Abstract

This is the fourth article in the series, Introduction to Algebra. The first one looked at algebra as a ‘pattern language’ and focused on noticing patterns and expressing patterns using terms and expressions. The second one looked at algebra as a ‘design language’ and focused on expressing designs using algebraic language. The third one explored solving simple equations using the ‘balance approach’ and the ‘machine approach.’ However, the topic of equations is vast and gets steadily more complex as the student progresses through higher algebra. Similarly, the topic of solving and simplifying expressions of higher degree steadily grows in complexity.
