Which point on the number line below is closest to ?
| | | | | | | | | A B C D Take a few moments and study the line. Notice how many segments there are between the numbers. Decide what each line represents. C

What value of p makes the equation 2p – 8 = 14 ?
Usually students would take the answer choices, plug in each value to see which one works. This is fine, but let’s actually solve it!!! When we solve equations, we use inverse operations. We also save the step that isolates the variable until the last step. 2p – 8 = 14 3 7 11 22 2p = 22 ___ ____

Why Don’t they Just use numbers?
Simplify this expression: 5( n + 4n) - 3 = 5(5n) – 3 = We don’t know the value of “n” but we can take it throughout the expression. The associative property lets me move the parentheses. (5 x 5)n – 3 = 25n - 3 I would like to do more, but I CAN’T. I do not know the value of n.

a Which point on the number line is closest to 4.75? | | | | | | | | |

Use the distributive property to get these values out of the ( ).
6(x + y) 6x + 6y

I know this is a calculator problem
I know this is a calculator problem. Make sure you punch it in correctly.

Make sure the rule you choose works on ALL values as you travel from one number to the next!

+ 4

We are estimating. Think of the nearest whole numbers!
Did you see the word “product?”

- +

3(4y + 6) (3∙4)y + (3∙6)

The number of customers that Just Pants had in its first five months of business is shown on the graph. If the number of customers continues to increase as shown, which is the BEST prediction of the number of customers Just Pants will have in July and August combined? 1600 1800 3400 4000 1400 1200 1000 800 600 400 200 Number of Customers Jan Feb Mar Apr. May Months

Solving Equations 4n + 25 = 325 4n = 300 ___ ____ 4 4 n = 75 -25 -25
Remember, isolating the variable from its coefficient is the LAST step!! What can we remove without touching the 4n? 4n = 325 Now we are down to a one-step equation! 4n = 300 ___ ____ n = 75

Algebra Models Key Key -x2 x2 x -x -1 1 1. 2. The + is invisible!!!
What expression is represented by each model?

Simplify the Expression

p = (48 – 21) ∙ 3 p= (48 – 21) ÷ 3 p= (48 + 21) ÷ 3 p= 48 – (21÷3)
The tigers scored 48 points in their last basketball game. The team’s best player scored 21 points in the game. The rest of the points were scored equally by 3 other players. Which equation could be used to find p, the number of points that each of the 3 players scored? p = (48 – 21) ∙ 3 p= (48 – 21) ÷ 3 p= ( ) ÷ 3 p= 48 – (21÷3)

Alex read 5 pages in 9 minutes
Alex read 5 pages in 9 minutes. If he continued to read at the same rate, how many pages could Alex read in 45 minutes? Problems like this can be solved by writing the rate in the form of a fraction……even though it is a rate. This is what we know. Let’s treat it like a fraction and create an equal value…….line up like measures …….. 81 41 25 10

At the clothing store, Wendy paid a total of \$ She bought a T-shirt for \$12.76 and two sweaters. The sweaters were both the same price. What was the cost of one sweater? \$ sweater sweater = \$48.58 We know both sweaters cost the same thing, so……. \$ n = \$ Subtract the \$12.76 \$16.19 \$17.91 \$24.29 \$30.67 2n = \$ If two cost this amount, how do we find the price of one?

Properties! 8 x 3 x 1 = 8 x 3 (8 x 3) x 4 = 8 x (3 x 4)
Which equation represents the commutative property of multiplication? 8 x 3 x 1 = 8 x 3 (8 x 3) x 4 = 8 x (3 x 4) 8 x 3 = (4 x 3) + (4 x 3) (8 x 3) x 4 = (3 x 8) x 4

How many 8 in. by 10 in. rectangular tiles would be needed to cover a 16 ft by 20 ft floor? A = lw
WAIT…..if you are thinking of all the multiplying you have to do here is another way. 576 You should notice the two dimensions you are given: one measure in feet, the other in inches. Regardless, the problem is about floor area. Normally you would multiply both the 16 and the 20 by 12 to change them to inches…….. Why not use factors and save time? 2 (12) 2 (12) = 2 2 16 (12) ∙ 20 (12) would give the area in inches Why not do it all at once??? 8 (10) Then you would divide by the area created by an 8 x 10 tile.

Properties! 9 + (5 + 4) = (9 + 5) + 4 9 + (5 + 4) = 9 + (4 + 5)
Which equation represents the distributive property? 9 + (5 + 4) = (9 + 5) + 4 9 + (5 + 4) = 9 + (4 + 5) 9 x (5 + 4) = (9 x 5) + (9 x 4) 9 x (5 + 4) = (9 x 5) x (9 x 4)
