- Algebra (Saylor)In this course, we explore how to use standard mathematical and business formulas, and how to translate verbal descriptions into mathematical equations to establish relationships and create predictions. In the later units, we explore how to use graphs to make these same predictions. You can apply the problem solving strategies we discuss in this course to business, science, and many other fields.
- Bay College Online Math Courses (Bay College)This page includes links to study tips and a series of course lectures: Pre-Algebra, Basic Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, College Algebra, and Calculus.
- Calculus I (Saylor)Calculus can be thought of as the mathematics of change. Because everything in the world is changing, calculus helps us track those changes. Algebra, by contrast, can be thought of as dealing with a large set of numbers that are inherently constant.
- College Algebra (Saylor)In this course, you will be introduced to basic algebraic operations and concepts, as well as the structure and use of algebra. Topics include linear inequalities and graphing, exponents, polynomials, and rational expressions. You will study basic algebraic operations and concepts, as well as the structure and use of algebra. This includes solving algebraic equations, factoring algebraic expressions, working with rational expressions, and graphing linear equations.
- Foundations of Real World Math (Saylor)We use math in our daily activities as part of almost every career you can imagine, from business to cooking, farming, or medicine. Many consider math the "universal language", since people across the world use the same numbers, formulas, and equations to help them navigate their lives. In this course, we will study fundamental math concepts and how you can use them in your life.
- Geometry (Saylor)In this course, we also study the relationships that exist between lines and angles. Urban planners study lines and angles to efficiently arrange houses, buildings, roads, and highways. Our street maps, water supply, and electrical connections all depend on these precise geometric calculations. How much space is inside a three-dimensional object? You may not realize you are using principles of geometry when you are getting ready for a trip and you need to calculate how to fit two adults, three kids, four suitcases, and a dog into your car.
