What Will I Learn?

- Grasp and apply key algebraic skills that are essential for college-level math courses
- Reason, analyze and apply fundamental algebraic skills with greater confidence, ease and efficiency
- Simplify any algebraic expression with real numbers using the proper order of operations
- Solve equations and inequalities understanding how they can be used for problem-solving
- Operate polynomials with the correct use of rules of exponents and proper techniques for all operations

Requirements

- Some students approach mathematics with the passive idea of viewing the course as "a spectator" show/event. This is an active event: you will need as little as paper and pencil to join me on this journey to increase your skills. Couple this activity with a positive attitude and an open mind. Then, the world of mathematics becomes an open space where creativity and logic can help you solve problems and you can learn to appreciate its power and application.

Description

Many college-bound students find themselves unprepared for college mathematics courses. Universities nationwide are enrolling a greater proportion of their incoming freshman in developmental/remedial math courses. This course aims to present* key fundamental math and algebra skills* to help prepare you to succeed and be prepared for college-level mathematics courses.

Having a solid grasp of *fundamental algebra skills* will enrich your college math courses experiences. A variety of teaching techniques will keep you engaged, participating and asking relevant questions that will steer you away from memorizing and guide you to understanding. Study skills will be taught and constant assessment will be introduced to encourage memory retrieval and mastery.

This course is structured as a personal learning experience for the student who is learning these concepts for the first time. Video lectures, presentations, quiz assessments, examples demonstrated by audio and visual representations, review and exercises sheets in .pdf format are included to aid and reinforce your learning experience. A variety of examples ranging from easy to challenging problems are displayed and worked for the student to view and review as many times as needed. Each section is equipped with resources that can be printed as reference material and for the student to read and practice on their own. The student will be encouraged to complete assessments throughout course to grant immediate feedback as to how well the student is retaining and learning the information.

Most students for whom this course is designed will need to dedicate a minimum of one to two weeks depending on prior knowledge to complete course and complete the coursework provided for the maximum learning effect. Others who may be considered faster learners bringing prior knowledge to the table, may complete in as little as four days if minimal practice is exerted which I do not recommend.

Completing
Who is the target audience?

- Ever find yourself wondering what all those high school math courses were all about? Has it been a few years since you've had any kind of math and find yourself exploring the possibility of going back to college? Are you in a college-entry math course and find the pace overwhelming because certain algebra foundations are shaky or perhaps the professor is not taking the time to review skills you are supposed to come equipped with? If you answered yes to any of these, this course was designed specifically for you in mind. If you have successfully completed any Algebra I, II or advanced algebra class (achieving a grade of B or higher), this course will be too elementary for you. No prior algebra knowledge is required. However, you are advised to refresh your arithmetic skills as a very brief overview will be presented to merely remind you of such prerequisite.
