Need for Brackets in Algebra Simplify :

Suppose you want to subtract 3 from 9 (9 - 3 = 6)
and subtract the result from 20 (20 - 6 = 14).
How do you write it ?

If you write like 20 - 9 - 3,
it becomes wrong. why ?

Because it becomes subtracting 9 from 20 ( 20 - 9 = 11)
and then subtracting 3 from the result ( 11 - 3 = 8).
Instead of getting 14, you are getting 8.

To avoid this confusion, we write our
intended calculation as 20 - (9 - 3)
which conveys that we have to subtract
3 from 9 first and then subtract
the result from 20.

For the other way of calculating,
we may specify as (20 - 9) - 3.

Here we are using brackets (parentheses)
as grouping symbols and for priorotizing
the operation. (the operation in the
brackets is to be performed first).

Let us see one more example.

Suppose you want to add 5 and 8 (5 + 8 = 13)
and multiply the result with 4 ( 4 x 13 )
to get 52.

Writing this like 4 x 5 + 8 gives the result
as ( 4 x 5 = 20 and 20 + 8 = ) 28 which
is different from 52.

i.e. 4 x (5 + 8) = 4 x (13) = 52.
where as (4 x 5) + 8 = 20 + 8 = 28.

By using brackets, we specify how we
want to get the value of the expression.

Just as we use punctuation marks
in language to get correct
meaning of sentences, we use
brackets to get correct values
of expressions in mathematics.

From this discussion, it is clear that
In mathematical expressions
brackets usually convey two things :

(i) The operation in brackets is to be done first.
(ii) The expression in brackets is
to be treated as a single number.

Thus, brackets play a prominent role in Algebra Simplify.

Different types of Brackets and their order in Algebra Simplify

We may have to use more than
one bracket in an expression.

Then we use Small Brackets "( )" first,
Flower Brackets or Braces "{ }" as second
and Square Brackets "[ ]" as third.

While removing Brackets also,
the same order is followed.

First we remove Small Brackets "( )",
then Flower Brackets or Braces "{ }"
and then Square Brackets "[ ]".

Some people use Vinculum "¯"
as the first one folllowed by
Small Brackets "( )",
Flower Brackets or Braces "{ }"
and Square Brackets "[ ]"
in that order in putting and removing.

Vinculum "¯" is an over bar on the
entire expression which is to be
treated as a single unit.

Thus we use brackets in Algebra Simplify.

Progressive Learning of Math : Algebra Simplify

Recently, I have found a series of math curricula
(Both Hard Copy and Digital Copy) developed by a Lady Teacher
who taught everyone from Pre-K students to doctoral students
and who is a Ph.D. in Mathematics Education.

This series is very different and advantageous
over many of the traditional books available.
These give students tools that other books do not.
Other books just give practice.
These teach students “tricks” and new ways to think.

These build a student’s new knowledge of concepts
from their existing knowledge.
These provide many pages of practice that gradually
increases in difficulty and provide constant review.

These also provide teachers and parents with lessons
on how to work with the child on the concepts.

The series is low to reasonably priced and include
