Requirements
  • Students should have a basic knowledge of Algebra and/or be enrolled in an Elementary or Intermediate Algebra (Algebra 1 or Algebra 2) course.
  • Students should have some experience solving linear equations. Some lessons will involve more advanced equations such as polynomial and rational equations.
  • Some lessons will involve use of the quadratic formula. For the Elementary/Algebra 1 student, this may not apply to you so you could still watch most other lessons.
Description

Word problems, also called story problems, are understandably a source of frustration for many students taking an Algebra course.  But it doesn't have to be that way.  In this course, I put together ten years of classroom teaching experience in Mathematics into a unified strategy that will help you solve most common Algebra class word problems.  Although all word problems are different, there are commonalities among them.  An emphasis here is put in on how to read the word problem, how to organize and analyze the information given, and not be overwhelmed by all the numbers being thrown at you.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for students who are enrolled in an Algebra course and want help with solving word problems.

Math Instructor

I have been teaching College Mathematics and Statistics since 2006. I've taught college math courses ranging from Basic Math and Algebra to Precalculus, Calculus, and Statistics. My core belief is that math is everywhere, and should be accessible to everyone. I never accept the words "I'm just bad at math" because it IS within the reach of everyone!
