Back to School Review: Algebra | Geometry | Algebra 2/Trig.

Back to School Review

Hey math friends and welcome back to MathSux! Back to school season is upon us which means most students (and teachers) will need to review a bit before diving into a completely new subject.  In order to alleviate some of the back to school whoas, I bring to you, this back to school review! Check out the videos below to get the math juices flowing whether you’re new to Algebra, Geometry, or Algebra 2/Trig! I hope you find these videos helpful and wish everyone the best of luck in their first days at school! Happy calculating! 🙂

How to Prepare for Algebra: 

Calling all incoming algebra students, Combining Like Terms is a great place to start! You most likely have combined like terms before, but there’s nothing like sharpening your skills before getting the intense Algebra questions that are coming your way. Check out the video below and try the practice questions here!

How to Prepare for Geometry: 

Geometry students, you have the world of shapes ahead of you! It’s an exciting time to review basic Area, Perimeter, Circumference, and Pythagorean Theorem rules before moving ahead with this subject. Review the Pythagorean Theorem below from Khan Academy and check out the last page of the review sheet here to review area and perimeter.

How to Prepare for Algebra 2:

Relieve the fond memories of algebra by reviewing all the different ways to Factor and Solve Quadratic Equations! This is a great way to prepare for rational expressions and the harder algebra 2 problems that are right around the corner.  Check out the video below and related practice questions here to reinforce these hopefully not yet forgotten algebra skills!
