Lately, we regret the marked decrease in posting at FamilyTrivium.com. A new school year is in full swing and to say that we are busy is a definite understatement.
One of the many things keeping us busy is a marked increase in homework. In particular, Algebra has been consuming what used to be abundant free time. However, one of the Family Trivium kids hopes to be a scientist and math is must for them.
According to MathIsFun.com, Algebra is a branch of math which “uses letters (like x or y) or other symbols in place of unknown values.”
Y – 5 = 10
If we add 5 to both sides of the eauation we can determine the value of Y:
Y – 5 + 5 = 10 + 5
Y = 15
Put simply, in Algebra, we use what we do know to help us determine what we don’t know.
Going back to how to how Family Trivium started, at the spur of the moment, future posts will likely be shorter, like this one. We do this with the hope of actually making regular posts.
