Use the structure of an expression to identify ways to rewrite it. For example, see 𝑥⁴ – 𝑦⁴ as (𝑥²)² – (𝑦²)², thus recognizing it as a difference of squares that can be factored as (𝑥² – 𝑦²)(𝑥² + 𝑦²).
Interpret expressions that represent a quantity in terms of its context.
Interpret the structure of expressions, write expressions in equivalent forms to solve problems, perform arithmetic operations on functions, and understand the relationship between zeros and factors of polynomials.
