The Ultimate Step-by-Step Guide to Solving Algebra Problems

SPECIAL NOTE: Algebra-class is undergoing a makeover! We hope that you like our new look. Please bear with us as we transform the site page by page!

My name is Karin Hutchinson. I am one of those CRAZY teachers who loves to teach Algebra.

After helping many middle school students (who despised math) learn to LOVE Algebra, I decided to try to help more students around the world get rid of their fears and frustrations of Algebra.

Most students don't do well in Algebra because they don't have the basic "building blocks" or foundation in order to understand more difficult concepts.

My goal is to help you build that foundation so that you are not only successful, but come to enjoy the challenge of Algebra.

Step 1: Take a look around

Start with the nav bar at the top. All of the major units will be listed under Algebra or Pre-Algebra.

Click on the unit that you are studying and check out each of the lessons. Every lesson contains step-by-step written examples with helpful hints to help you solve the problem.

Some lessons follow up with a video tutorial for more step-by-step instruction.

Step 2: Access the two free online courses

If you need more direct video instruction with a lot of practice problems and detailed answer keys, check out the **Pre-Algebra Refresher** Course and the very first unit in the Algebra 1 course, **Solving Equations**.

These two **FREE** units will give you a solid foundation for Algebra which will allow you to better understand the entire Algebra curriculum.

Step 3: Complete the Algebra 1 E-course

Are you looking for a complete and thorough **home school curriculum**?

Or are you trying to pass the **college entrance exams** to avoid taking the introductory college course for no credit?

Or maybe you are struggling with your Algebra course and need a 24/7 **tutor**.

If any of these describe your situation, you will benefit from a subscription to the Algebra 1 E-course, which is an in-depth study of beginning Algebra.

Note: I've also started the Algebra 2 curriculum. The first five units are now available with the Algebra 1 subscription!
