I need a COMPLETE math tutorial

  1. Jan 8, 2007 #1
    When I say complete, I mean all things 8th-12th grade level. I want to take a time out and do a through review and make up for things I missed by not listening in class (there are maaaany of them).

    basic
    algebra
    geometry
    ...etc.

    Preferably one that is clear and straight forward.

    I am willing to pay if it really meets or surpasses my expectations.


    Thanks.

    I am fairly confident that you will find everything you need in any college algebra textbook you pick up from www.amazon.com . Although I haven't checked out Ranger's site yet, and will do so now :-).

    You can learn most of the very very elementary stuff over the net within the span of a few hours. The grade 8-9 curriculum here consists of the basic trigonometric ratios, pythagoras's theorem, and basic algebra with one variable.

    PS - Thanks Ranger, I will be watching some of those video's :D.

    I'd say if you want to geniunely catch up on those 5 years of maths than just go and borrow 5 textbooks one for each year level and do as many problems in them as possible. Although if it's too easy don't bother. There is no shortcut with learning - at least what I have found.

    After that or in conjuction do as many junior maths competition problems as possible. They are a very good indication of whether you know your stuff or not.

    You might want to also check out http://bymath.com/. What this guy did was essentially translate two basic Russian math textbooks.

    Grab a good precalculus textbook and a geometry text.

    ranger, most of the links you provided don't seem to work...

    Could you perhaps send me the ones that dont work in a PM or email? And I'll see if I an find an alternate source. They were all working at the time of posting. AFAIK, about 90% of the links are currently working [from random clicking].
