The Video Math Tutor: Algebra: Introduction to Algebra (PAL)
NOTE: A FREE, tiny, low-res version of 11 minutes of this lesson is on my web site. Purchase the DVD if you want a larger, high quality movie of the full lesson. This is the PAL version.
This lesson consists of providing you with a Self-Tutorial on what is algebra, what are variables, constants, coefficients, terms, and expressions. The tutor explains the use of proper notation, how to combine like terms, find the negation of an algebraic expression, how to evaluate an expression (by hand and by using your calculator), and finally, there is a VERY detailed section on how to translate English phrases into algebraic expressions.
ANOTHER NOTE: This disc is meant to be viewed using a DVD player on a WIDESCREEN (16:9 aspect ratio) TV. My videos are NOT meant to be viewed on Standard 4:3 aspect ratio TVs. In fact, The videos were originally meant to be viewed ONLY on computer monitors and iPods, so even on a widescreen TV, you may experience some "cropping" (chopped off portions of the videos). For the best viewing experience, watch the DVDs using DVD software on your computer.
Unfortunately, when these videos were made, I used a cheap wireless microphone, so you will hear an occasional "pop" and "buzz" sound when I am talking. I am sorry about this. The disc is not damaged. I have a new microphone now, so new lessons will be of a much higher quality.
