Visual Expressions Worksheets
What are Visual Expressions? While mathematics is all about visuals, it is also an easy and effortless way to solve many mathematical problems. Mathematics is a subject that largely deals with numbers, expressions, and variables in order to solve a problem. It uses a combination of symbol, words, and numbers to represent information in an ordered manner. When it comes to visual expressions, they can help you solve complex and multi-steps problems very quickly within minutes. In mathematics, visual expressions are a representation of organizing, replacing, and extending methods of presentation. It uses a combination of different pictures, diagrams, numbers, variables, and symbols to create a comprehensive model or expression to represent the information wholly or partially. The best thing about visual expressions is that you get a clear and well-organized picture of the problem at hand and the visual expression helps you in solving it allowing your brain to use strategies while working on it.
Demonstrates how to look at models and create expressions. Practice problems are provided. Write the numerical expression for the models. Find the sum. Let one black tile equal +1 and one white tile equal -1. The black tile is equal to +1. There are 10 black tiles the value is 10. The white tile is equal to -1. There are 6 white tiles the value is -6. The sum will be 10+(-6) = 4View worksheet
