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.
