Simplifying an algebraic expression is a fundamental part of solving math problems. Get some practice putting an expression in simplest form by following along with this tutorial.

What are Like Terms?

Combining like terms together is a key part of simplifying mathematical expressions, so check out this tutorial to see how you can easily pick out like terms from an expression

What is Simplest Form?

Sometimes what's simple for some is hard for others, and so simple seems like a pretty subjective word. But when it comes to algebra, the simplest form of an expressions is very well defined and is very specific- there's really nothing that subjective about it. So watch this tutorial and see exactly what simplest form means!

What's a Coefficient?

There is a bunch of vocabulary that you just need to know when it comes to algebra, and coefficient is one of the key words that you have to feel 100% comfortable with. Check out the tutorial and let us know if you want to learn more about coefficients!

What is a Constant?

Constants are parts of algebraic expressions that don't change. Check out this tutorial to see exactly what a constant looks like and why it doesn't change.

What is a Term in a Polynomial?

Polynomials are those expressions that have variables raised to all sorts of powers and multiplied by all types of numbers. When you work with polynomials you need to know a bit of vocabulary, and one of the words you need to feel comfortable with is 'term'. So check out this tutorial, where you'll learn exactly what a 'term' in a polynomial is all about.
