ANY GOOD MATH LATELY?
I have always hated
When I decided to homeschool I never thought past the basic four-
subtraction, multiplication and division. When my oldest announced that
he wanted to be an engineer and an astronaut, I panicked!

1 - Evaluating algebra expressions
Learn to define
variable; algebraic expression; signs of operation; order of operations.
you take information from a sentence and turn it into a mathematical
it is called "translating."
3 - Solving for X
When you solve for
want to "isolate" the x on one side of the equal sign.
4 - Order of operations
What if there are no
or brackets? How do you know which to do first? Add, divide, multiply?
Learn the order of operations and you'll never have to worry, again.
5 - Expressions from equations
By the end of this
the student will be able to: turn word sentences into algebraic
6 - Balancing equations to solve variables
By the end of this
the student will be able to balance equations to solve for variables
7 - Using equations to solve puzzles
Learn to set up an
that "matches" in numbers what the puzzle expresses in words. Then,
for the variable.
8 The equation behind an old trick
years, mathematicians have been solving the following puzzle to the
of their students.
9 - Positives and negatives on a number line
The best way to
and positive numbers is to look at a number line
10 - Absolute values
The concept of
value is important when adding positive and negative numbers
11 - Additive inverses
Lesson 12 - Multiplying positives and negatives
As we learned last
Additive Inverses are opposites. Two numbers are opposites if their sum
equals zero. When this principle is used in multiplication, these three
rules of thumb emerge.
