Algebra is an area of mathematics that uses symbols to represent numbers in formulas and equations. Understanding these symbols and how they work together and provide structure to equations allows mathematicians to more efficiently write formulas and solve math problems. 

This Algebra for Beginners is an introduction to the basic principles and skills of algebra. Topics include Variables, Grouping Symbols, Equations, Translating Words Into Symbols, and Translating Sentences Into Equations. With this course you will learn to manipulate and solve basic algebraic expressions, solve rational expressions, changing the subject of formulae and using formulae. You will learn to work with integers, decimals and fractions, how to evaluate powers and roots and how to solve single and multi-variable equations and inequalities. Learn how to apply algebra to a wide range of real-world problems and study critical algebraic concepts like functions, domains and ranges.


  • At the end of the course, you will be required to sit for an online MCQ test. Your test will be assessed automatically and immediately. You will instantly know whether you have been successful or not.
  • Before sitting for your final exam you will have the opportunity to test your proficiency with a mock exam.


After completing and passing the course successfully, you will be able to obtain an Accredited Certificate of Achievement. Certificates can be obtained either in hard copy at a cost of £39 or in PDF format at a cost of £24.
