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 more epic.

Instead, we have certain themes that'll 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, like looking at the picture on the front of a huge jigsaw puzzle before you actually start fitting the pieces together.
