Expressions and Equations

If you think about maths as a language, expressions and equations are the sentences. This unit brings students into the world of “maths language”, learning how to write complex expressions in different forms and convert numbers in one form to another (i.e.decimals to fractions). Last, students will apply the order of operations to interpret and solve simple algebraic equations.
