Phrases to Algebraic Expressions
Teaches you to translate from a phrase to an algebraic expression. Example: '3 added to x' becomes 'x + 3'. Warning: This topic can be very frustrating unless you pay close attention! This is a very literal topic. For example, '3 subtracted from x' only translates to 'x - 3', and '3 added to x' only translates to 'x + 3'. '3 added to x' does not translates to '3 + x' even though that is an equivalent expression. You can only succeed if you take the phrases very literally.
