Algebra patterns 3

These are my four algebra patterns that I made for maths. I added first then subtracted. On my second pattern I went into the negatives.

Calendar art

This is my bad calendar art at first I thought it looked bad but then Mrs Hodgkinson thought my picture of my glasses was a horse. Any art you don't think or think is art it is art.

This is my good calendar art. It is better than my old one.
