We love to hear stories like these. It lets us know that we’re actually making a difference and it motivates us to do better. But instead of keeping all of these great comments to ourselves, we decided to share them for the world to see.

We wish we could include all the heart-warming comments that we’ve received from users over the years, but that would take a while. Instead, here’s a short video of some of the many reasons why students love Brightstorm. Enjoy!

]]>Watch as Brightstorm Math teacher Carl Horowitz explains notations used in sequences.

This Introduction to Sequences covers the definition of a sequence and how to identify a rule. There are specific sequences that have their own formulas and methods for finding the value of terms, such as arithmetic and geometric sequences. Series are an important concept that come from sequences.

Best of luck with Precalculus!

]]>This video explains a useful tip on how to approximate Delta G from Cell potential.

We hope this helps with your difficult Chemistry problems! Don’t forget to check out all of our Science video lessons

]]>In our latest video, we show you a shortcut on Change in y Over Change in x!

Here’s what’s covered in this video: How to tell the slope from a graph by using any two points on the line. Look for the change in y (rise) and put that number on top of the change in x (run).

Happy Algebra 2 studying

See how Brightstorm teacher Alissa solves a tricky Algebra problem that requires understanding of Order of Operations.

The Order of Operations, sometimes called PEMDAS, is how we know what operation to do first so that we always get the right answer. When adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing numbers, if we didn’t use the order of operations we would get different answers for the same equation.

We hope this helps you! Check out all of our Algebra and 3,000 other study videos at brightstorm.com.

]]>Intercepts can tell us a lot about linear models in real life. We need to learn how to quickly find and interpret an x or y intercept.

We’ve got tons more Algebra 2 (and Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, PreCalculus, etc.) video lessons waiting for you at **brightstorm.com**

Hope this helps & best of luck with Algebra 2!

]]>Check out this NEW free video on a topic your Algebra 2 class will likely cover: Finding the slope of a line from an equation. The y = mx + b form is very useful in finding the slope of an equation. However, we also need to know how to figure out the slope of some tricky equations shown here.

Hope this helps & GOOD LUCK this year!
