Expanding Algebraic Expressions

Students learn how to expand algebraic expression from a set of brackets.  As learning progresses they find the sum and difference of two or more sets of brackets with positive and negative terms.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to expand a pair of brackets with a constant on the outside.
  • Most students should be able to expand two pairs of brackets and simplify the result.
  • Some students should be able to expand two pairs of brackets one with a negative on the outside.
