Combining Like Terms


In our Combining Like Terms lesson plan, students learn how to combine like terms in algebraic expressions. Students complete practice problems in which they simplify terms by combining using the methods taught in this lesson.


Our Combining Like Terms lesson plan introduces students to the process of combining like terms, along with how and when it’s used and gives them ample practice doing it themselves. Combining Like Terms is a process used to simplify an expression or an equation using addition and subtraction of the coefficients of the terms as well as constants. During this lesson, students are asked to complete problems in which they simplify expressions using what they have learned in this lesson.

At the end of this lesson, students will understand the concept of combining like terms in algebraic expressions.
