Background Tutorials

Evaluate expressions at specific values of their variables. Include expressions that arise from formulas used in real-world problems. Perform arithmetic operations, including those involving whole-number exponents, in the conventional order when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order (Order of Operations).

You can't do algebra without working with variables, but variables can be confusing. If you've ever wondered what variables are, then this tutorial is for you!

Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters.

Solving an equation for a variable? Perform the order of operations in reverse! Check it out in this tutorial.

Further Exploration

Solve word problems leading to equations of the form px + q = r and p(x + q) = r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach.

Trying to figure out a missing side length of a rectangle? Got the perimeter and the other side length? Then you can use that information and the formula for the perimeter of a rectangle to find that missing length! This tutorial will show you how!
