              Writing Formulae

              Students learn how to write mathematical formulae using written descriptions.  As learning progresses students begin to associate mathematical operations with keywords such as total, difference, shared between and product.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to write a formula involving the sum and difference of two or more terms.
              • Most students should be able to write a formula involving the product and quotient of two of more terms.
              • Some students should be able to write a formula involving a products, quotients, differences and sums.
