DiscussionDescription
Video of the quadratic formula: x=(-b±√(b²-4ac))/(2a) This video helps students to memorize the quadratic equation.
Multiplying First Degree Polynomials This manipulative gives a visual interpretation of multiplying two first degree polynomials.
Geometric Representation of (a+b)2 Visualization is an important tool in understanding mathematics. This presentation aids the student to visualize the algebraic identity (a+b)2=a2+2·a·b+b2
The Use of Variables in Algebra Variables allow us to represent unknown quantities, and quantities that can change. Variables are as essential to Algebra as quacks are to a duck.
Distributive Property of Multiplication The distributive property of multiplication of addition and subtraction is one of the most important tools for solving equations. The rule is a(b + c) = ab + ac.
