• DAVID BENCOMO Course Module: Algebraic Expressions 1
Course Topic: Simplifying algebraic expressions without using algebra blocks
Comment: It would be nice if you had a little bit more clearer explanation of what you are supposed to be doing,,,the interacting part of this course is really lacking 2012-08-31 18:08:52
