In Latin, adjectives change their endings to agree with the noun they describe in 2 ways:
CASE (nom,acc,dat)NUMBER (sing,pl)

e.g. parvus puer ad forum ambulabat
a small boy was walking to the forum

The adjective has the same case and number as the noun it describes. There are 2 types of adjectives:
TYPE 1: Forms endings like 1st & 2nd declension
TYPE 2: Forms endings like 3rd declension
Adjectives of type 1&2 can agree with a noun of any declension in cse and number, but the 2 words do NOT need to have the same ending.
