Like Terms and Unlike Terms

1. Terms, coefficient, and constant terms

• The expression 2x – 3y + 8 consists of three terms. They are 2x, -3y and 8. The numerical part, including the sign, of a term is called the coefficient of the variable.
• Term 2x, the coefficient of x is 2
• Term -3y, the coefficient of y is -3
• Term 8, is called constant term

2. Classify the like terms and unlike terms: explained in class

3. Simplify the algebraic expression by combining (or collecting) like terms

• 2x + 3x = 5x
• 8y – 3y = 5y
• 3a + 4b – 2a + 5b = (3a -2a) + (4b +5b) = a + 9b

4. Home Work:

• Handout: two pages
• Workbook:
• page 21: 1, 2
• Page 22: 6, 9, 10

Writing Algebraic Expressions to Represent Real-world Situation

1. We may use algebraic expressions and formulas to express the relationship between two or more quantities in our daily life

• Lots of examples teaching in the classroom, and lots of exercise on whiteboard
• Visualizing, drawing
• Variables are representing quantities with similar units.

2. Home Work:

• Handout: three pages
• Workbook:
• page 17: 15, 16, 17, 18, 19
• Page 18: 20, 21, 22, 23, 24
• Page 19: 25
