Algebra Worksheets

What is Algebra? There is no denying from the fact that most of the kids fear algebra. Yet despite this fear from students, algebra makes our lives and, especially equation solving easier. Algebra is essentially about solving for the unknowns or substituting real-life variables and then solving the equations for them. For most of us, algebra is the set of rules, formulas, and procedures employed to solve equations. But we often forget that real-life problems are being solved through the manipulation of variables and unknown factors. To define it mathematically, algebra is the branch of mathematics that deals with symbols and the rules used to manipulate these symbols. In basic algebra, those symbols denote quantities without any fixed value, called variables. Algebraic equations are used to define the relationships between these variables. Beyond giving us the solution to real-life problems, algebra is important for honing the reasoning skill of children. It enables them to state their ideas precisely and help them work in a systematic way. This section highlights all of our algebra materials across all grade levels. This topic first shows up around grade 3 and follows students through high school. I am often adding topics to this section. If you can think of anything that I am missing, please let me know and I'll get it up quickly.
