Valuable Bits

Instruction is a deliberately arranged set of external events designed to support internal learning processes. — Robert Gagné

There are no passive learners. — Thomas Postlewaite

The purpose of early college level algebra courses is to introduce the student to the use of abstraction, generalization, deductive reasoning, and critical thinking while exploring the patterns and relationships of a variety of algebraic entities including, but not limited to, equations, inequalities, algebraic fractions, polynomials, and functions. — Delano P. Wegener

 

If you know the definitions and can use deductive reasoning then the problems and further development become much easier.

 

Make flash cards for definitions, important general properties, and formulas.  Then use the Leitner Boxes method to regulate your use of the flash cards.
