## Introduction

The Institute of Learning will like to introduce this textbook project: Back to the Basics of Mathematics. This is a textbook that covers all the topics and lessons from Kindergarten all the way to Algebra 2. The textbook is basically for every student; elementary school students, middle school students, high school students and college students. The book serves to provide students with a solid foundation in Mathematics.

Eventually we hope to have resources for every single Math topic. Here on this website you can get videos and pictures for topics from all grades. The Institute of Learning has broken the topics to different grades but students do not have to use this format. They can simply choose a lesson, master it and then move on.

The textbook provides students with over 100 problems for each lesson to help them get a lot of practice until they master the lesson.

Mathematics is a unique field. There are numerous lessons and topics within it but they all share basic principles. We will do our best to break down all the topics so you can understand all the topics discussed thoroughly.

This book can be used as a Pre-Algebra textbook, Algebra 1 textbook, Geometry textbook or Algebra 2 textbook. It can also be used as a supplement to whatever textbook a student may have.

I am suggesting two methods to use this book.

Method 1: You can study the themes thoroughly and teach others as you learn each theme. When you finish learning the themes, you will be ready to take the ACT Math test. You will also be ready to take Pre-calculus and Calculus.

Method 2: You can use the grade level categories. This is the method used in Nigeria and many other countries but it might take some time before we can start using this method in the United States. In Nigeria, all 7th graders use the Math 7 book, all 8th graders use the Math 8 book and so on. Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 is included all through the curriculum. This method does not repeat the material but expects that students can build on their knowledge from previous classes.

## Here is a video describing the project

Students can register to take a class with me. These classes will simply help students master the material. When you register feel free to ask any questions you have. Thank you for taking time to learn the material and thank you for using the videos. I also want to encourage you to make your videos and share them with the class. Videos on any math concept will be appreciated. Also please make videos on life lessons and encourage others to grow.
