THE INTERACTIVE CLASSROOM
Although the classroom is not the heart and soul of The World of Math, it is a stalwart and trustworthy guide through much of the principles used on examinations and competitions. It is a repository of knowledge, and, although it is not meant as a replacement for four years of high school math it can prove useful to consult in times of need.
|Pre Algebra||The fundamental building block of all that is to come. Through the arithmetic and problem solving skills built in the following lessons, we will eventually construct feats of awesome complexity. But first we have to start small. Although these few lessons should already be familiar to the vast majority of you, their importance cannot be overstated. Careful study now we reap great rewards later on.|
|Algebra||Hopefully, if you're reading this you have a basic understanding of the foundation of algebra. You understand the four most basic operations of arithmetic: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. You should know most of the basic properties of these operations. You should understand about variable substitution and how to solve for a variable in basic equalities. If all of the above made sense, prepare yourself for an overview of more advanced algebra topics. The following lessons are designed to impart a greater understanding of the principles of algebra, and to increase the depth and experience of students.|
|Geometry||Geometry cannot truly be taught via the Internet. However well written the following lessons may be, they will not impart the understanding of geometric concepts that can only come with careful experimentation. The compass is a very important part of geometry; if you do not own one, you should consider buying or borrowing this surprisingly useful mathematical tool. Hopefully, your geometry teachers will be able to show you how to use a compass and how it relates to the theorems discussed in your classes. This review of geometry cannot be more than a review. It can aid your understanding or remind you of theorems that you have forgotten but it will not teach you geometry by itself. Its purpose is to impart the most basic levels of geometry to you and to immerse students in the proper terminology and mindset for more advanced studies.|
|Advanced Algebra||By now, you should have an understanding of the fundamental principles that compose algebra. In this unit, we will build upon those principles to review the more complex aspects of high school math. Although it is impossible to learn advanced algebra from a web page alone, we hope that this abstract will prove a useful summary for the algebra student.|
