PERT: Algebraic Expressions Objectives
This PERT: Algebraic Expressions chapter can prepare you to answer questions on the math subtest of the exam. Review the lessons to refresh your understanding of algebraic expressions, then gauge your comprehension with self-assessment quizzes and a chapter exam. Full video transcripts are available that offer easily identifiable vocabulary words to help deepen your understanding of the lessons.
The computer-adaptive test is designed to ensure 11th-grade students in Florida are on track for attending college, while helping to determine which courses they should take. The math subtest, which is one of three total subtests, consists of 30 multiple-choice questions and requires a minimum score of 114. Not earning this minimum could mean being placed in a remedial 12th-grade class. The test is a graduation requirement.
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. How to Simplify Expressions with Exponents
In this video, we will put all of the exponent properties we have learned together. Don't let lots of numbers and letters confuse you! Simplifying exponents can be easy and fun!
5. Solving Equations Containing Parentheses
When we have parentheses in our equations it changes the way we solve them. Now we have an added step to do to remove those parentheses. Watch this video lesson to learn how it is done.
6. How to Simplify Expressions with Integers
After watching this video lesson, you will be able to simplify any integer expression by following the order of operations. Learn what to watch for and in what order to do your operations.
