- Understand the different forms of representation: Familiarize yourself with numerical, algebraic, geometric, and verbal representations, and practice converting between them.
- Practice translating between representations: Work on problems that involve translating a mathematical concept from one form of representation to another, such as converting a verbal description into an algebraic equation.
- Use visual aids: Utilize visual representations such as diagrams, graphs, and geometric figures to reinforce your understanding of mathematical concepts.
- Solve word problems: Practice solving word problems that require interpreting verbal representations and translating them into mathematical expressions or equations.
- Review examples: Study examples of different forms of representation in mathematics, and identify the key components and relationships within each representation.

Algebra: Writing, interpreting, and using mathematical expressions and equations

Students write mathematical expressions and equations that correspond to given situations, they evaluate expressions, and they use expressions and formulas to solve problems. They understand that variables represent numbers whose exact values are not yet specified, and they use variables appropriately. Students understand that expressions in different forms can be equivalent, and they can rewrite an expression to represent a quantity in a different way (e.g., to make it more compact or to feature different information). Students know that the solutions of an equation are the values of the variables that make the equation true. They solve simple one-step equations by using number sense, properties of operations, and the idea of maintaining equality on both sides of an equation. They construct and analyze tables (e.g., to show quantities that are in equivalent ratios), and they use equations to describe simple relationships (such as 3x = y) shown in a table.
