Course Description
Beginner to Intermediate Algebra is intended for students who need to gather a basic understanding of how to perform Algebra operations. This course will benefit current students and adult learners who need to know how to perform basic Algebra operations which involve simplifying, factoring, or solving equations in the form of inequalities, fractions, exponents and word problems.
Even from their childhood days, most people have at least a basic grasp of arithmetic: addition and subtraction of numbers, for instance. As we master these basic operations, we begin to search for a more systematic and rigorous understanding of the behavior of numbers (particularly, sets of numbers) and functional relationships. This search is where we make the step from arithmetic to algebra. Algebra is the systematic study of numbers (or, more generally, quantity) and their relationships at an abstract level. By studying algebra, you can acquire the ability to analyze the relationships between numbers generally, rather than simply between particular numbers. These abilities pave the way for understanding other areas of mathematics such as trigonometry and calculus.
