              Multiplying and Dividing with Algebra

              Students learn about multiplying and dividing with algebra using the correct notation.  More able students are challenged to use index notation and brackets.At the start of the lesson students recap simplifying expressions by collecting like terms.  In the main part they learn the correct notation for writing expressions involving multiplications and division.  At the end they are match three equivalent expressions with different notations.
