# Algebra

Here is a new take on combining like terms. Every student (or pair of students) gets a blueprint and a set of task cards. The blueprint marks the lengths of walls with polynomials, such as "x + 4" or "2x - 1". Each of the 16 cards asks the students to "find the length of the kitchen's north wall" or "find the perimeter of the dining room", leading students to combine the like terms they see.

### Combining Like Terms: A Blueprint!

Real-World Algebra Activity. Use A variety on Items around the classroom. Set a variable and a price to represent each item. (You can even allow the students to determine the prices). Have the students shop for items or create a shopping list for them. Students will need to write expressions that match their list, Then solve each expression to determine the final cost. Students practice writing algebraic expressions and multiplying and adding decimals. (Examples are provided on webpage)

#### CCSS-6.EE.6: Use variables to represent numbers write expressions; understand a variable can represent an unknown number. These laminated problems would be posted around the room. Students would be divided into teams of 3-4 each team would be designated a different color marker a place to start. Teams translate their card into a verbal sentence. Each team rotates to the next station, but they read what the group before them wrote come up w/a new way to translate.
