              Expanding Brackets and Collecting Like Terms

              Students learn how to find the sum and difference of two algebraic expressions by expanding brackets.  Learning progresses from working with linear to non-linear terms and writing the area of composite shapes as simplified algebraic expressions.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to simplify the sum of two brackets with linear terms.
              • Most students should be able to find the sum and difference of two or more brackets.
              • Some students should be able to find the sum and difference of two or more brackets with non-linear terms.
