Module by: Wade Ellis, Denny Burzynski. E-mail the authors

 Name: Algebraic Expressions and Equations: Combining Polynomials Using Addition and Subtraction ID: m21854 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: understand the concept of like terms, be able to combine like terms, be able to simplify expressions containing parentheses.
