Today we are working on creating equivalent expressions. In order to do this we must use everything we know about combining like terms and the distributive property. When determining if expressions are equivalent it is recommended that we simplify them all first in order to see if they are the same.
To start class some groups started with the matching game. Students were asked to match the equivalent expressions.
Other groups worked on a matching worksheet. The directions were very specific and told them that some expressions had more than 1 match.
To finish off class students were given 8 multiple choice questions and a short response question to complete for homework.
