Big Ideas: When adding and subtracting polynomials of like terms, the coefficients change based on rules of integers but the exponents remain the same. Students will build on their knowledge of combining like monomials and rules of integers. In this task, students learn to add and subtract polynomials using the rules of integers, combining like terms, and the distributive property. Vocabulary: perimeter, combining like terms
