2 Table of Contents Learning Objectives Simplifying Fractions Simplifying Polynomials Simplifying Rational Expressions The Distributive Property Practice /09/12lntaylor © 6

3 Learning Objectives LO 1Understand the difference between expressions and equations TOC LO 2Correctly simplify expressions containing fractions and exponents LO 3Correctly use the principle of CLT – combine like terms 08/09/12lntaylor ©

4 Definitions Definition 1Expressions do not contain = ≠ ≤ ≥ TOC Definition 2Fractions are rational numbers consisting of a numerator and denominator i.e. ¼, ½, ¾ Definition 3Terms are numbers, letters and exponents, or a combination of these things, separated by an operand symbol ( +, −, ∗, ÷) Example 08/09/12lntaylor © 2x + 3 where 2x and 3 are both terms 3x 2 ÷ x where 3x 2 and x are both terms
