In this lesson, students are taught how to write algebraic expressions from word problems, as well as how to solve and check algebraic equations with variables on both sides. The instructor breaks down how to find the sum of four consecutive odd integers as an algebraic expression in x, and simplifies the expression for better understanding. Additionally, the lesson provides examples of how to solve equations step by step and check the solutions to avoid errors.
