Lesson Summary:

In this lesson on Combining Like Terms, students are taught how to simplify algebraic expressions by adding or subtracting terms with the same variables raised to the same power. By combining the coefficients of the like terms, learners can reduce the expression to its simplest form. The lesson emphasizes the importance of understanding that the value of the variable is unknown but that the expression remains the same when like terms are combined.

Lesson Description:

Combining like terms - Linear terms

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.
