### Marrying Math & Art Project

1. 1. Expressing Ourselves Mathematicallyby Justice Adams
2. 2. “Hi Pal. Areyou ready forthe new schoolyear?”“As ready asI’m going tobe, I guess. I’mnot very goodin math.”
3. 3. “What’s theproblem?”“I heard that I’dhave to learnaboutexpressions, andI never knew thatmath could talk.”
4. 4. “Oh no, Silly.Math can’t talk,but it can infact beexpressed.”“Can youplease explainthat?”
5. 5. “Sure. First of all, thebranch of mathematicsthat involvesexpressions withvariables is calledalgebra. A combinationof numbers, variables,and at least oneoperation is called analgebraic expression.”“Swell. Ididn’t knowthat!”
6. 6. “The numericalfactor of amultiplicationexpression thatcontains a variableis called acoefficient.”“So 6 is thecoefficient of6m?”
7. 7. “Yes! And a variable isa symbol, usually aletter, that is used torepresent an unknownquantity in mathematicalexpressions orsentences.”“Cool.”
8. 8. “An example is7y–3b. We’ll let yrepresent 3 and brepresent 5.7(3)–3(5)21–15 = 6”“So5 + (12-3)a, wherea is 12, would equal113?”
9. 9. “Correct!!!”“All thanks toyou!!! I’m readyto tackle thosealgebraicexpressions!”
