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 this course is for:
- Middle School, High School, or Early College Level Students
- Students preparing for a college placement test
- Home-schooled students
I have invested 25 years of my career in building partnerships across workforce, industry, and education.
Through that work, its clear that most organizations struggle with internal conflicts and communication breakdowns. Many operations are challenged to break free from the shackles of status-quo complacency, and the result is operational stagnation.
Yet, thriving operations have found a way to generate powerful outcomes. Not because they have better strategies or more talented team members, but because they have succeeded in forging thriving networks of collaboration by aligning Culture, Strategy, and Leadership.
I incorporate the spirit of collaboration into all of my work, as an educator, a leader, and a facilitator, forging alignment to deliver high-impact outcomes is at the core of work.
