Bell Work - collected after reviewing solutions

**Classwork**

(1) Self-assess

**"Solving Addition and Subtraction Equations"**by "Highlighting the Positives". Correct problems and submit by the end of class or complete over the weekend for full credit.

(2) Complete

**Reading and Writing Algebraic Expressions Quiz**.

(3) Brain Pop Video - Equations

(4) Guided practice on how to show organized work for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division equations. Discussed the application of the Identity Property with equations - how the Identity Property of Addition and Subtraction is similar and different than the Identity Property of Multiplication and Division.

(5) Student choice groups for completing

**"Hexagonal Flowers"**- multiplication and division equations. Show organized work on separate paper. Show how to isolate the variable by using inverse operations on both sides of the equation. Will finish on Monday.

**Homework**- Finish correcting "Solving Addition and Subtraction Equations." Copy attached under Thursday's blog. Have a wonderful weekend!
