High School Algebra Worksheets
We start with the concept of expressions. A big focus is how to use expressions in practical situations to help you solve problems. We then transition to inequalities and how expressions fir into that window. We have you begin to create your own equations to solve problems in complex situations. We also fit a great deal of measurement based problems in this set. We have letter-sized Algebra Math Posters.

Reasoning with Equations & Inequalities
What is Algebra?
A branch of math, which includes numbers as well as symbols or letters of the alphabet for solving problems, is called Algebra. These symbols or letters are used to denote an unknown value. For example, if someone asks you a question, but you don't know the answer, the answer that has to be searched will be regarded as "x." Algebra is essential to math since it helps in finding solutions to most of the problems quite easily and quickly. To solve a problem, we create what is called an "equation." Whenever an expression entails a = sign, it is called equation. We study lots of fun things in algebra! Graphs, functions and relations, exponents, linear equations, and so much more! Algebra will also help you get a better understanding of Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, Arithmetic, etc.
Tips for learning Algebra - If you get the jitters whenever you hear "algebra," then the first thing you need to do is calm down. And now, let us help you! Here are a few tips for you: 1. Don't forget that every math function comes down to basic addition and subtraction. Even multiplication and division are just slightly complex ways to add and subtract. Get your grip on basic math operations; the rest is easy. 2. Never forget the "PEMDAS." Whenever you are hit with an equation, the idea is to simplify it. The order of simplification is Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, and Subtraction. 3. In algebra, negative numbers are commonly used. So it's always a plus point in learning how to add, subtract, multiply and divide negative numbers before switching to algebraic equations. 4. When you see alphabets or variables, don't get confused. Just think of them as unknown numbers. This will make it easier for you to understand what step you have to take next. 5. Always remember to start working from left to right. 6. Review all the basic rules for math operations in algebra. They really ease solving sums! 7. There's no rush, always do your work carefully. And don't forget to recheck!
