### Paint programs:

Psykopaint

Sumo Paint

Sumo Paint

And some of the photo editing resources that I enjoy...

A sample picture that I edited (rather crazily) in Picnik

Same picture, different editing.

This makes the picture look like a miniature... Same pic again.

Enjoy! Go get creative! Send me links to your pictures and I will post them on the blog!

-Miss K :)

### Okay... Here's the study guide...

In case you decide to get started, you can link to the study guide HERE and print it out. If you didn't see my post on Friday, I changed my mind and allowed you to wait on starting the study guide. I will distribute copies to everyone tomorrow, but wanted to make it available for those of you that would like to get started!

Remember, go to the Google Doc link above and print out the document. You may also save the document and email your answers to me at school! See you tomorrow! :)

As you know, the photocopier isn't working, so you will have digital homework tonight! Please play around on these games to practice you algebra skills. Some games may be harder or easier for your, more or less challenging, more or less fun, but they should all be worthwhile!

The Games:

Algebra Puzzle (from class) Think you got the 3 X 3 puzzle? Give 3 X 4 a go!

Balancing Scales Balance manipulatives. And the scale really works!!!

Coin Challenge A bit harder, but based on algebraic concepts!

Postal Delivery Using values in your algebra problems- Fun sounds!

Equation Match Find two equations in which the variables are the same value!

Solve for X Pretty challenging! You've got to think quick!

Solving Equations Calculator Stick with the positive numbers and click on the number toward the bottom to "undo" the math equation. Kinda tricky!

Millionaire Really hard problems with negative numbers, but if you are really up for a challenge, give it a try!

Cool Math Basic Algebra Click around between the lessons and the games. Come may have negative numbers.

Like terms game Be quick and get some good points!!!

And... Just for fun: Sugar, Sugar and Sugar, Sugar: Holiday edition

### Combining Like Terms

It was fun playing with combining like terms in class today. It seemed like everyone understood what we were doing and that you are all ready to do well on tonight's homework!

Reminders from class...

Thanks to Blue Class for letting me steal your work for the blog!

Tonight's homework, Combining Like Terms Worksheet, is available for printing HERE! Only 13 problems, so it shouldn't be too bad!

This video includes some stuff (exponents and negatives) that we haven't done, but is still basic enough to help. Take a look if you need a reminder!

Have a good night! Tomorrow is Friday!!!!!

### Nice work in class today!

Nice job reviewing variables, constants, expressions and equations. Here are the examples I collected throughout the day...

Tonight's homework is the writing expressions worksheet (Both Sides). Work carefully and think about the scenarios, especially when dividing! We were able to get 1388 questions right on today's challenge sheet. If you were in Red class, you won't know that I lowered the number you needed to get right to 1200, and you all did an awesome job!!! Your prize is that for the entire month of December you can put papers in the 100 bin even if you get one wrong. Let's build up that pile!!!!

Tomorrow we will begin combining like terms. Have a great night!

### Variables, Operations and Constants! Oh My!!!

Today we began working with expressions, equations, variables, constants... basically ALGEBRA!!!

We are doing basic work with identifying each of the terms and creating scenarios that match expressions or equations or vice versa.

Tonight's homework is Both Sides of the Expressions/Equations worksheet. Please also bring in your signed decimal tests tomorrow.
