I am a pretty numeric (although I balk at saying that on a Math's forum) adult, but I want to bring my skills up to speed on things like Algebra. Like a lot of people the last time I did Algebra was when I was at school.

I'm not looking to solve the mysteries of the universe - just acheive a basic competence with algebra to begin with, and was wondering if anyone knew of a course/book/dvd etc that you can follow at home that explains thingsclearly.

I'm sure I should be able to pick it up fairly easily if I can find a resource that explains things well and actually explains the technical terms before using them.

Thanks!
