This video takes an initial look at all the language we are going to need for this module on Algebra. Term, constant, coefficient, pronumeral, variable, expression and equation are just some of the words we are going to use. Each of the above words and a whole lot more is explained in this awesome video about algebra. Lots of worked examples are used throughout the lesson. If you want to know about algebra and learn it correctly, then this is the video for you!
This video continues the series on Algebra and looks at what it means to substitute into an expression (or equation!) and how to find the value by using BIDMAS/BODMAS. There are lots of worked examples and lots of theory to help you completely understand why you are doing this. There is also reference to Soccer and Footie!
This video take a look at the Year 7 Algebra section on Equivalent expressions. We have already taken the time to look at what an expression is (something without an equals sign). This looks at all the ways we can trick you to make expressions which ARE equivalent look different. There are lots of worked examples shown and it's all linked to theory.
Previous videos have looked at the language of algebra. This video looks at what it means to be like terms. We learn that so long as terms have the same letter, we can group them (or add them together!). There are a number of worked examples and some awesome theory with relates everything to going to the supermarket!
Multiplying and dividing expressions is a really important skill in Algebra. This video takes you through how to multiply and divide expressions. It looks at how we cancel down fractions using algebra and how we need to avoid all the tricks which can be put in your way. There are lots of worked example which are fully explained to allow you to success in algebra.
Expanding brackets is one of the most important things we can learn to do with Algebra. This video takes a look at not just how to expand brackets, but why we need to. It takes a number of approaches which will guarantee that you understanding how to do this! It is a great video to show you how to get ready for Year 10 Maths and Binomial Expansion.
