material. Topics include:
· Combining like-terms and simplifying expressions
· Distributive Property
· Solving One, Two, Multi-step equations
· Writing (and solving) equations from word problems
· Linear relationships
· Rate Tables
· Writing equations with independent and dependent variables
· Rates of change
Solve for the value of y that makes a true equation.
-2(4 + 2y) = -20
Ans: y = 3
The beginning portion of today's lesson was a culmination of what we've been working on for the past week. We expanded our equation solving skills by working on problems that involved distributive property, combining like terms, and solving equations. We were able to solve 4 step equations with our refined skills.
After our mini lesson, we used the Smart Response clickers to answer sample test questions from the unit. The questions are listed below.
