Algebra is a normal mathematics where we use symbols .The symbols may be the alphabets that represent an apparently unknown value to be determined.The symbols may be used along with numbers. The symbols may stand for the characteristics representing a mathematical relationship.
The rules and logics are the same as that of arithmetics that apply in algebra.
One of the basic difficulty a child faces is something like:
5+3=8 in arithmetic. But why not with with 5x+3y in algebra.But if I say to add 5 monkeys and 3 mango trees,
one child says , "not possible" ,
a second child says," It cannot be 8 mokeys or it cannot be 8 mango trees" and
the third one says to dare me, " Uncle! it looks extremely funny you do not know what to add or what not to. You are too old and refresh your knoweledge joining Kindergarten" .
But in algebra it is possible to say like:
If you add 5mokeys and 3mango trees you get,
where x stands for a monkey and y stands for a mango tree.
Last but not least, I request the young minds to be happy, friendly and curious about mathemetics and particularly algebra and never to hate it. Then only it( or any subject) will be easy.
