The notes in the first group are on basic *math*, rather than
basic *algebra*: The kind of math you'd take before taking a
basic algebra course.

These are notes on basic algebra. (Not all the topics that I cover in class have been written up yet.) The notes here are fairly complete, but sometimes the examples are given without much explanation.
