Algebra Vocabulary

This game is designed to give students practice on BASIC algebra vocabulary such as variable, equation etc.

Open SentenceMathematical sentences with one or more variables. It is neither true nor false.
Solution SetA set of numbers that make an open sentence true when they replace the variable.
Replacement SetA set of numbers from which replacements for a variable may be chosen.
ElementThis is what each object or numbers in a set is called.
SetThis is a collection of objects or numbers often shown by using braces.
EquationA mathematical sentence containing an =.
InequalityA mathematical sentence having the symbols < or >.
Order of OperationsA rule that lets you know which operations to perform first when evaluating an expression or equation.
Sequencenumbers that form a pattern
VariablesThese are letters that are used to represent numbers.
Algebraic ExpressionThis consists of one or more numbers and variables along with one or more arithmetic operations.
FactorsThe quantities that are multiplied together in an expression.
ProductThe result of a multiplication problem.
EvaluateFind the value of an expression
BaseIn a power, the number that is multiplied by itself repeatedly
ExponentIn a power, this indicates the number of times the base is used as a factor.
Additive Identity Property5+0=5
Multiplicative Inverse Property4 * 1/4 = 1
Multiplictive Property of Zero12(0) = 0
Multiplicative Identity Property1 * 23 = 23
Reflexive Property of Equality3(2) = 3(2)
Symmetric Property of EqualityIf 15 = 13 + 2, then 13 + 2 = 15
Transitive Property of EqualityIf 14 = 7 * 2 and 7 * 2 = 8 + 3 * 2, the 14 = 8 + 3 * 2
Substitution Property of Equality22 * 3 - 15 = 66 - 15
Distributive Propertya(b + c) = ab + ac
TermA number, a variable or the product or quotient of numbers and variables
Like TermsTerms that contain the same variables with corresponding variables having the same power
Simplify an expressionNo () and no like terms in the expression
CoefficientThe numerical factor in a term (for ex. 23 in 23ab)
Commutative Property of Addition2 + 6 = 6 + 2
Associative Property of Addition2 + (a + d) = (2 + a) + d
Commutative Property of Mult.xy = yx
Associative Property of Mult.2(3b) = (2*3)b
