Interpret Expressions




 

Videos and lessons to help High School students learn to interpret expressions that represent a quantity in terms of its context.

A. Interpret parts of an expression, such as terms, factors, and coefficients.

B. Interpret complicated expressions by viewing one or more of their parts as a single entity. For example, interpret P(1+r)n as the product of P and a factor not depending on P.

Suggested Learning Targets


  • Identify the different parts of the expression, such as terms, factors, and coefficients, bases, exponents, and constant.
  • Explain the meaning of the part in relationship to the entire expression and to the context of the problem.
  • Decompose expressions and make sense of the multiple factors and terms by explaining the meaning of the individual parts.
  • Understand that the product of two binomials is the sum of monomial terms. For example the product of (3x + 2) and (x - 5) is the sum of 3x2 ,-13x, and -10.
