Exponents, Scientific Notation or Factoring could tap you on your head at any time and send you out of the circle of renowned scorers in Algebra.

What is Algebra?

Algebra is a branch of Math that uses letters as substitutes for numbers, to say it in simple terms. Moving from Arithmetic to Algebra, looks like this:

In Arithmetic: 3 + 4 = 3 + 4

In Algebra it is: x + y = y + x.

Very simple to say but when it moves on and reaches high school level, students need to concentrate on great many topics like Exponents, solving equations, scientific notations and so on.

Roots of numbers and radicals in Grade 10 could be difficult to understand. Let us see one example

Write 128 and 32 as product/powers of prime factors:

128=27, 32=25 hence

Or one more problem like

Factorize the following:
2xy – 12y

Visualize this as 2*x*y – 2*6*y.

What is common to both terms? Answer is 2

What is left in both terms once the 2 is removed?
