College Algebra (BPCC Open Campus: MATH102)
Rating

This course is designed to take the concepts you learn in developmental math to expand your knowledge of algebra. This course will focus on two major algebraic concepts to learn - how to SOLVE equations and how to GRAPH equations. Throughout this course you will be challenged to recall ALL of your prior knowledge of operations of real numbers as well as your knowledge related to solving and graphing linear equations (which you should have already mastered from developmental algebra). You will use this prior knowledge to expand on learning the following objectives: solving linear & rational equations. operations of complex numbers, solving quadratic equations, solving radical & polynomial equations, solving equations with rational exponents, solving linear and compound inequalities, solving absolute value equations and inequalities, graphing linear equations & slope, understanding concepts of domain, range and function notation, finding compositions of functions, finding inverses of functions, solving and graphing exponential and logarithmic equations, solving and graphing systems of equations and inequalities, and graphing conics.

Elementary Algebra is a work text that covers the traditional topics studied in a modern elementary algebra course. It is intended for students who (1) have no exposure to elementary algebra, (2) have previously had an unpleasant experience with elementary algebra, or (3) need to review algebraic concepts and techniques.

Learn about graphing polynomials. The shape of the curve changes as the constants are adjusted. View the curves for the individual terms (e.g. y=bx ) to see how they add to generate the polynomial curve.

Rating

This Intermediate Algebra textbook was developed with consideration of neuroscience principles about learning. It is organized around the concepts of 'solving' and 'graphing'. The problem sets incorporate distributed and mixed practice to promote long term memory formation for the concepts and procedures involved in each section. This book was used in The New Science of Learning Project at Riverside City College along with the book "The New Science of Learning" by Terry Doyle and Todd Zakrajsek (2013).

This OER course using a new textbook is based a section of MAT103 Pre-Calculus. It is a preparatory course for Calculus. It builds upon the intermediate level of Algebra and makes intensive use of technology to conceptualize functions and methods of function manipulation with emphasis on quantitative change. All course content written by Fahmil Shah. Added to OER Commons by Victoria Vidal.

A Sweet Volume: Designing a Jumbo Chocolate Bar Using Polynomials
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

Playing the role of engineers in collaborations with the marketing and production teams in a chocolate factory, students design a container for a jumbo chocolate bar. The projects constraints mean the container has to be a regular trapezoidal prism. The design has to optimize the material used to construct the container; that is, students have to find the dimensions of the container with the maximum volume possible. After students come up with their design, teams present a final version of the product that includes creative branding and presentation. The problem-solving portion of this project requires students to find a mathematical process to express the multiple variables in the prism’s volume formula as a single variable cubic polynomial function. Students then use technology to determine the value for which this function has a maximum and, with this value, find the prism’s optimal dimensions.
