The Commutative and Associative Properties and Algebraic Expressions

1. The Commutative and Associative Properties and Algebraic Expressions

The order of operations is important and useful, but a few mathematical properties highlight cases where order doesn't matter. In this lesson, we'll learn about the commutative and associative properties, which may save you time and effort.

Distributive Property: Definition, Use & Examples

2. Distributive Property: Definition, Use & Examples

After completing this lesson, you will be able to state the distributive property and apply it to various types of problems. You will also be able to accurately perform the mathematical operations that are involved with the distributive property.

The Distributive Property and Algebraic Expressions

3. 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.

Practice Simplifying Algebraic Expressions

4. 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.

Writing and Classifying True, False and Open Statements in Math

5. Writing and Classifying True, False and Open Statements in Math

In math you need to be able to know whether a statement is true, false, or open. In this lesson, you'll learn how to classify and write true, false, or open statements.

Solving Equations Using the Addition Principle

6. Solving Equations Using the Addition Principle

In algebra, we have certain principles that we use to help us solve equations quickly and easily. The addition principle is one of them. Watch this video lesson to learn how you can apply it to solve your equations.

Solving Equations Using the Multiplication Principle

7. Solving Equations Using the Multiplication Principle

When it comes to solving equations in algebra, one of the essential skills you need is the ability to multiply. Watch this video lesson to learn how you can use the multiplication principle to isolate your variable.

Solving Problems With the Guess, Check & Revise Method

8. Solving Problems With the Guess, Check & Revise Method

In this lesson, we will look at how to solve problems using the guess, check, and revise method in mathematics. Through examples, we will look at each step involved and see exactly how this process works.

What is an Inequality?

9. What is an Inequality?

Deciding how to spend your money can be a tricky thing. Should you save it, invest it, or enjoy it? Learn how inequalities can help you make your decision!

How to Graph 1- and 2-Variable Inequalities

10. How to Graph 1- and 2-Variable Inequalities

So an inequality is just an equation with a less than or greater than symbol. But what is the difference between 1 and 2 variable inequalities? What does have a greater than or equal to symbol change? When do you use a number line instead of a coordinate plane? Get those answers here!

Graphing Inequalities: Practice Problems

11. Graphing Inequalities: Practice Problems

If you're already pretty familiar with what inequalities are and just looking for a place to practice your skills, this is the place. This lesson covers topics like 1-variable, 2-variable, compound, and systems of inequalities.

Solving Linear Inequalities: Practice Problems

12. Solving Linear Inequalities: Practice Problems

Linear inequalities may look intimidating, but they're really not much different than linear equations. In this lesson, we'll practice solving a variety of linear inequalities.
