That is what we learned about how to do algebra today.
We wrote that example on the first square. On the second-sixth square was part of our homework. On the second square we wrote all of the different adding words. On the third square we wrote all of the different subtraction words. On the fourth square we wrote all of the different multiplying words. On the fifth square we wrote all of the different dividing words. Finally on the sixth square we wrote all of the different words for equals.
Our homework today was the first ten questions on the first page of the pink booklet, and the five squares on our "My algebra words" booklet.
I found an algebra website and a video that might be helpful.
