Basic Algebra builds on the foundation of arithmetic. Featuring the introduction of Mathematical formulas, along with equations that contain letters and symbols, as well as numbers.
The main letters and symbols concerned are called variables, or sometimes unknowns, and they help enable people to solve a wider range of problems than standard arithmetic with numbers. Not just in Math but in a variety of disciplines.
So it’s safe to say, that understanding and being competent at Algebra is a very key skill to have in the modern world. The pages below in this section, focus on some introductory Algebra topics.
Basic Algebra Pages
A short page on the definition of a variable in Algebra.
- Sets and Set Notation
An introduction to the idea of sets in Math, and examples of common set notation.
- Associative Property
An important property that applies to addition and multiplication.
- Commutative Property
Not dissimilar to the associative property, the commutative property is one of several others that apply to certain sums in Algebra.
Inequalities sometimes seem daunting at first, but don't usually take long to get the hang of.
It's not only whole numbers that can have factors, mathematical expressions can also be factored in many instances.
- Removing Brackets
A page showing the process of removing brackets. A process sometimes referred to as expanding brackets.
