Expand Linear Expressions with Fractions Using the Distributive Property

This Expand Linear Expressions with Fractions Using the Distributive Property video also includes:

Show algebra learners that expanding linear expressions with fractions using the distributive property is the same as with whole numbers, it just takes perseverance. The first example is easy to model and multiply by one-half. However, the second example uses the distributive property on two quantities. Stop the video and show the missing steps so learners understand how the fractions were calculated. There is an extra problem in the extension activities for students who are struggling. The extra work done here will pay off in future math classes.
