GCSE Maths Revision - New Maths Syllabus

Learn the key facts for Algebraic Notation to nail your Maths exam!

AQA and OCR, it is key that you understand algebraic notation. Here we’ll take you through

all the information you need to know, helping you to easily understand what algebraic

notation is and how to use it.

In Maths, algebraic notation is very important and is seen as the language of

Mathematics.

Algebraic notation is a way of investigating the relationships between different quantities.

These quantities are represented by letters and/or symbols and you have to understand this

language of letters and symbols in order to understand and revise the new GCSE maths

syllabus.

The key reasons for using algebraic notation in maths are:

● To help break down wordy problems into simpler, more manageable equations which

are faster to work out

● To create a formula that does not need to change for each varying problem and can

be fixed except for the letters and what values they represent

● So equations are not limited by only one set of values and can make sense with

many different sets of numbers which have the same relations
