Below, you'll find more information on the field of study and how Varsity Tutors can help you advance in it.

What is Algebra?

Algebra is a math subject that deals with things like arithmetical operations and formal manipulations of abstract symbols instead of specific numbers. The field of study is one of the oldest in the math subject area. In fact, algebra's roots date all the way back to the ancient Babylonians. The word "algebra" comes from an Arabic term, which means the "reunion of broken parts." Since its inception, algebra has grown tremendously into one of the foremost fields of mathematical study in the modern world. For example, in today's world algebra is used for everything from telecommunications to building homes.

There are several different levels of algebraic study that you may find yourself pursuing at different stages in your academic career. Most students begin learning about the topic through pre-algebra coursework. This class helps those who take it build a solid foundation of algebraic skills that they can then build on in future classes. If you're taking a pre-algebra course, you may study things like factoring, variables, integers, order of operations, and linear equations, among other things.

After pre-algebra, students typically move to a class called algebra one. This course builds on the foundational skills that the student learned in pre-algebra and introduces more advanced material in the subject. Here, you'll study things like functions, radical expressions, polynomials, and other key algebraic principles.

Next, comes algebra two. This course takes everything a step further and students start getting into some of the most advanced algebraic topics while taking this class. If you're currently taking algebra two, then you may study things like quadratic equations, logarithmic and exponential expressions, trigonometry, matrix algebra, and more. If you're a college student, then your course may be called college algebra instead of either algebra one or two. College algebra essentially covers many of the same topics that are covered in algebra one and two but at a deeper level and with a faster pace.

No matter which level of algebra you currently find yourself in, you can get help with developing a better understanding of your course's content through the help of algebra tutors. For example, if you have a child who is just beginning their journey with pre-algebra, then their instructor can focus on the core algebraic principles that they'll need to know to feel confident with their current class and with future classes in the subject area. More advanced students can focus on algebraic topics like matrix algebra with their algebra tutor. You can reach out to us today if you could use help with your algebra study sessions.

Learning Algebra

There are certain standards that students are asked to meet with regards to their algebraic knowledge. For example, the Common Core High School Standards are a set of benchmarks that are developed by key education officials in the state or national government. There are a set of algebra Common Core Standards that students in high school should strive to meet. Below, you'll get a look at what some of these standards are so that you can assess how you're doing with your understanding of algebra.

By the time students finish high school, they should know most of the foundational topics in the field of algebra. For example, they should know how to solve and rewrite expressions in equivalent forms, polynomials and rational functions, factors of polynomials, rewriting rational functions, equations, equalities and inequalities, solving systems of equations, and more. If you find that you're lacking in one of these areas, then working with an algebra tutor is a chance to get the guidance you need to overcome your struggles.

Algebra and Testing

Because algebra is one of the most important math subjects, it's featured on many classroom and standardized tests. For example, if you plan on taking the ACT or the SAT soon, then you'll need to have a strong understanding of core algebraic concepts in order to do well on the math section of the exam. Doing well on the ACT and the SAT is important because a solid score on these exams could help you get into more competitive colleges. You could even earn scholarship offers if you do well on these standardized admissions tests.

Keep reading for a look at some of the algebraic topics that you'll need to know before taking the ACT. You'll be asked questions on things like algebraic operations, expressing relationships with variables, matrix equations, algebra in real-world contexts, polynomials equations, and more. Do you understand all of these algebraic topics at a high level? If the answer is no, that's okay. You can get the help that you need to develop a more complete understanding of these topics by signing up for algebra tutoring.

If you're preparing to take a standardized test like the ACT or SAT, then your tutor can create lessons for you that are based on the information you'll need to know for your upcoming exam. You can get targeted instruction and personalized feedback throughout each of these lessons. This can help you develop a more complete understanding of the algebra topics that you need to know in order to feel confident about taking these important tests.

Additionally, while you're working with your algebra tutor, you can also get help with developing your general test-taking skills. For example, your instructor can spend some time with you showing you how to manage your time more effectively when taking a challenging exam like the SAT. They can show you what an ideal test preparation process looks like so that you know what to do in the future when you have another important exam to take. Your tutor can even show you how to overcome things like test anxiety if that's an issue that you've had in the past. These are skills that you'll be able to utilize on your upcoming test as well as on any future exam that you take.

You'll be able to work through each lesson with your educator at your own pace.
