Description

Mastering Algebra with Ease is a beginner's course in algebra. In the lectures, I discuss many key topics that are essential for algebra 1. Students often find that algebraic mathematics can be a bit overwhelming when they first start out; but I am here to clear up their misconceptions. Math can be easy and fun! It just so happens that algebra is mostly used as a tool used to solve more exciting problems in higher branches of math, like calculus. Those with a good foundation in algebra will have an easier time succeeding in their future mathematical endeavors. Please join me, Joe (your highly enthusiastic instructor), and let's learn this amazing subject so that we can solve many exciting problems in our math careers!

Who this course is for:
  • Beginning algebra student, those planning to pursue higher level math courses, or anyone who needs to refresh one's memory on algebraic concepts.
