Description

This course covers algebraic topics including integers and real numbers, solving equations, graphing linear equations, polynomials, radicals and square roots, factoring, exponents, and applications (word problems). The course curriculum aligns to content that is common to most high school algebra 1 courses as well as college level developmental mathematics. Content is taught through interactive video lectures that include guided practice problems and the associated live action solutions. The curriculum is organized into 10 chapters (topics), containing a total of 105 video lectures that are approximately 10 minutes in length each. The course culminates with end of chapter assessments to check for skills mastery. Answer Keys are included for all assessments. The instructor for this course is a certified math instructor with over 10 years of middle school, high school, and college level teaching experience.

Who is the target audience?

- Middle School, High School, or Early College Level Students

About the Instructor

Student

College Instructional Leader: Mathematics and Sciences

I have been using projects, games, cooperative learning, and interactive activities to teach mathematics at the middle school, high school, and college levels for the last 8 years.

I run a highly interactive classroom that promotes student participation and critical thinking. In a typical class period (my class periods are 100 minutes long), I generally limit my speaking time to two-20 minute sessions. These sessions are broken up by class projects, assignments, and explorative activities that engage the students with the material (often in small group settings).
