Algebra: Introduction to Algebra
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.
The Top Ten List of Algebra Mistakes
This is a humorous look at the mistakes students commonly make in Algebra. The instructor uses voiceovers with vintage video clips.
How to Learn Algebra
When learning algebra, it helps to avoid becoming intimidated and
to start off by learning simple problems to build confidence. A standarized test prep teacher show how to isolate variables to solve algebra problems. with examples on a whiteboard. Narrator speech is shown as text on bottom of screen.
Step-By-Step Solutions for Algebra
Solving algebra math problems step-by-step is important in order
to avoid missing a number or step and ending up with the wrong answer.
A math teacher teaches step-by-step instructions for solving algebra problems with examples on paper.

(Algebra) Number Lines, Part 2
This video illustrates how to graph an inequality on the number line. I could not post Part 1.
Review of Algebra Rules
This video, made for beginners, starts with very basic rules, then moves gradually into exponents. The rules are presented using sildes. There is no voice narration, just music. This is a basic review. (3:14)
Introduction to Algebra (Part 1)
This is a lesson on introduction to algebra in three parts. This is part 1. Algebra is the study of calcualatin and unknow value in an equation. Larry explains the basics of algebra using examples of problems on a whiteboard and explains the procedure on how to solve the problems.
Intro to Algebra (Part 2)
This is part 2 introduction to algebra. Larry continues with what what was learned in part 1 and part 1 should be watched before proceeding to part 2. Larry explains how to solve an algebra problem using addition on a whiteboard.
Intro to Algebra (Part 3)
Lesson on introduction to algegra part 2. Watch part 1 and 2 before watching this part. Larry continues with solving examples of problems using multiplication on a whiteboard.
Basic Algebra : Learning Algebra
Learning algebra is the next step after basic mathematics and involves the use of variables. Incorporate letters in addition, multiplication and other math problems to grasp the concept of algebra with assistance from a math teacher in this video on mathematics. Includes closed captioning.

Algebra Math Tips: Order of Operations, Sign Rules, and Words
Excellent video from Jimmy Chang, who has a master's degree in math and has been a math teacher at St. Pete College for more than eight years. He discusses order of operations, integer sign rules, and specific operation words.
Enhancing the Adaptivity of an Existing Website with an Epiphyte Recommender System
In this paper we propose an approach to enhance the adaptivity of an existing Website by plugging on top of it (epiphyte approach) a recommender system that displays additional tips and functionalities in a separate window. The recommender system analyzes the way the user browses through the Website according to predefined prototypical ways of using the Website (models of use) and then proposes information or functionalities that appear useful according to this model of use. Different mo
Sequence effects in solving knowledge-rich problems: The ambiguous role of surface similarities
Sequence effects are said to occur whenever the problem solving performance varies as a function of the order in which problems are solved. We present a framework that explain sequence effects as a result of (a) learning during solving a problem and of (b) transferring the learned content on succeeding problems. In two experiments we studied the ambiguous influence of surface similarities among structurally dissimilar knowledge-rich problems on sequence effects. These experiments demonstrate tha
Situational knowledge in physics: The case of electrodynamics
Major difficulties for a novice physics problem solver are how to interpret new problems and how to combine information given in the problem with information already known. A domain expert, by contrast, has the knowledge to take full advantage of problem features at a glance. It takes a long period of practice to acquire such situational knowledge, and it would be desirable for this to be taught more effectively. As a first step, this requires information on how situational knowledge differs acr
Physics learning with a computer Algebra systems: Towards a learning environment that promotes enhan
To become proficient problem-solvers, physics students need to form a coherent and flexible understanding of problem situations they are confronted with. This is important both for solving problems and for interpreting solutions. Still, many students have only a limited representation of the problems they are working on. Therefore, we devised an instructional approach to promote students' understanding of these problems, and to support them in forming associations between problem features and so
Improving database design teaching in secondary education: action research implementation for docume
Database design and use has educational interest for utilitarian and learning reasons. Database technology has significant economic impact and the demand for database design can not be covered by the existent educated experts. Furthermore the database management systems available at schools could be used for the design and implementation of high quality learning activities. Databases are general purpose modeling environments that enable problem solving using conceptual frameworks closer to the s
Looking Ahead to Select Tutorial Actions: A Decision-Theoretic Approach
We propose and evaluate a decision-theoretic approach for selecting tutorial actions by looking ahead to anticipate their effects on the student and other aspects of the tutorial state. The approach uses a dynamic decision network to consider the tutors uncertain beliefs and objectives in adapting to and managing the changing tutorial state. Prototype action selection engines for diverse domains calculus and elementary reading illustrate the approach. These applications employ a rich mod
A Comparison of Model-Tracing and Constraint-Based Intelligent Tutoring Paradigms
Two approaches to building intelligent tutoring systems are the well-established model-tracing paradigm and the relatively newer constraint-based paradigm. Proponents of the constraint-based paradigm claim that it affords performance at levels comparable to that of model-tracing tutors, but with significantly less development effort. We have built both a model-tracing and constraint-based tutor for the same problem domain (statistical hypothesis testing) and report on our findings with the goals
