---|---|

Varbiable | an unknown value that is represented by a letter of a symbol |

Expression | an algebraic form consisting of numbers, variables and operation signs |

Terms | algebraic forms which are separated by + or – signs, (the signs being included) |

Like Terms | terms with exactly the same variable form |

Constant Term | a term which does not contain a variable |

Coefficient | the number factor of an algebraic term |

Sum | the sum of two or numbers is obtained by adding them |

Quotient | the quotient of two numbers is the first one mentioned divided by the second |

Expand | removing brackets |

Simplify | to make less complicated by collecting terms |

Factorize | is the process of finding the factors: (finding what to multiply together to get an expression) |

Linear Relationship | a relationship between two sets of variables that can be represented with a straight line on a graph |

Non-Linear Relationship | a relationship between two sets of variables that cannot be represented with a straight line on a graph |

Function | an equation for which any input (x) that is plugged into the equation will yield exactly one output out of the equation. (eg 2x = y) |
