Introduction[edit | edit source]

The scope of this learning experience is to study basic mathematical concepts required for adult learners at a college or university level. Learners will become proficient at solving linear and quadratic equations, graphing linear and quadratic equations, functions, exponents and logarithms, and applying these concepts to real world problems.

Don't worry, you will have fun!

Study Materials[edit | edit source]

Instruction will occur primarily out of the (admittedly incomplete) Algebra Wikibook:

Additional resources will be obtained from existing Algebra texts listed below:

Tutors[edit | edit source]

  • Mirwin 09:39, 18 August 2006 (UTC) I can help out with some mentoring or tutoring where materials are difficult to understand and possibly help fill gaps in available materials. I have a B.S. in Engineering Physics so I have done quite a bit of practical algebra even if it is a bit rusty in spots. Participants drop queries or requests for assistance on my talk page and we will create some appropriate space from there to work from.
  • --MarkyParky 22:58, 25 August 2006 (UTC) I can help out when people are stuck on some problem, or just need something explained from a different perspective.

Recommended Reading Material[edit | edit source]

The following books contain motivational works by mathematicians that put mathematics into context or exercises that illuminate the study of mathematics that are accessible to someone with a high school education. While this site provides a supportive community of peers and teachers, nothing beats having a well-organized and well-written text that you can carry around and study anywhere to learn from.
