In this lesson, Professor Perez demonstrates how to translate word statements into math equations, specifically sum and difference statements. Using a magical microphone, Charlie reads out various statements, and the professor shows how to translate them into mathematical equations. The order of the numbers is important, and the commutative property of addition is mentioned. The lesson concludes with a reminder to keep up with homework and a preview of the next lesson.
Sum and difference word statements are written using numbers and math symbols.
