order of Operations Order of operations tells us what order we are supposed to do things in a math problem. For example, what's the answer to this? 4 + 10 x 2 Do we do the 4 + 10 first? Or the 10 x 2 first? Here is the official order of operations: (1) Parenthesis
Numerical Expressions An expression that has a number in it
coeffecient A Coefficient is a number used to multiply a variable (4x means 4 times x, so 4 is a coefficient) Sometimes a letter stands in for the number: Example: ax2 + bx + c x is a variable a and b are coefficients c is a constant
term A Term is either a single number or a variable, or numbers and variables multiplied together.
expression An Expression is a group of terms (the terms are separated by + or − signs)
equation That equation says: what is on the left (x + 2) is equal to what is on the right (6) So an equation is like a statement "this equals that"
