Grade 9 (1D)‎ > ‎

Unit 1 - Number Sense & Algebra (Ch. 1, 2, 4)

In this unit we will discover polynomials and higher-order expressions. We'll talk about exponents, the rules of exponents, and discover what it means to "solve for the unknown" in an equation. Furthermore, we will discover what the difference is between an expression and an equation.                                                                  Unit Outlines & Homework Lists  View Online
