Simplifying Algebraic Expressions

Students learn to simplify algebraic expressions by combining like terms and using algebraic properties such as the distributive property. They progress to more complex expressions involving variables and exponents. By Year 5, students simplify and manipulate algebraic expressions to solve equations, optimise solutions, and analyse functions in advanced algebra.

Simplifying Fractions

Initially, students learn to simplify fractions by finding the greatest common divisor. They practice converting improper fractions to mixed numbers and vice versa. By Year 5, students simplify complex algebraic fractions, applying their skills to solve equations and simplify expressions in algebra and calculus.

Simplifying Square Roots

Initially, students simplify square roots in basic arithmetic operations. They progress to using simplified square roots in solving geometry problems, such as finding the side lengths of right triangles, or in physics for calculations involving speed and area. By Year 5, students apply their skills in various fields requiring precise measurements and in solving quadratic equations.
