# 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.

• ### Basic Lesson

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) = 4

• ### Intermediate Lesson

Explains how to use a number line to translate expressions. Practice problems are provided. Use a number line to help you find each sum. 1 + (-4) On the number line, mark 1 and add -4 to it, the answer is -3.
