Educational details

Educational value
  • This resource is valuable for students who are learning or revising linear algebraic expressions. The resource is specifically designed to aid students' understanding of linear algebraic expressions.
  • It is also most useful in relation to the Australian Curriculum content description in year 8 mathematics that refers to solving problems involving simplifying algebraic expressions involving the four operations.
  • The resource may be useful in helping students achieve that element of the year 8 achievement standard referring to simplifying a variety of algebraic expressions. It may also be relevant in relation to the learning continuum of the numeracy general capability that includes choosing and using a range of strategies (including mental and written strategies and digital technologies) in calculations to solve complex problems in authentic situations.
