Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, students learn how to transfer a verbal expression to an algebraic expression by identifying keywords that indicate mathematical operations such as addition, multiplication, division, and subtraction. The teacher provides an example of solving a problem using the keywords and shows how to translate them into algebraic expressions. By the end of the lesson, students should be able to write algebraic expressions for verbal expressions using their understanding of keywords and mathematical operations.

Lesson Description:

Transferring a verbal expression to an algebraic expression

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
