Evaluating Simple Algebraic Expressions

1. 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.

Why Do We Distribute in Algebra? - Explanation & Examples

2. Why Do We Distribute in Algebra? - Explanation & Examples

What's the purpose of distribution in algebra? In this lesson, we'll find out why we distribute. We'll also look at examples and sample problems that involve basic distribution.

Distributing First vs. Adding First: Differences & Examples

3. Distributing First vs. Adding First: Differences & Examples

When we need to simplify an expression, how do we know if we should distribute first or add first? In this lesson, we'll look at when this matters and how to make the best decision.

Distributing Algebraic Expressions with Numbers and Variables

4. Distributing Algebraic Expressions with Numbers and Variables

So, you can simplify an algebraic expression when you need to distribute a number? Great! But what if you need to distribute a variable or a variable with an exponent? Learn how in this lesson.

Distribution of More Than One Term in Algebra

5. Distribution of More Than One Term in Algebra

Once we've mastered distributing a single term, it's time to raise the stakes. In this lesson, we'll learn how about distribution involving two, three and even more terms.

Inverse Operations in Math: Definition & Examples

6. Inverse Operations in Math: Definition & Examples

In mathematics, inverse operations are operations that 'undo' each other. Most operations have an inverse. This lesson describes the most common operations and their inverses, and it provides some examples and a quiz to cement your knowledge.

How to Solve a Rational Equation

7. How to Solve a Rational Equation

A rational equation is one that contains fractions. Yes, we will be finding a common denominator that has 'x's. But no worries! Together we will use a process that will help us solve rational equations every time!

Writing & Solving Multiplication Word Problems with One Variable

8. Writing & Solving Multiplication Word Problems with One Variable

After watching this video lesson, you should be able to take a multiplication word problem and translate it into an algebraic expression that you can solve. You will also learn how to solve these problems from the expressions that you write.

Writing & Solving Division Word Problems with One Variable

9. Writing & Solving Division Word Problems with One Variable

After watching this video lesson, you should be able to solve word problems that involve the division operator. Learn how to write your math problem using an algebraic expression and then solve it.

Translating Math Sentences to Inequalities

10. Translating Math Sentences to Inequalities

Watch this video lesson to learn how you can easily translate math sentences into inequalities. Once you know how to do this, solving word problems becomes that much easier.

Solving One-Step Linear Inequalities

11. Solving One-Step Linear Inequalities

In this video lesson, you will learn how you can solve any kind of linear inequality that only requires one step. Learn when you need to subtract, when you need to add, when you need to multiply, and when you need to divide.

Graphing Inequalities: Practice Problems

12. 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.
