View the content: Algebraic Expressions and Equations: Algebraic Expressions

 Name: Algebraic Expressions and Equations: Algebraic Expressions ID: m18875 Language: English (en) Summary: This module is from Elementary Algebra by Denny Burzynski and Wade Ellis, Jr. Operations with algebraic expressions and numerical evaluations are introduced in this chapter. Coefficients are described rather than merely defined. Special binomial products have both literal and symbolic explanations and since they occur so frequently in mathematics, we have been careful to help the student remember them. In each example problem, the student is "talked" through the symbolic form. Objectives of this module: be familiar with algebraic expressions, understand the difference between a term and a factor, be familiar with the concept of common factors, know the function of a coefficient. Subject: Mathematics and Statistics Keywords: algebra, algebraic expressions, coefficients, elementary, factors, terms License: Creative Commons Attribution License CC-BY 2.0 Authors: Copyright Holders: Maintainers: Latest version: 1.6 (history) First publication date: Dec 8, 2008 4:47 pm +0000 Last revision to module: Jun 18, 2010 2:20 pm +0000
