    Math Algebra Guru

    Anybody a guru of this stuff? Need a link or two to find some formulas and deffs.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    I can probably answer any algebra questions you can come up with, but don't know of any link sites really. Ask away

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    My mom was a math teacher and still does a bit of tutoring...but it took me 3 or 4 tries to get thru college algebra... Hope you find what you need!

    OK what I have is a list of Algebra, trig and geometry terms. I have to give a definition of the term and a real life example of how it would be used. Supposed to be quick and to the point, per instructor.

    An example would be the theory to figure a pyramid, sorry can't remember the name. Def/ formula; c2= a2 + b2, can't even make it look right on this here machine, but you get the point. Real life; would be to use to square a deck or concrete pad.

    I hope that all makes sense.

    Not sure how much of your list is going to be on it, but I'd try wikipedia first.

    That's where I am headed first Jeb. See what I can find. Guess I should expect the unexpected, a math class with no book. Should be a ton of fun.

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!
