## Supporting grades: 6

Khan Academy

Description: This video explains what the words term, factor, and coefficient mean. Think of an expression as a sentence. A sentence has parts, and so does an algebraic expression. And the reason why this is useful is when you hear other people refer to some expression and say, oh, I don't agree with the second term, or the third term has four factors, or why is the coefficient on that term 6, you'll know what they're talking about, and you can communicate in the same way. And the first thing I want to think about are the terms of an expression or what a term is. And one way to think about it is the terms are the things that are getting added and subtracted.
