@FactChecker's suggestion is a good one, IMO.

The list above is a rough start, but most of the divisions are too broad to be very helpful.
We could include with "simplify fraction" these operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of rational expressions. Simplifying algebraic fractions usually means removing common factors from the numerator and denominator, and these depend on knowledge of factoring and least common multiple.

"Algebraic expression" could include lots of topics, including linear and quadratic expressions, rational expressions, expressions with radicals, expressions with exponents, and lots more.

"Algebraic equations" likewise includes many subtopics.
