AIM: How can we using properties of operations to write equivalent expressions using less terms?
HW: Revise homework from yesterday (posted below)
Write down your AIM and copy your homework before the buzzer goes off. Be prepared to think.
The lesson for today revolved around the idea that certain terms can be combined to make equivalent expressions. We looked at two student-generated expression and substituted values in for variables to see if the expressions were equivalent to the original. From there, we were able to draw inferences on how the expressions were rewritten/simplified. We looked at how you can use associative, distributive, and commutative properties to rewrite expressions.
