Adding Monomials

We were classifying polynomials and adding monomials and combining like terms with a beginner class, and it got a little rowdy toward the end as they wanted to get their work finished -- they're trying to impress me before the end of the marking period tomorrow. As a result, I didn't get to ask my favorite summary question.

I mentioned this to two of the stragglers still working after the bell, and they asked what the summary question was. It was the one from the Combining Like Terms comic, naturally.

Let's just say that they got it ... but they didn't get it.

Not even when I repeated it to them as the gave me their work before leaving.
