My approach would be:
Khan Academy .org

Start with the book sections you child is covering.
Use the contextual clues from the types of problems being solved.
(This would be the Chapter topic, and the section topics, and problem heading (solve for x))

Start there with a broad scan.
At the very top of the site is a search. I usually can find anything a student is working on.

Also helps to know know what level of algebra.

Finally, in most math books these days, even the ONLINE versions, the symbols are introduced in the sections the kids never read at the front of the section. Usually as an EXAMPLE problem!
