Mathematics

Algebra has its own language. To understand this language, we learn how numbers, variables, and symbols come together to form algebraic expressions. Algebra Fundamentals gets us off on the right foot by outlining the rules and properties of mathematical operations, including Absolute Value. If you enjoy Solving Linear Equations and Graphing Lines, then you will have a blast solving Systems of Linear Equations and Inequalities. Algebra is much more than just linear. Sure, concepts like Square Roots are covered here, but other kinds of equations, such as Quadratic and Exponential Functions, can be used to model situations about area, motion, population growth, and finances. Learn how to apply these basic Algebra 1 concepts to your everyday life.
