After their hard work students were rewarded with one jenga piece per correct problem and were able to use those pieces to build a tower with classmates. Mini jenga was a good time!

Today was day 2 of Combining Like Terms, we practiced lots of different problems  on the dry erase boards. Here are some extra examples Combining Like Terms Examples-1fa942t


We also went over the most missed from our Unit 3 Quiz 2 which students received today.

The best way to study for the test is to create and solve problems similar to the problems on Unit 3 Quiz 2. I will put some extra practice problems on the blog tomorrow as well.


Quiz Correction Requirements:

  • On a black sheet of notebook paper title Unit 3 Quiz 2 Corrections with heading in top right corner
  • If you missed the problem (even half credit), you must redo the problem showing ALL of the work [except the Identify Properties section]
    • For Identify Properties: Write the full name of the correct property and give an YOUR OWN example of the property.
  • Check your answers with the key¬†Unit 3 Quiz 2 Key-vh17u5




Please see the above instructions for how to do your quiz corrections

  1. Quiz Corrections
  2. Study Guide pg 3  #20-#22 . These are combining like terms. If you have parenthesis, do the distributive property first then you can combine like terms after. Do not stress over these 3 problems, SIMPLY  make the attempt and we will fix any mistakes in class.

November 7th 2018

Today we finished our Factoring Lesson ..there were many students who did not have their notes done from Monday night’s hw. I warned them, in the future, I will take these hw assignments for a completion grade as it is there responsibility to complete hw consistently especially when the HW is simply copying my notes from the blog.


Students will have their quizzes returned to them tomorrow so they can have another study resource for Monday’s Unit 3 Test.


We also covered the last lesson of this Unit: Combining Like  Terms, student really seemed to catch on fast. We will review this and practice more tomorrow.
