Title Description
Adding Like Terms From a First Book in Algebra, 1895, by Wallace C.
Boyden.
Terms combine when they have the same variables to the same powers.

Advanced Algebra Lesson 307 Solve two inequalities in one variable joined with the conjunction OR.
This lesson is appropriate for the "end" of a Basic Algebra course.
Play_video
Advanced Algebra Lesson 308 Also appropriate for Basic Algebra, we solve two inequalities in one variable joined with the conjunction AND. Play_video
Algebraic Notation From A First Book in Algebra, Wallace C.
Boyden, 1895.
You need a good understanding of a variable, as x.
Play_video
Algebraic Notation, many terms From A First Book in Algebra, Wallace C.
Boyden, 1895.
Take your time and understand the nature of a variable, as x.
Play_video
An Interesting Relationship, with Algebra From our multiplication table, an interesting relationship between arithmetic and algebra.
We observe that x² - 1 = (x-1)(x+1), or, x² = (x-1)(x+1) + 1.

Arithmetic within Functions We can take sums, differences, products, and quotients within and between functions. Play_video
Arithmetic within Functions We may do basic arithmetic operations within and between functions. Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 01 - X is the Unknown We begin with a variable representing a "fill-in-the-blank" to make a statement true. Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 02 - X Fills in the Blank Don't let the concept of a variable throw you.
You just "fill in the blank" with what you already know.
Each "x" is unique to a math statement.
We do not use different values of x "in the same problem."
Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 03 - X Can Be Anything The value that x stands for can be any value.
Typically, we seek the value for x the makes a statement true.
Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 04 - Anything Goes Variables can be negative, positive, irrational, rational...
all kinds of things.
Anything goes...
Try to make the statement true.
A statement that is always true is called an identity.
Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 05 - One Good Idea Top to Bottom Dividing a fraction with like coefficients in the numerator and the denominator simplifies to unity. Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 06 - Coefficients Add Efficiently To do algebra easily and effectively, understand that coefficients add efficiently. Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 07 - Dr. X Can No Longer Operate At some point we need to leave the symbol for the operation of multiplication behind, as "X" has become a variable, and not a symbol to multiply. Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 08 - X is Handy, In (or Out) X is a handy thing, whether it is inside or outside of parentheses. Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 09 - Sum Groups are Worth Joining Grouping terms according to the Associative Law is exceptionally easy to see. Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 10 - Ignorance of the Law is No Excuse The Commutative Law and the Distributive Law are discussed. Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 11 - One Identity, One Additional Identity Zero is the Additive Identity.
One is the Multiplicative Identity.
Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 12 - Inverses, Additive and Reciprocal Discussed are necessary elements from arithmetic.
Students should master arithmetic before embarking on algebra.
Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 13 - Division and Subtraction Defined Differences and quotients are explained with our most basic operations.
We may define both subtraction and division as addition and multiplication, respectively.
Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 14 - Rearrange the Furniture The terms of a sum may be arranged in any order.
The terms of a product may be arranged in any order.
Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 15 - Cancel My Policy, Please We may subtract the same value from each side of an equality and maintain the equality.
We may divide the same value (a factor) from each side of an equality and maintain the equality.
Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 16 - Negative Multiplication When you have a single minus sign in a multiplication operation you're almost surely ending up on the negative side of the ledger. Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 307 Appropriate for both Basic Algebra and Advanced Algebra, we solve two inequalities in one variable joined with the conjunction OR. Play_video
Basic Algebra Lesson 308 This lesson is appropriate for both Basic Algebra and Advanced Algebra.
We solve two inequalities in one variable joined with the conjunction AND.
Play_video
Basic Algebra Problem 302 This is a basic algebra lesson appropriate for both the "end of basic algebra" and the "beginning of advanced algebra." Play_video
Basic Algebra Problem 302 This lesson is appropriate for the "end of a basic algebra course" as well as "the beginning of an advanced algebra course." Play_video
Domains of Functions When our functions have to stay within real values we cannot divide by zero or take an even root of a negative value.
This Lesson is also a Problem Set.
Play_video
Even and Odd Functions A lesson in EVEN and ODD functions in two variables.
The rule: EVEN means f(-x) = f(x); ODD means f(-x) = -f(x).
Play_video
Fast Lesson in Slope This is a fast lesson in slope. Play_video
Graph two linear inequalities We make a simple graph of the intersection of two regions in x and y. Play_video
Graphing Linear Inequalities 315 We make a quick sketch of two linear inequalities, then graph the region of intersection. Play_video

Multiplying Polynomials When we multiply polynomials we sum individual products.
We multiply each term in one polynomial times each term in the other polynomial.

Sigma Notation 110 A basic explanation of Sigma Notation, to take a sum of n terms. Play_video
Sigma Notation 111 We evaluate sums of n terms from sigma notation.
We discuss "Rainbow Addition" for APs.
Play_video
Sigma Notation 112 We take a good look at an Arithmetic Progression with Sigma Notation and Rainbow Addition. Play_video
