- HSA-SSE.A.1Interpret expressions that represent a quantity in terms of its context.*
- HSA-SSE.A.2Use the structure of an expression to identify ways to rewrite it. For example, see x<sup>4</sup> â y<sup>4</sup> as (x<sup>2</sup>)<sup>2</sup> â (y<sup>2</sup>)<sup>2</sup>, thus recognizing it as a difference of squares that can be factored as (x<sup>2</sup> â y<sup>2</sup>)(x<sup>2</sup> + y<sup>2</sup>).

HSA-SSE.A.1a

Interpret parts of an expression, such as terms, factors, and coefficients.

HSA-SSE.A.1b

Interpret complicated expressions by viewing one or more of their parts as a single entity. For example, interpret P(1+r)^{n} as the product of P and a factor not depending on P.
