Just would like some help on getting my understanding on the right footing on certain terms.
Math can be displayed in its raw form in these methods:
A balanced expression; such that, it has two expressions on each side.
I would use algorithm to describe this term, because it is essentially an expression with an input. It has its own rules under geometry/calculus on how it must behave.
- algorithm (synonym minus the constraints a function has)
almost like a functions except with more than one input. Granted a function can have more than one variable, however, the 'function' still obeys the input output behavior designated by its definition.
- expression (synonym?)
- polynomials (synonym?)
Anyone critique or inform me on any of those or those I have left out. Much appreciated

As a specific example of a function that has no algorithm, suppose we flip a fair coin one time for each natural number. Most of the time the resulting bitstring will be random; that is, not compressible to a smaller string. That's a function that has no algorithm.
