To help me with the free course I mentioned previously, I did 2 solid hours of algebraic equations yesterday. As I said, I did a lot of this in school but never could get the hang of it. I realised yesterday that the problem was my maths teacher. She never used the correct terms to describes things so I was confused all the time. The vids I used yesterday made everything so obviously clear and easy.
I was multiplying binomials, diving binomials by monomials, expanding trinomial multiplications to 9 terms before simplifying, expressing them differently and all sorts. It was a wonderful afternoon of revelatory discoveries and today I know more than I did yesterday. I love learning.
Anyone wanting to have a go, and it's fun (honestly!) this is the vid I used. I smiled so many times when I understood the simple concepts and could actually use them. It's 30 mins:
It starts off simple and builds you up. After this vid I searched for others and started doing more exercises for fun.
For examplel this 30 min vid:
In total 2 hours later and I was feeling much more confident about returning to my electronics equations.
