What Is Algebra?

Hello! Ever wondered what algebra is? You may have an impression that algebra is math with nothing more than a bunch of symbols and letters.  I can understand if you think algebra is for the “birds” but trust me if it were not for algebra there would be no internet,…

Graphing Lines Using y = mx + b Slope Intercept

The most common way students learn to graph lines is using y=mx + b or the slope intercept method.  This is a great method because it’s straight forward and easy.  However a linear equation must be in y=mx + b form to use the slope intercept method of graphing.  Let’s…

Graphing One Variable Linear Equations

Often it’s the easy things we tend to “mess up” and from my experience when students graph one variable lines they make mistakes not because it’s hard rather they just never remember if y = a number or x = a number is a vertical line or horizontal line.  Let’s…
