Basic algebra assignments focus on simple single-variable linear equations, including how to construct and solve them. Students then look at linear inequalities, equations with more than one variable and function. Before... More »

One of the most commonly used algebra formulas is the quadratic formula. The quadratic formula, x={[-b+-sqrt(b^2-4ac)]/2a}, is used to solve the roots, or values of x, in a quadratic equation, such as a(x^2)+bx+c, wherei... More »

Basic problems in Algebra I typically teach students to solve one-step equations to find variables with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. From there, students learn to solve two-step equations. More »

To learn algebra, you need to understand the basic principles of how to balance equations and then apply them to progressively harder problems. You should start by finding out what equations, variables and constants are ... More »

The 2004 second edition of "Linear Algebra Done Right" by Sheldon Axler teaches linear algebra to undergraduate college students. The International Standard Book Number of this text in paperback is 978-0-387-98258-8. More »

Linear equations may be solved by isolating the variable or variables. Solving linear equations involves undoing whatever operations have been done to the variable and putting the variable alone on one side of the equal ... More »
