Algebra  IntroductionI have made two pages to help introduce people to Algebra. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20060222 20:11:53
Re: Algebra  IntroductionBoth the pages are simple and elgeant. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #3 20060222 22:37:35
Re: Algebra  IntroductionSimple and elegant ... wow, nice words! Yes, I hope to add lots more as time permits. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #4 20060223 09:54:01
Re: Algebra  IntroductionMathsIsFun, they seem very accessible to me. I could only comment on things to add, but you stated above that you plan on doing such anyway. I would suggest that before you move to more complicated material in algebra, a little chat on order of operations would be critical. We tend to follow those rules without thought at this point in our lives, but for those new to algebra it is paramount to know them. #5 20060223 10:37:34
Re: Algebra  IntroductionVery good point  it is so natural to do addition first, I didn't explain it. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #6 20060223 17:50:50
Re: Algebra  IntroductionI also think they're well done. El que pega primero pega dos veces. #7 20060223 19:17:25
Re: Algebra  IntroductionThanks ryos  great feedback. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #8 20060228 18:33:41
Re: Algebra  IntroductionBut I can't understand nothingit's too complicated! IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #9 20060228 18:34:44
