8th grade (U.S.)

8th grade is all about tackling the meat of algebra and getting exposure to some of the foundational concepts in geometry. If you get this stuff (and you should because you're incredibly persistent), the rest of your life will be easy. Okay, maybe not your whole life, but at least your mathematical life. Seriously, if you really get the equations and functions stuff we cover here, most of high school will feel intuitive, even relaxing.

Age word problems

In 72 years, Sal will be 3 times as old as he is today (although he might not be... um... capable of doing much). How old is Sal today? These classic questions have plagued philosophers through the ages. Actually, they haven't. But they have plagued algebra students! Even though few people ask questions like this in the real-world, these are strangely enjoyable problems.

Sums of consecutive integers problems

The sum of 5 consecutive integers is 15. What are the integers? In this tutorial, you'll learn to solve problems by thinking about the sums of consecutive integers.

Algebraically determining segment length

In this tutorial, you'll flex both your algebra and geometry muscles at the same time. You'll do this by applying the right amount of spray tan (which is needed for properly flexing any muscle) and then solve problems about line segments using algebra!
