Please help me get better at algebra. I'm so bad at math.

Not possible. Mathematical ability is genetically determined. You can't change your genes.

My condolences.

I bet OP isn't even proficient with Banach Fields

Not sure if trolling...

More or less anyone can become good enough to complete an undergrad degree at least, unless they're clinically retarded.

start from pre-algebra and work back through it.
do lots of example problems for each concept until you've memorized the procedure.

The whole "math is genetic" is a /sci/ meme. Some people are dumb/gullible enough to actually believe but I think most people here don't take it too seriously.

>>7773667
Try learning it from the perspective of geometry. All the concepts of basic algebra have a geometric equivalent.

I also recommend "Pre-calculus" by Axler for an excellent text covering everything from Algebra to Trig to Series

>>7773667
Just start from the very beginning at khanacademy. Watch the fucking videos even if they seem too 'simple' or you feel like you already understand it.

yep. calling something a meme is a meme itself

math is not a spectator sport

>>7773667
What type of algebra? 1st year is simple stuff you can teach yourself, 2nd year is not too much harder
But if you mean algebra as in stuff like linear algebra, then help may be deserved
>>
First step is to stop reading shitty fiction books like the iliad.

>To learn math
Precalculus Mathematics in a Nutshell: Geometry, Algebra, Trigonometry by Simmons

>To learn how to think about math right
Algebra by Gelfand and Shen
Functions and Graphs by Gelfand, Glagoleva, and Shnol
The Method of Coordinates by Gelfand, Glagoleva, and Kirillov
Trigonometry by Gelfand and Saul
