Did you realize that the word "algebra" comes from Arabic (just like "algorithm" and "al jazeera" and "Aladdin")? And what is so great about algebra anyway?
This tutorial doesn't explore algebra so much as it introduces the history and ideas that underpin it.
Most of us are used to using the digits 0-9 to represent numbers in the base-10 (decimal)number system. In this tutorial, we'll see that is just one of many (really infinite) number systems. In particular, we will focus on the binary (base-2) and hexadecimal (base-16) systems.
