Ch 8: Algebra II - Systems of Linear Equations: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Systems of Linear Equations chapter of this High School Algebra II Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about systems of linear equations. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the operations involving systems of linear equations required in a typical high school algebra II course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other high school algebra II work.
  • Identify the systems of linear equations concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our high school algebra II tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn systems of linear equations and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding how to solve a system of linear equations using two or three variables or solve a system with an infinite solution or any other systems of linear equations topic
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their math learning
  • Prefer learning math visually
  • Find themselves failing or close to failing their systems of linear equations unit
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in high school algebra II
  • Don't have access to their math teacher outside of class

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make learning about systems of linear equations simple and fun.
  • Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
  • Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live algebra II tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn about systems of linear equations on the go!
  • Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.

Learning Objectives

  • Define systems of equations.
  • Change stories into equations to solve.
