Solving First Degree, Single Variable Algebraic Expressions
Middle schoolers will identify the parts of an algebraic expression by telling the number of terms in one expression. Then they will collect like terms and solve three problems. Next, they will complete a table involving three sets of algebra tile displays, evaluating each with a given value of x.

Evaluate One-Step Algebraic Expressions by Substitution
How do algebra learners know the value of an algebraic expression that contains a variable? This video shows your number crunchers how to evaluate an algebraic expression by substituting a given number for the variable. In fact, it models an algebraic expression where the value of the variable changes and demonstrates how this changes the value of the expression.

How Do You Simplify an Algebraic Fraction by Canceling Common Factors?
Use prime factorization to simplify this algebraic fraction. When the factorization is done then cancel out all values in which a value from the numerator and a value from the denominator equal 1. And what is left over is then the simplified form of the algebraic fraction.
