Algebra Introduction


Major Algebra Themes

Unfortunately, algebra doesn't come with a stirring and memorable theme song that plays at the beginning of every equation, although we think there should be. It would certainly make problem-solving feel so much more momentous.

Instead, we have certain themes that will carry us forward throughout the course of this guide, and we’re going to give you a short introduction to each of them right here. It’s just a way to break everything down and make the pieces seem more manageable...not that we don’t think you could handle it, of course.
