today in class we folded a piece of paper into 12 squares. On the first square we wrote collecting like terms. Then we opened it and we wrote in the 1st row in the 1st square:

3x-3+6x+9=24

3x+6x-3+9=24

9x+6=24-6

9 -6 9

x= 13/9 =2

we wrote:

- choose 1 of 2 terms

- circle them

- add like terms

- solve the equation when you have only 1 of each term

we did another example:

-2x-3x+3+2=10

-5x+5=10 -5

/-5 -5

we wrote:

- circle the first term

- find like terms

- put the like terms together

*cancel using integer rules

we went onto something new, transposing:

6x+5=2x+13

-2x -5 =

-2x -5When you simplify it becomes

4x/4 = 8/4 x=2

6(2)+5=2(2)+13

17 = 17

we wrote:

- you need the variable (letter) on the left and numbers on the right

- cancel the right variable with its opposite

- cancel right integer with its opposite

then we had to work on the 'sammy the seal' booklet and finish page 40
