# Write Mathematical Expressions

- 5th Grade MathFifth graders are now comfortable with elementary math operations - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. It is time to take things up a notch by introducing children to the amazing world of algebra. Children use numbers, operators and symbols to represent and practice math calculations.

**What’s inside?**

- Write simple algebraic expressions by interpreting math phrases.

- Recognize the concept of variables and use them in a math expression.

- Understand easy word problems and write math expressions (or equations) to represent them.

**Real-World Application**

We form math expressions in our minds every day. From splitting a bill at a restaurant to shopping for a DIY project, most of our activities that involve numbers require us to form math expressions.

**What’s next?**

Having learned to write math expressions, fifth graders can now learn to evaluate math expressions.

#### Cool Fact

Do you know there is a relation between basketball and algebra? A professor at Davidson College developed an algebraic formula to optimize a basketball shot. The formula gives you the right angle, speed and distance for a shot every time.
