Multiplying and dividing terms
Algebra (Year 8)
Year 8
This is another video in this awesome series on Algebra at a Year 8 level. Looking at multiplying and dividing terms, I break down the idea of using expanded form (and lots of kissy kissy's) to reorder and make the concept of multiplying terms much, much easier! I then move onto division and show how we can use the idea of anything divided by itself being one to make cancelling terms much easier too. There are lots of worked examples and the theory is presented in my own unique way.
