We all know the importance of Algebra in mathematics. It grows as the classes go higher. Unfortunately, the truth is that a lot of students hate algebra. Most of them feel it is a huge burden to keep track of formulas and properties while applying logic to the question. For students with learning disability, such as dyscalculia, it just adds another layer to their nightmare.
This is the reason that we always advocate adapting a new learning process early in life. More important is to give repetitive experience of the fundamental concepts of a topic right in the beginning. Similar practice is required for algebra. As when the topic is initially introduced to the students, the impression is stronger if the topic is discussed in a routine with special strategy for those struggling severely.
Charts do the same thing to an extent. Charts and diagrams in the classroom enable students to see concepts visually laid out in an organized way. Students process the charts content pretty well and easily make connections with the topic.
Keeping this in mind, We also made some charts presenting formulas of algebra. These are printable and made available in pdf form that you can download below for free.
First is the common core standards chart of Algebra. It will brush up the basic concepts of the topic and is really good for algebra beginners. We choose random very basic examples for kids to understand what operations are like in algebra.
After basic core concepts, its time for formulas. These are really important and are the backbone of the higher level algebra and its related topics. Do note that these are frequently used algebra identities. We included only those that are commonly used in solving algebraic expressions. Others identities can directly or indirectly derived from these. You can display the chart in the classroom or distribute it as a handout to reiterate the identities.
