High School Algebra: Algebraic Expressions and Equations - Chapter Summary

There are a full range of algebraic expressions and equations to learn, but to do so you must first know the basics of how to read these problems and what steps to take to find the answers. This chapter has been designed to review this foundational knowledge, which you will need to know before you can move on to more advanced mathematical topics.

You may already know some of the basics, and you can assess how much you recall by answering questions found on the lesson quizzes. For topics you don't remember as well, you can use the chapter menu to go directly to those lessons. Each lesson focuses on a single topic, so you can easily find the information you need to review. A flashcard set lets you test your knowledge of algebra terms. When you have finished this chapter, you should be ready to do the following:

• Review the proper way to write and set up arithmetic expressions
• Show how to comprehend and analyze math problems
• Determine relationships with algebraic expressions
• Establish simple algebraic expressions
