**Learning Objectives LO 1**

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

**Definitions Definition 1 Expressions do not contain = ≠ < > ≤ ≥**

Fractions are rational numbers consisting of a numerator and denominator i.e. ¼ , ½ , ¾ Definition 3 Terms are numbers, letters and exponents, or a combination of these things, separated by an operand symbol (+, −, ∗, ÷) Example 2x + 3 where 2x and 3 are both terms 3x2÷ x where 3x2 and x are both terms 08/09/12 lntaylor © TOC
