IMPORTANT NOTE: This Algebra Product has been completely refilmed in 2012, greatly improving the Audio/Video quality of the production. The newly refilmed course is available on Amazon now under the following titles:
- Algebra 1 Tutor: Volume 1 (ASIN B006S4D5BI)
- Algebra 1 Tutor: Volume 2 (ASIN B006S4D59A)
This product, "Math Video Tutor Fractions Thru Algebra" DVD, has been replaced by the above Algebra DVDs and contains the exact same sections, problems, and explanations but with much higher video quality. The "Math Video Tutor Fractions Thru Algebra" will be discontinued and unavailable in the near future, so please visit the products above for our Algebra 1 course.
This is your ticket to scoring higher in math - from Fractions through Algebra! This product covers Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1 and is essential for any student studying Algebra at the middle school, high school, or university level. This 2-DVD set is 10 Hours in length and features 21 lectures that consists of fully-worked example problems. No boring lectures!
Topics include positive/negative numbers, long division, fractions, algebraic expressions, positive and negative exponents, equations, simplification, factoring, inequalities, polynomials, and much more!
Most DVDs are 2 hours in length. This DVD is 5 times that length and is packed with fully narrated examples that make learning Math easy. Before you know it you will be working the 'tough' problems with ease. Learn Math in the easiest way possible - by examples!
Note: It is strongly recommended that you also consider the "Fractions Thru Algebra Companion Worksheet CD" which is also available at Amazon (ASIN: B001ASHVA8). The worksheet CD contains a set of worksheets for every section of this DVD video disk with fully worked out solutions. In this way, you can watch the section of the video DVD then work additional problems from every section and check your work.

From the Contributor
I have tutored many, many people in Math through Calculus, and I have found that if you start off with the basics and take things one step at a time - anyone can learn complex Math topics. This DVD has literally hundreds of example problems ranging in all levels of complexity. Each problem is broken down into bite-sized-chunks so that no one gets lost. This DVD will take *anyone* with no prior exposure to Algebra and raise their scores significantly!See all Editorial Reviews

of algebra, then you should consider buying this DVD. If you
stick with it, this video will prove to be a big help at a
One of the reasons I bought this product was to see how
someone could cram ten hours of content into a DVD at such
a low price. I opened the case expecting to see a double
sided disc, but lo and behold, the entire course is on one
To achieve this, the video had to be drastically compressed,
so the image has a lot of pixel swimming. The audio is clear
enough to understand, but there is a buzz sound on most of
In this day and age, the low video quality may turn off a
large portion of the potential audience. I would have gladly
paid more for a dual-disc set or double sided disc with
My second quibble concerns the use of a dry-erase marker board.
Watching the "talking hand" do its thing is O.K., but a lot
of time is spent watching the board being erased. I would
suggest using an electronic tablet or filming the problems
being done onscreen in an appropriate computer application.
Again, this would boost the cost of the DVD, but it would
be worth it.
It seems that much of the verbal presentation is off the cuff
and could have used more forethought - there is a least one
segment that is ended mid-sentence (there is even a humorous
spot where the presenter stops the lesson to answer a ringing
telephone).There are points where the tutor makes an error
and catches himself, there are also a couple spots where
errors slip through. Nobody's perfect, but a bit more pre-
planning and post-production polish would have helped.
Still, I'd buy this product again as-is, and if the author
made similar videos on other math topics with the same amount
of content at the same price, I'd get them, even if they were
done in the same fashion as this one.
There are people saying about this product on this website is "boring setting" and "bad video quility". ITS A ERASABLE BOARD WITH A GUY'S HAND DRAWING OUT THE QUESTIONS, PEOPLE!!!!!!! I'm actually glad it isn't something spectacular to remind me of TV. I have ADHD and I get distracted easily, though NOTHING in this video distracts me, nor would anything in this video distract the average kid. It gets down to the point, and nothing more... because this video is about using your head and learning, not about being Wowed by the Video Quality and the great colors.
Ok, basiclly, A Teacher draws and explains the problems on a white, erasable board.
Overall, Great Product!
