# Ch 12: Algebraic Word Problems

Watch video lessons to strengthen your knowledge of algebraic word problems. Improve your skills in solving multi-step problems, using graphs to answer word problems, working with algebraic expressions and more.

## Algebraic Word Problems - Chapter Summary

The engaging video lessons in this chapter will refresh your skills in solving algebraic word problems and perhaps teach you some new strategies for simplifying the process. Instructors explain how to use math manipulatives, coordinate planes and scatter plots with word problems. You'll also practice solving problems using algebraic expressions. After you've studied the chapter's videos, you'll be able to:

• Identify the steps to solving word problems
• Solve more complex word problems involving multiple steps
• Use images and notes to restate word problems
• Increase comprehension by personalizing word problems
• Solve word problems using math manipulatives
• Use a coordinate plane's plotted data to solve word problems
• Answer word problems using scatter plots
• Solve word problems with algebraic addition and subtraction expressions
• Answer problems using algebraic multiplication and division expressions

Typically lasting under 10 minutes, our videos contain a jump feature in the timeline so you can go back and rewatch example problems or explanations. You can also study transcripts of the videos, which highlight key terms and offer an alternative way to learn to solve word problems. Once you're ready, take the multiple-choice lessons quizzes to gauge your comprehension of the material.
