PACING One class period, approximately 60 minutes LEARN MATHCAST: SIMPLIFY BEFORE MULTIPLYING OR DIVIDING In this video, students are shown that it is easier to simplify things. As an analogy to simplifying equations, students see placing vitamins in peanut butter to simplify the process of giving the vitamins to dogs. Students are then shown how to combine like terms to solve the equation x + 4x = -25. KEYWORDS Students can preview definitions of keywords hyperlinked throughout the lesson. • distributive property • equivalent equations • inverse operations • like terms • properties of equality MATERIALS • Reference guide pages 62–64 • practice Activity Book pages 38–41 • Overview and Toolkit presentations SIMpLIFy BeFORe MuLTIpLyINg OR DIvIDINg 83
