PBS Learning Media: High School Algebra

High School Algebra takes students on a mathematical journey that starts with evaluating simple single variable expressions, continues with linear systems, and challenges them with graphing multi-variable equations. Students will see how math is used in real-life scenarios, ranging everywhere from pipefitting to designing a dress with a Project Runway winner. Students are also challenged to find maximum and minimum points on the graph of a quadratic formula, solve for unknowns on a number line, and brew the perfect cup of coffee using algebra.
