Description

This course covers algebraic topics including graphing linear equations, slope, intercepts, domain and range of functions, midpoint and distance formulas, parallel and perpendicular lines, graphing inequalities, and transformations on the coordinate plane. The course curriculum aligns to content that is common to most high school algebra 1 and algebra 2 courses as well as college level algebra. Content is taught through interactive video lectures that include guided practice problems and the associated live action solutions. The curriculum is organized into 2 chapters (sections), containing a total of 25 video lectures that are approximately 10 minutes in length each. The instructor for this course is a certified math instructor with over 10 years of middle school, high school, and college level teaching experience.

The content of this course is included within our comprehensive beginning algebra and advanced algebra courses.

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).
