Using the Course
We've designed this course so that it's easy to navigate for students who are struggling with algebra concepts. Check out the two most popular options to decide which best fits your needs:
- Start at the beginning with a review of foundations and linear equations, and advance through the chapters and lessons in order until you reach the last lesson on sequences and series. Lessons follow a natural progression, making this option simple to follow along.
- Identify algebra topics you find most difficult, and skip the material you already know. If you only need to study complex numbers, you can go straight to that chapter. Though some lessons might refer to topics in previous lessons, each one is designed to stand alone to make sure you get all of the info you need to understand a topic.
