Ch 14: High School Algebra - Algebraic Distribution: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Algebraic Distribution chapter of this High School Algebra I Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about algebraic distribution. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the operations involving algebraic distribution required in a typical high school algebra I course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other high school algebra I work.
  • Identify the algebraic distribution 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 I tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn algebraic distribution and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding how to distribute positive and negative signs, change negative exponents to fractions, work with fractional powers or any other algebraic distribution 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 algebraic distribution unit
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in high school algebra I
  • Don't have access to their math teacher outside of class

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make learning algebraic distribution 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 high school algebra I tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn algebraic distribution on the go!
  • Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.

Why Do We Distribute in Algebra? - Explanation & Examples

1. Why Do We Distribute in Algebra? - Explanation & Examples

What's the purpose of distribution in algebra? In this lesson, we'll find out why we distribute. We'll also look at examples and sample problems that involve basic distribution.

Distributing First vs. Adding First: Differences & Examples

2. Distributing First vs. Adding First: Differences & Examples

When we need to simplify an expression, how do we know if we should distribute first or add first? In this lesson, we'll look at when this matters and how to make the best decision.

Distributing Positive and Negative Signs

3. Distributing Positive and Negative Signs

It's not just numbers and variables that get distributed. Positive and negative signs can, too. In this lesson, we'll learn how to distribute positive and negative signs correctly.

Distributing Algebraic Expressions with Numbers and Variables

4. Distributing Algebraic Expressions with Numbers and Variables

So, you can simplify an algebraic expression when you need to distribute a number? Great! But what if you need to distribute a variable or a variable with an exponent? Learn how in this lesson.

Changing Negative Exponents to Fractions

5. Changing Negative Exponents to Fractions

A negative exponent isn't like a normal exponent. In this lesson, we'll learn about negative exponents and how they lead us to fractions. We'll practice with numbers and variables.

Working With Fractional Powers

6. Working With Fractional Powers

If you know what to do with 3 to the second power, then you understand exponents. But what if the exponent is a fraction? Find out what to do with fractional powers in this lesson.

Distribution of More Than One Term in Algebra

7. Distribution of More Than One Term in Algebra

Once we've mastered distributing a single term, it's time to raise the stakes. In this lesson, we'll learn how about distribution involving two, three and even more terms.

Two-Step Equation: Definition & Examples

8. Two-Step Equation: Definition & Examples

Solving problems that just have two steps can sometimes trip people up. Read on to find out what two-step equations are and see some examples. Meet our friend Ramon as he learns about this mathematical concept.
