Factorization (with Fortnite)

Imagine this scenario. So basically you’re playing Fortnite and your mom calls your name for dinner for like the third time. There are like three people left and you’ve told her for like the second or third time that you can’t pause your game. You see the fight between the other two guys and you…

Absolute Value

The concept of absolute value has many uses, but you probably won’t see anything interesting for a few more classes yet. There is a technical definition for absolute value, but you could easily never need it. (If you go as far as calculus, the technical definition might come up.) For now, you should view the…

Building Speed with Equations

There are lots of formal steps that we learn for working with algebraic equations, but after you’ve learned them, there are quicker ways to go about getting an equation in a form you want.

Operations and Fractions

In this lesson we will be learning about LEARNING OBJECTIVES Find the prime factorization. Reduce a fraction to lowest terms. Find an equivalent fraction. Graph fractions on a number line. Add and subtract fractions. Multiply and divide fractions. Use the order-of-operations agreement with fractions.

Synthetic Division to Divide Polynomials

This tutorial will teach you how to use synthetic division – an extremely useful tool when dealing with polynomials. It is a simplified version of long division that allows you to divide polynomials with ease.

‘Two Working Together’ and other Rate, Time and Distance problems.

A typical worded math problem is the ‘two working together’ problem, which is described here in detail. This is a classic test problem encountered in algebra and both quick and in-depth explanations are provided. Other examples are included.

Equations of Parallel Lines

Non-vertical lines, or lines that have positive, negative or undefined slope, are parallel if they have the same slope and different y-intercepts. Vertical lines, which have zero slope, are parallel if they have the same slope and different x-intercepts.

Solving 2-Step Equations

Solving 2-Step equations may seem hard at first but becomes really quite easy after you get the hang of it. It simply consists of isolating the variable within the equation.

Order of Operations

Order of operations is a building block for basic mathematics. Without this skill math can become difficult and result in the incorrect answer. We use the mnemonic PEMDAS to learn this skill. PEMDAS identifies order of operations reading left to right. P; Parenthesis E; Exponents M; Multiplication D; Division A; Addition S; Subtraction Follow this…

Graphing on a Graphing Calculator

Once students begin to take classes on pre-calculus or beyond, instructors begin requiring them to draw and solve for the graphs of an equation (or even multiple equations!) This task can be daunting, but a graphing calculator can save the day! These handy devices draw, trace, and even solve for aspects of a graph. In…
