Foundations of Algebra Objective How to represent quantities, patterns, and relationships Relate Properties to Algebra Toolbox Variable: is a symbol, usually a letter, that

represents a number Key Words: Addition Sum...Plus...more than...total...

increased by Ex. 5 + x the sum of 5 and a number x

5 more than a number x

5 increased by a number x Subtraction difference...minus...less than...

decreased by Ex. n - 7 the difference of a number n and 7

7 less than a number n

a number minus n Multiplication product...times...multiplied by...

of Ex. 4 x y or 4y the product of 4 and y

4 times a number y Division Quotient...Divided by Ex. n / 2 the quotient of n and 2

n divided by 2 Expression with two Operations Ex. 3 more than twice a number 3 more than twice a number

3 + 2x

3 +2x Ex. 9 less than the quotient of 6

and a number 6/ x - 9 the product of 4 and

the sum of a number x and 7 4 (x + 7) Algebra1 Classwork:

-simplify expressions with exponents

-use order of ops to evaluate expressions Powers have two parts:

1. base

2. exponent exponents tell how many

times you use the base 2 * 2* 2
