In this unit, students begin to learn how to substitute values into expressions and formulae. The unit starts by looking at how to create expressions to solve problems, and then looks at how to substitute positive values into simple expressions, and then expressions involving brackets and powers, before moving on to substitute in negative numbers. The unit goes on to look at formulae, starting with how to derive a formula and then substituting numbers into word formulae and algebraic formulae.
