Chapter 4 Lesson 1 – Distributive Property

Students will learn how to apply the Distributive property and simplify variable expressions by combining like terms. Special emphasis is placed on knowing how to determine when terms are “like terms.” Many examples are explained as simplifying variable expressions is critical to understanding other areas of algebra.

• Distributive Property
• Simplifying by Combining Like Terms

If there is a will there is a way…never stop working on your dreams!

Good work you finished the first lesson!
You should be able to:

* understand why we need the distributive property

* apply the distributive property to multiplication problems

* apply the distributive property to expressions that involve variables


Let’s finish this short but important chapter by looking at like terms.

Hello John, I am writing to thank you. During the Summer I took and passed all of my GED courses with the exception of the Math test. I found your free math course online and listened and watched all of the videos, trying to educate myself utilizing the tools and tips that you provided. I have to admit, it was very overwhelming and at times I felt as though I was being taught in a foreign language. I scheduled my re-test earlier this week and I passed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It took me 22 years to feel confident enough to achieve this goal and I am forever grateful to you for offering this information online. You are heaven sent! Now I can apply for better paying jobs and attend college. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping others change their lives for the better!!” Sincerely, Alicia
