This lesson is meant to be used as guided notes for an entire class. Students begin by defining a numerical expression. After some vocabulary review (sum, product, squared, cubed, etc.) the class begins translating verbal expressions into numerical expressions. Common mistakes are then discussed (7 less than, 3 more than, twice the sum of, etc.). Finally, students work backwards: we are given a numerical expression and asked to fill in blanks in order to write it as a verbal expression.
The included assignment is based off of the guided notes.
