## Description

**The Ultimate Guide to Understanding Algebra** is a comprehensive course that covers in depth all topics typically taught in a standard Algebra course. The short and digestible lectures allow you to master and practice one concept at a time without becoming overwhelmed early on. However, you will still be challenged as the lessons are progressive and later sections require you to use multiple skills simultaneously to solve problems.

*Algebra*

We all are required to demonstrate competency in Algebra at some point in our lives. It could be for any number of reasons such as:

*Passing your high school class**Scoring high on the ACT or SAT for college admissions**An aspiration for one of the thousands of careers that require mastery of Algebra*

Algebra is much more prevalent in our daily lives than you may realize. Having a strong foundation and knowledge base of these concepts is essential for a wide range of careers including Computer Science, Finance, Engineering, Architecture, Medicine and countless more. Mastering the skills of Algebra is a crucial first step that will empower you to move onto higher level math and thus will pave the way for you to achieve your career goals whatever they may be.

*Why this course?*

With over **40 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE** in teaching Algebra, I’ve come to realize how students learn most effectively. This course is a product of learning and working with those thousands of students along the way. Also, because of my experience, I have determined the areas where students have generally had the most difficulty with. This course carefully walks through those topics and I’m confident that you’ll be able to understand these tricky concepts in a whole new way.

The course is made up of over **290** video lessons averaging roughly 3.5 minutes per video. There is absolutely **NO DRONING**, **NO MANUAL HAND WRITING**, and **NO TIME WASTED**. You’ll learn the skills quickly and effectively. You’ll have the opportunity to complete an **additional practice worksheet (with answers) for EACH of the over 290 lessons**. These problems are hand made by myself and are perfectly aligned with what was taught in the corresponding lecture.

**This course will provide you all the tools you need to become an Algebra master.**

I hope to see you soon in class! :)

## Instructor

Hello, my name is John Swokowski. I have taught High School Algebra for over 35 years. The most rewarding experiences I have encountered have been working with At-Risk students who did not like Math and thought they could not learn it. I love teaching and am looking forward to reaching many more students through Udemy.
