What is Algebra Anyway?

Algebra is the part of mathematics in which letters and other general symbols are used to represent numbers and quantities in formulae and equations.

But How Does This Benefit My Student?

The mastery of  Algebra has great benefits for the overall development of your student. Algebra develops thinking, specifically logic, patterns, problem solving, and deductive and inductive reasoning.

How Can GayleTutors Help

Skillful tutoring necessary as the student builds upon the foundations laid and extends the knowledge base of Algebra 1`.  Algebra B/Common Core (formerly known as Algebra 2) is the third math course in high school.

Some Concepts Covered Within the Framework of Algebra B/ Common Core

Algebra B/Common Core will guide you through among other things linear equations, inequalities, graphs, matrices, polynomials and radical expressions, quadratic equations, functions, exponential and logarithmic expressions, sequences and series, probability and trigonometry.  Conic sections is an important concept presented in advanced algebra.  Students study parabolas, circles, ellipses, hyperbolas extensively.  Students learn to identity the direction a parabola opens as well as learning to write an equation of parabolas in vertex form from graphs.

Common Core

The new systems implemented in the Common Core Curriculum can be mastered as it builds on an existing framework and brings new thought to bear on what the student will need to be successful in college, career, and most importantly, life.  The are some nuances and Common Core calls for the student to focus in an in-depth manner on fewer topics, rather than racing to cover many topics.  This is a paradigm shift and must be recognized by any purveyors of math education.  The goal of GayleTutors is that students will gain a stronger mathematical foundation utilizing Common Core.  This will allow the student to more easily apply the knowledge of mathematics inside and outside the classroom.

Making Algebra B/Common Core an adventure is what we aim to do.
