Description

I love teaching algebra. Building on the previous lessons in this series, I look at adding and subtracting terms. Looking at whether you can add apples and bananas together is a great springboard into teaching like terms. It really helps when we then move onto apple-bananas and banana-apples! Don't even get me started with square apples adding to square bananas! Using my own unique style to teach the algebra, here is this video with lots of worked examples to make anyone a boss of this topic.
