Master the fundamentals of Algebra with your own private tutor guiding you step-by-step with explanations, illustrations, and practice.

"The French mathematician Jacques S. Hadamard found, in a study of 100 leading mathematicians [including Einstein], that the majority of them were primarily visual in their approach."

Scientific American, Sept., 1984, p. 56.

Math Galaxy Algebra Fundamentals is like having an interactive textbook, with explanations, practice, and games that cover all topics found in an algebra 1 textbook: rational numbers, absolute value, powers/exponents, scientific and metric notation and operations, order of operations, factors and prime numbers, algebraic properties, translating English to algebra, simplifying expressions, 1 & 2-step equations, solving equations with parentheses, fractions, decimals and unknowns on both sides, slopes and linear equations, algebra word problems, systems of equations, systems of inequalities, and polynomials.

The concepts are presented in bite-size pieces, with detailed explanations, illustrations, and an unlimited number of practice problems, with numbers chosen randomly.
Includes support for Schoolwork.

By solving problems students earn robots to use in a maze game called the Labyrinth.
