Algebraic expressions are made up of letters and numbers. We call the letter the unknown. When a letter and number are together, such as 2b, we call this a term. When we simplify algebraic expressions we collect the like terms together.
Worksheets 13 and 14 have been especially designed for the new 9-1 GCSE curriculum.
Simplifying Expressions Worksheets Example 2
Algebraic pyramid type exercises work well when learning how to simplify expressions. How the pyramids work is by adding the two blocks, or bricks, which are below. Teachers may even want to make up their own pyramids from a sheet of blank prymaids. You can omit or delete any block to make the problem more difficult, or you can include fractions, decimals and negatives alongside the algebraic expression for more advanced students.
