# Algebra Worksheets & Problems

Below are a number of worksheets covering elementary algebra problems.

Elementary Algebra is about manipulating mathematical expressions, with quantities represented by symbols e.g x, y or z. Using symbols instead of numbers makes it possible for work in a general rather than a specific way, and it allows us to manipulate and rewrite the relationships between quantities in different ways. This can also help with finding patterns.

Algebra is the generalization and representation, in symbolic form, of significant results and patterns in arithmetic and other areas of mathematics.

Calculus, an important branch of algebra, concerns itself with the study of behaviour of functions. It includes differential and integral calculus. Differential calculus is concerned with variations of functions, maximum and minimum values, gradients and approximations. Integral calculus is concerned with areas and volumes. Calculus has many applications in science.

Calculus was developed independently by Newton and Leibnitz in the 17th centuary.

High school math students can use these algebra problems for study purposes. High School Teachers - you're welcome to copy these worksheets for classroom use. Parents - if you'd like to help your child learn math we suggest you start with our math tutorial section before returning to use these worksheets.

## CALCULUS TUTORIALS

• Introduction to Differentiation
Definitions, worked examples and exercises with solutions. Your first step to calculus.
This tutorial is suitable for students in Year 12.
• Differentiation of Negative Indices & Rational Powers
You should review the differentiation of positive powers first (above) as negative indices are managed in the same way but you need to take care with the signs.
This tutorial is suitable for students in Year 12.
• Applications of Differentiation
Using derivatives to find the grandient of a tangent and normal of straight line graphs.
This tutorial is suitable for students in Year 12 or 13.
• Introduction to Integration
Sometimes called antidifferentiation, integration is the process of finding the definite or indefinite integral of a function.
This tutorial is suitable for students in Year 12.

## A note about year levels

Where appropriate each worksheet is given a year level that it is applicable to. As we're all in different countries the year level corresponds to the number of years at school. So, for example, a worksheet for Year 11 is for students in their 11th year of school.
Worksheets for earlier or later years may still be suitable for you.
