The title of this site, “Math for Morons Like Us,” is intended to get your attention and resonate with how you may feel about math, and not meant as an insult. It has been designed to help clarify some of those math concepts that cause confusion when it comes to pre-algebra, algebra, algebra II, geometry, trigonometry, and pre-calculus. It is assumed that you know some of the basic concepts, and that you want to reinforce or review them.

You’ll find free tutorials, sample problems, and quizzes along with interactive resources to help you learn:

*Pre-Algebra – Includes: Basic Equations, Basic Graphing, and Fractions

*Algebra – Includes: Exponents, Single and Multiple Variable Equations, Word Problems, Factoring, Fractions, Ratios, Graphing on Number Lines and on the Coordinate Plane, Square Roots, and Scientific Notation.

*Geometry – Includes: Parallel Lines, Congruent Triangles and Right Triangles, Isosceles and Equilateral Triangles, Quadrilaterals, Parallelograms, Similar Polygons, Circles, Coordinate Geometry, Area and Volume of Solids, and some “Computer Fun.”

*Algebra II – Solving Equations and Inequalities, Graphs and Functions, Polynomials and Factoring, Fractional Expressions, Powers and Roots, Complex Numbers, Quadratic Equations and Functions, Coordinate Geometry, Exponential and Logarithmic Functions, Probability, Matrices, Trigonometry, Equations and Triangles, and more.
