# Algebra Definition

### What is Algebra ?

As per *Wikipedia* - Algebra is a branch of mathematics that deals with relations,
operations and their constructions. It is one of building blocks of mathematics and it
finds a huge variety of applications in our day-to-day life.

Apart from its significance as a core subject of mathematics, Algebra helps students and kids a lot in developing an overall understanding of other advanced branches of mathematics such as Calculus, Geometry, Arithmetic etc.

Our objective with this course content is to present Algebra and its associated concepts in an interesting and easy manner so that the school going kids can learn the subject with ease and interest.

#### Advanced Definition of Algebra:

**Algebra** (from Arabic al-jebr meaning "reunion of broken parts") is the branch of mathematics
concerning the study of the rules of operations and relations, and the constructions and
concepts arising from them, including terms, polynomials, equations and algebraic structures.

#### Concepts Associated with Algebra:

Elementary Algebra involves simple rules and operations on numbers such as:

- Addition
- Subtraction
- Multiplication
- Division
- Equation solving techniques
- Variables
- Functions
- Polynomials
- Algebraic Expressions

There is no limit on the complexity of all these concepts as far as “Algebra” is concerned. Newer concepts and ideas may be added as the level of education rises. All these concepts are very useful and easy-to-understand if taught properly.
