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!
Instruction will occur primarily out of the (admittedly incomplete) Algebra Wikibook:
Additional resources will be obtained from existing Algebra texts listed below:
