I totally understand your frustration, in an earlier post on this thread, someone mentioned googling for the answer, and if you don't get the right answers, you are probably asking the wrong questions. OK so what are the questions? I have a grasp of basic mathematics however, I was not sure what questions to ask. Not everyone wishes to have their equations solved for them once, as that will only help them once. My son got straight A's in math in high school because his teacher was vivid in his explanations. Visualizing the causes and effects, helped to determine how much he was able to absorb, understand and implement. When he got to college his professors refused to explain the equations, insisting he just memorize the formulas. His math grades fell. I think it would be nice to have a thread here where the people who have these sorts of questions, can meet up with people who will help with explanations of the processes. "Give me a fish I eat for a day, Teach me to fish and I eat forever". (or something like that).
Anyway I searched "linear algebra" etc. Looked around, went back to a site where I learned a great deal already. I found this video (in a series) that looks like it will be helpful to me. It will seem like kids play to most. I graduated from high school in the 70's, got an "A" in algebra, yet the years eroded all the memories.
Anyway if you get a chance here is a beginners video, linked to a series that might be helpful.
I will be studying these in my spare time.
Good luck Zsangerous!
Here is another good explanation of factoring for beginners

another on basic algebra
If anyone else knows of any good math tutorials, would you mind posting links here? Got link?Auntie Val2012-08-21 20:00:59
