https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=6547
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=6547The University of Akron has created these excellent algebra tutorials that review some of the main topics in the discipline. There are ten lessons, which focus on topics like radicals and exponents, basic algebra, expansion, polynomials, functions, and trig curves. Each lesson has a table of contents and interactive resources like quizzes, in-line examples, and exercises. Words that appear in green or brown are hyperlinks; click on them to learn more about that topic. Tutorials are viewed as a PDF file, and users must have Acrobat Reader 3.0 or greater to access them. This is a perfect resource for anyone who needs to refresh their knowledge of basic algebra concepts, and is also great for those who are just learning about the subject.Wed, 9 Apr 2008 03:00:02 -0500College Algebra Online Tutorials
