Course Description
An understanding of algebra is a foundational skill to virtually all topics in higherlevel mathematics, and it is useful in science, statistics, accounting, and numerous other professional and academic areas. This course builds a bridge between simple wholenumber arithmetic operations, such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, and algebra.
This course begins by reviewing the basic arithmetic operations and their mutual relationships, and it then goes on to develop an understanding of fractions and how to perform operations on them. Exponents and their properties are then derived, and radicals (and other roots) are presented.
This course shows how exponents and roots are related, as well as how these are related to multiplication and division. Throughout this first portion of the course, the use of symbols in place of numbers is introduced and developed, leading to an investigation into variables and algebraic relations in the latter portion of the course.
This course also describes how to graph algebraic relations and how to solve simple linear equations. Finally, the course applies these various concepts to geometry by considering some of the characteristics of triangles, rectangles, and circles, and it also applies them to basic probability and statistics.

 "I enjoyed this course. I'm also glad I could get on this course as often as I could. I liked the 5 exercises before the assignments in each chapter, plus the videos helped. The break down of the material was good too. Also I noticed that the assignments and the exercises addressed my working knowledge of my work and the test addressed my verbal knowledge, which is good. I notice that I have some problems with verbal knowledge. This has to do with me and maybe a health problem. I'm glad to know this. It tells me what to work on....I enjoyed this course.
