What is Algebra ?
Algebra (from Arabic al-jebr meaning “reunion of broken parts“) is the part of mathematics, together with number theory, geometry and analysis. Algebra is the study of symbols and the rules for manipulating symbols and is a unifying thread of all of mathematics.
Algebra develops an understanding of equations and their solutions, inequalities and their solutions, concepts associated with exponents, polynomials and rational expressions, functions, graphing. And requires basic knowledge of the term “constant” and “variable“, the real number system, the number line, the Cartesian plane.
