AIM: How can we solve problems involving distributive property?
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: Textbook p.72 #17 & 19
If we're trying to solve for the variable in our equation below, what can our first step be?
5 + 2(x-1) = 12
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.
