- 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^{4} – y^{4} as (x^{2})^{2} – (y^{2})^{2}, thus recognizing it as a difference of squares that can be factored as (x^{2} – y^{2})(x^{2} + y^{2}).
