## Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Add and Subtract Linear Expressions - Section 3: Summarize + Homework

For this lesson, I ended up not assigning the homework.  Students worked really hard in class, but will still getting tripped up with subtraction, and the fact that they needed to distribute a negative one, or change it to adding the opposite - however you look at it.  I did not feel comfortable in the fact that students would be able to go home and be successful with the assignment, getting the practice that they need.  Instead, I am going to use the assignment as an alternative to tomorrow's game - in case I need to assign certain students seat work for any reason :)

## Big Idea: A step further than simple combining like terms – now parenthesis are involved, but with the right moves, it is just as easy!
