There are thousands of algebra books out there that break down algebra to its easiest components. Many learning styles in these books are different so take the time to go through them and find one that looks like you might understand or one that accommodates your learning style. Many books explain some algebra concepts better than other. Choose a variety of books or online courses. You can get a live tutor. It will be much easier to learn from someone who s already familiar with the concepts of algebra. There are online communities where people discuss their algebra problems and help each other. Remember though that even if you are a member of one the many popular interactive algebra communities you still need to study and practice a lot.

Division with remainders. Your child will most likely come across or ask about situations where division “does not work.” These can be explained with the introduction of the remainder. It is an important idea to understand as the division of larger numbers will require the “carrying” of this remainder.

Learn one table at a time. Select one multiplication table to learn at a time. Start with the simple tables such as 2s, 10s, 5s, and 11s. By the time you learn the more difficult tables such as the 7s and 8s, you will already know several facts. Remember, 1 x 4 is the same as 4 x 1 so you only have to learn half of the multiplication table because the other half is just written the other way.

I have seen a lot of kids quickly pass off their 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s. These tables have an obvious pattern and are much easier to learn. Then there is a serious slow down as kids hit the 3’s, 4’s, and 6’s. By the time they get to the 7’s, 8’s, and 9’s they’ve decided that multiplication is way too hard, and math isn’t their thing.
