Recognizing Patterns of Object & Sorting by Attributes

1. Recognizing Patterns of Object & Sorting by Attributes

Recognizing patterns of objects and sorting by their attributes opens the door to real world problem solving and reasoning skills. Patterns are used in Math at all skill levels, from the very basic sorting of colors and shapes to higher level STEM related concepts.

Using Tables and Graphs in the Real World

2. Using Tables and Graphs in the Real World

We use tables and graphs in algebra as ways to visually show an equation or function. But do we really use these in the real world? Is it that important to learn about tables and graphs? Find out in this video lesson.

How to Solve One-Step Algebra Equations in Word Problems

3. How to Solve One-Step Algebra Equations in Word Problems

Word problems may be considered the most evil math invention ever, but never fear! Just watch this video lesson and you will know how to methodically translate these word problems into simple math and then to solve it.

How to Solve Equations with Multiple Steps

4. How to Solve Equations with Multiple Steps

In algebra, when you want to solve an equation for a particular variable, you will need to perform multiple steps that include adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. Watch this video lesson to learn the order you need to do these steps.

Solving One-Step Linear Inequalities

5. Solving One-Step Linear Inequalities

In this video lesson, you will learn how you can solve any kind of linear inequality that only requires one step. Learn when you need to subtract, when you need to add, when you need to multiply, and when you need to divide.

Solving Two-Step Linear Inequalities

6. Solving Two-Step Linear Inequalities

After watching this video lesson, you will be able to solve any kind of linear inequality problem where you only have to perform two steps. You will know in what order to perform each step and you will know just what kind of operation you need to do.

What is a Function: Basics and Key Terms

7. What is a Function: Basics and Key Terms

Mapping numbers sounds complex, but we do it when we buy gasoline. We pump gasoline, and the gas station charges us based on the amount of gas that we pump. Learn how this relates to functions while reviewing the basics and notations in this lesson.

Compare Properties of Functions Algebraically

8. Compare Properties of Functions Algebraically

In this lesson, we will explore algebraic and numeric properties and the evaluation of functions. We'll demonstrate function evaluations and the idea that every element of the domain has a unique element in the range.
