__Bellwork__

Students will complete math minute 9 from

*8th Grade Math Minutes*.

Students will turn in homework to the homework tray.

__Common Core Standard__

8.EE.C.7: Solve linear equations in one variable.

__Lesson__(Combining Like Terms)

1. The teacher will start with a demonstration of combining like terms using 3 different groups of objects (paperclips, markers, and index cards) placed in a bag. The teacher will lead a discussion of what characteristics were used to group the objects. What is like? What is unlike? The teacher will create an expression using the objects.

2. The teacher will present pictures of 3 different fast food items. The teacher will ask students to identify like and unlike items (terms). The teacher will ask students to create an expression to represent the objects.

3. The teacher will present a set of algebra tiles on the overhead. The teacher will ask students to identify like and unlike terms. The teacher will ask students to create an expression to represent the objects.

4. The teacher will present the definition of like terms and an example for students to add to their math journals. The teacher will demonstrate how to use shapes to mark like terms and model how to combine them.

5. Students will play "Combining Like Terms" Uno in groups of 3 or 4.

__Closing__

Students will discuss what they have learned about combining like terms.

__Homework__

Complete 5 problems on the "Combining Like Terms Easy" worksheet.
