How do I start learning algebra?
Simply so, is it hard to learn algebra?
Algebra is thinking logically about numbers rather than computing with numbers. Paradoxically, or so it may seem, however, those better students may find it harder to learn algebra. Because to do algebra, for all but the most basic examples, you have to stop thinking arithmetically and learn to think algebraically.
Regarding this, what are the basic rules of algebra?
The Basic Laws of Algebra are the associative, commutative and distributive laws. They help explain the relationship between number operations and lend towards simplifying equations or solving them. The arrangement of addends does not affect the sum. The arrangement of factors does not affect the product.
Answer: Slowly and with difficulty, just like amateur mathematicians. If you are learning on your own, the main way to learn is books. I've only read one math book this way! It's normal to skip around, omit things you don't understand or aren't interested in, and focus on what captivates you.
