## Flashcard Content Overview

This flashcard set covers some basic vocabulary terms in algebra, including variable, coefficient, term and constant. It will also help you visualize what these words mean in relation to the different parts of an algebraic equation. As you'll see these vocabulary terms many times during your algebra studies, it's important to know what they mean when approaching a set of directions or new material.

Algebra involves more than just numbers. It also includes working with letters and symbols. But what do those letters in an algebraic equation mean? Is the letter always the same? How do you distinguish between numbers that stand alone and numbers that stand next to letters in an equation? Most importantly, do you know what mathematical symbol transforms a group of numbers into an equation?

If some of these questions have left you scratching your head, don't worry; after studying this flashcard set, you will have a clear understanding of some basic algebra vocabulary terms.
