Why Should I Buy?
Just the thought of algebra can be scary but, believe it or not, when taught in the right way, the basics can be quickly grasped. By slowly building up from there, your child could soon be doing some complex operations without even realising it.
Carol Vorderman’s video lessons explain concepts in a clear and precise way. Our brilliant ‘Equation Builder’ makes entering equations on a computer simple. By practising new skills in our algebra games and then putting them into action in our practice sessions, your child will quickly build in confidence and very soon you’ll both agree that algebra can be surprisingly satisfying!
The course is aimed at children around 9-11 years old but is equally suitable for children starting secondary school who need help with the basics.
