Studying algebra develops your student's abilities in problem-solving, reasoning, and logic. Major concepts and skills include graphing linear equations and inequalities; describing linear equations in slope-intercept and standard form; solving systems of equations using graphing, substitution, and elimination; expanding understanding of exponents; solving basic quadratic equations with factoring; and using unit multipliers to convert between units of measure. Some other topics your student will explore include adding, multiplying, and dividing polynomials and applying significant digits to computations with scientific notation.
Algebra is a crucial course in secondary mathematics and provides the foundation for future success in critical thinking and problem solving. Math-U-See's hands-on approach is an especially good option for learners who struggle with abstract concepts.
