I've been using s-cool but I am still not understanding it. I know I have a habit of overthinking things.. I learned some of the more basic stuff with the Hands on apps on my android phone where it used pawns to explain. I found this method really easy, but I did start to struggle toward the last few lessons on the 2nd app. I have yet to do the last one on that app as I repeated one of the lessons a few times as I am struggling to remember the theory behind taking away from a number that isn't already there. Does anyone know if there is something simular to the hands on apps that I've been using that teaches a specific visual way for quadratics? I'm a very visual learner and I learn by doing it lots of times and practicing lots. I'm dyslexic as well so the app was perfect for me.

Perhaps if you explain what you understand of the subject, we might be able to help. In terms of visualising them, can you not just sketch whatever quadratic you are dealing with? Here's a video on quadratic inequalities that describes itself as "visual". Thanks from topsquark

Thanks I added the question on here. My boyfriend was helping me with this one last night. Basically from what I remember (not looking at notes)

A has to be something that is a factor of C and adds up to B. I think I am understanding it somewhat more now at the time I posted this I was clueless as to how I should do it so I am going to practice some.
