### scriiibe (: [ Feb. 20/ 06 ]

the first thing we did in class was take down what we should have in our math section for our electronic portfolios.

then we took notes on

__collecting like terms.__

- Terms that have the same variable parts are called like terms.

E.G1 ;; 3x + 7 = 40

Add 10x/ 10 ... 40/ 10

x = 4

3(4) + 7(4) = 40

E.G2 ;; 4x + 6 - 2x -9 = 9

4x - 2x + 6 - 9 = 9

2x - 3 = 9 + 3/ 2

x = 12/ 2

x = 6

You want 1 variable and 1 integer term on each side. After you have simplified

3x2 + 2x - x = 5x

3x2 - x2 + 2x +5x

2x2 +7x

aaand... we have pages 6.6 / 6.7 [ 1-18 ]

and 6.8 [ 1-20 ]

Dearly this is one of the most creative posts yet. You did not have to explain the student led portfolio presentation as well as you did. Way to go.

Keep blogging and comment on other posts.

Awesome

What a unique presentation for posting on the blog. =D The visual impact of the numbered boxes organizes the sequence of events for the reader and summarizes the details beautifully. You continue to raise the already high standard of work.

Excellent Work. And I mean Excellent. You have set the standard in your class.
