About This Chapter

The state of Ohio uses the OAE Mathematics test to assess the knowledge of those seeking licensure as a math teacher. Study and review algebraic expressions through this chapter's lessons in preparation for passing the test.

OAE Mathematics: Algebraic Expressions - Chapter Summary

In this chapter, you'll find tools and techniques for using algebraic expressions. Watch each of the chapter's online lessons and re-discover the rules for simplifying and building algebraic expressions. The ample opportunities could enhance your performance on the OAE Mathematics examination. Study this chapter for assistance with:

  • Reading and choosing the correct mathematics formulas
  • Expressing relationships and solving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division expressions
  • Evaluating algebraic expressions and using the order of operations
  • Using the distributive property and negative signs
  • Combining like terms, adding variables and solving sample problems

As you progress through these convenient, comprehensive video lessons and review the topics on algebraic expressions, you could develop the knowledge required to correctly answer relevant questions on the OAE Mathematics examination. Your submitted questions will be answered by experienced instructors who are dedicated to helping you learn. You could benefit from video tags that allow you to watch parts of the lessons as many times as necessary as well as corresponding text transcripts. Self-assessment quizzes and a practice chapter examination can be used to test your understanding of algebraic expressions.

OAE Mathematics: Algebraic Expressions Chapter Objectives

You'll be required to answer 150 multiple-choice questions on the computer-based OEA Mathematics examination. The test will last approximately four hours and 15 minutes, during which time your ability to understand algebraic expressions and other mathematical concepts will be assessed. You must demonstrate expertise in content areas that include geometry, trigonometry, calculus and algebra in order to pass the test and qualify for a mathematics endorsement.

Test your knowledge with a 30-question chapter practice test
Understanding and Evaluating Math Formulas

1. Understanding and Evaluating Math Formulas

With all the formulas out there, how do you know which one to pick? And how do you read formulas anyways? Watch this video lesson and you will find the answers to these questions.

Expressing Relationships as Algebraic Expressions

2. Expressing Relationships as Algebraic Expressions

What do you do when you don't know what a number is but you do know how it relates to something else? You use an algebraic expression. In this lesson, we'll learn how to express relationships as algebraic expressions.

Evaluating Simple Algebraic Expressions

3. Evaluating Simple Algebraic Expressions

In this lesson, we'll learn how to evaluate algebraic expressions, which involves substituting numbers for variables and following the order of operations. By the end of the lesson, you'll be an algebraic expression expert.

The Distributive Property and Algebraic Expressions

4. The Distributive Property and Algebraic Expressions

The order of operations is great. But sometimes we need to bend the rules to simplify an equation. Fortunately, the distributive property gives us a scenario in which this is okay. Learn all about it in this lesson.

Combining Like Terms in Algebraic Expressions

5. Combining Like Terms in Algebraic Expressions

When you have an algebraic expression that's much too long, it would be great if you could simplify it. That's when knowing how to combine like terms comes in. In this lesson, we'll learn the process of combining like terms and practice simplifying expressions.

Practice Simplifying Algebraic Expressions

6. Practice Simplifying Algebraic Expressions

In this lesson, we'll practice simplifying a variety of algebraic expressions. We'll use two key concepts, combining like terms and the distributive property, to help us simplify.

Negative Signs and Simplifying Algebraic Expressions

7. Negative Signs and Simplifying Algebraic Expressions

Don't let negative signs get you down. In this lesson, we'll stay positive as we practice simplifying algebraic expressions that have those tricky negative signs.
