Arithmetic is fun, but algebra is a blast! These tutorials will give you some straightforward explanations and examples to get you started down the road of algebraic thinking. We'll practice writing and evaluating numerical expressions, as well as seeing, interpreting, and graphing patterns and relationships between numbers. We're laying the foundation for lots of good learning ahead!
One of the fundamentals of algebra is learning to recognize patterns among numbers and being able to visualize those patterns and relationships. So...let's use some mathematical tools to visualize, interpret, and graph patterns involving the coordinate plane.
Wait, why are we using letters in math? How can an 'x' represent a number? What number is it? I must figure this out!!! Yes, you must. This tutorial is great if you're just beginning to delve into the world of algebraic variables and expressions.
