You’re the airplane and algebra is your sunny vacation destination. Without the runway you’re not going anywhere. Seriously, the foundation for all higher mathematics is laid with many of the concepts that we will introduce to you here: negative numbers, absolute value, factors, multiples, decimals, and fractions to name a few. So buckle up and move your seat into the upright position. We’re about to take off!

Thank you SO much! I’m in sixth grade and is studying chemistry, physics, calculus, etc. I can name tons of unheard of polygons in geometry, and all of that, but we have been learning decimals and I didn’t understand at all. Heck, I can’t even long divide for some reason. This was the only thing that made me understand, and now I can do good on my test tomorrow. 😀
