Algebra 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. Together with geometry, analysis, topology, combinatory, and number theory, algebra is one of the main branches of pure mathematics.

 

Example Problems for 2nd Grade Algebra:

2nd grade math - Addition problem:

 There are 12 boxes in the store. We bought 10 more boxes for the store. How many boxes are there in the store now?

Solution:

  In 12 boxes in the store

  And then we bought 10 boxes in the store

  12 + 10 = 22
