Find out how algebra is simply a natural extension of the math you learned in elementary school. Basic Algebra is designed for all students who need a basic understanding of algebraic operations including simplifying, factoring, solving equations and inequalities, working with fractions or exponents, graphing, and word problems.

In Basic Algebra we will walk step-by-step through a wide variety of explained problems. Learn to perform the steps to solve equations and graph solutions. Understand FOIL (when it isn't wrapping your baked potato). Discover methods for factoring trinomials quickly and easily. Understand slopes and line equations so that you can identify a slope from two points or draw a line with a slope and a point. See how word problems help you translate your math skills to your real world. Explore additional resources for more explanations and practice problems with immediate feedback. Allow the course to lead you from topic to topic, building on what you already know.
