Ch 20: High School Algebra - Cubic Equations: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

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

How it works:

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

  • Struggle with understanding how to solve perfectly cubed equations, use the greatest common factor, use grouping to factor cubic equations, square both sides of an equation twice or any other cubic 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 cubic equations 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 cubic 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 high school algebra I tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn cubic 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 cubic equations.
  • Solve equations that are perfectly cubed or not perfectly cubed.
  • Use the greatest common factor to solve cubic equations.
  • Factor cubic equations using the process of grouping.
