Wait, why are we using letters in math? How can an 'x' represent a number? What number is it? This tutorial is great if you're just beginning to delve into the world of variables and expressions.

Explore how the value of an algebraic expression changes as the value of its variable changes.

A high-level, conceptual walk-through of what an equation represents and why we do the same thing to both sides of it

Let's use our algebra tools to solve a problem of earth-shattering importance: which Super Yoga plan is the best value! In this word problem, you'll put to practice your knowledge of variables, substitution, and one-step equations.

Equality is usually a good thing, but the world is not a perfect place. No matter how hard we try, we can't help but compare one thing to another and realize how unequal they may be. This tutorial gives you the tools to do these comparisons in the mathematical world (which we call inequalities). You'll become familiar with the "greater than" and "less than symbols" and learn to use them.
