Fresh Up your Algebra Skills

I wish websites like Algebasics existed when I was in school, as they would have been really helpful and supportive. Algebasics explains all things Algebra in a clean and understandable way. The sixteen main sections like The Basics, Linear Equations and Polynomials are all divided into several sheets that explain various concepts within the chapters.

The left side displays examples while the right side displays the solution for that example. This means that Algebasics is useful for those who need more practice in solving certain equations or grasping concepts. What I like is that you get a visual presentation of the example plus a voice that is explaining the steps.

It's much like school without a visible teacher and classmates. What I do not like that much is that there is practically no explanation of the underlying concepts. A introductory section for every section would have been nice.

Update: The service is no longer available on the Internet, the website has been removed, and is now displaying ads on a parking page. We do have an alternative for you though, which is probably even better for your math learning.

The Khan Academy hosts hundreds of math learning videos, from the very basics to advanced topics. The videos can be watched on the site, or downloaded to the local PC if that is the preferred option.

But it gets even better than that. You not only get videos that teach you everything you could possibly know about Algebra, but can also practice your skills online.

As far as Algebra goes, you can start with pre-Algebra courses if you never came into contact with Algebra before, or start directly with a specific Algebra course if you want to learn something specific instead. You can also check out Linear Algebra eventually which is also offered on the site.
