  • I can write two equivalent expressions for a problem situation and show that they are equivalent.
  • I can show that two expressions are or are NOT equivalent and justify my answer through algebra, tables and graphs.
  • I can combine expressions to solve for problem situations (Profit, expense, income problems).
  • I can factor out the greatest common monomial of expressions and use the factors to solve problem situations.
