Need help with algebra?
You've found the right place!

Lessons: How do you really do this stuff? -- Purplemath's algebra lessons are written with the student in mind. These lessons emphasize the practicalities rather than the technicalities, demonstrating dependable techniques, warning of likely "trick" questions, and pointing out common mistakes. The lessons are cross-referenced to help you find related material, and a "search" box is on every page to help you find what you're looking for. (Note: A few trigonometry lessons have recently been added, with more lessons on the way. If you have suggestions regarding topics, particularly within trigonometry, that you would like to see added to Purplemath, please say so. Thank you!)

Learning Forums: Helping students gain understanding and self-confidence in algebra. -- These forums exist in the hope of helping learners grow in mathematical knowledge and inner strength. The forums are free-access and are "staffed" by volunteers. For best success, don't wait until the last minute or until you're "totally lost"; start asking questions as soon as you find yourself feeling "stuck".

Site Reviews: -- Tired of looking through page after page of search-engine hits trying to find a site that might have something useful? These categorized Internet links have all been reviewed by Purplemath.

Only those sites with something immediately useful (and free, or free-to-try) for algebra students are listed. You won't find math jokes or recreational math sites here. Instead, check these review for sites containing lessons, tutoring forums, worksheets, articles on "how math is used in real life", and more.

Homework Guidelines: How to suck up to your teacher. -- English teachers tell students explicitly how to format their papers. Math teachers, on the other hand, frequently just complain in the lounge about how messy their students' work is. Neat homework can aid your comprehension and might make your teacher like you better. These Homework Guidelines for Mathematics will give you a leg up, explaining in clear terms what your math teacher is looking for.

Study Skills Self-Survey: Do I have what it takes? -- Much of your success or failure in algebra can be laid at the feet of your study habits. Do you have good math study habits? Take this survey and find out.
