https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=7425
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=7425Presented by HippoCampus, a project of the Monterey Institute for Technology and Education, this free online course "is a study of the basic skills and concepts of elementary algebra, including language and operations on sets, operations on signed numbers, simple linear equations and inequalities in one variable, operations on polynomials (including beginning techniques of factoring), integer exponents, brief introduction to radicals, introduction to graphing, and applications." The course has seven chapters: Basic algebra principles; Linear equations and set theory; Inequalities & absolute values; Graphs of linear equations; Exponents, monomials, and polynomials; Factoring polynomials and solving quadratic equations; and Rational and radical expressions and equations. Each is broken into two or three lessons containing objectives, readings, multimedia components, and sample problems. The Topic View section of the site provides the concepts taught in the course in either alphabetical or sequential order for educators looking for more specific and targeted supporting materials for an introductory algebra classroom.Thu, 17 Jul 2008 03:00:02 -0500Introductory Algebra: Algebra 1B

https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=7424Presented by HippoCampus, a project of the Monterey Institute for Technology and Education, this free online course follows up on a previous course, Algebra 1A, which "develops algebraic fluency by providing students with the skills needed to solve equations and perform important manipulations with numbers, variables, equations, and inequalities. In addition, the course develops proficiency with operations involving monomial and polynomial expressions." Along with providing a syllabus, the Course View section of the site is broken into three units: Exponents, monomials, and polynomials; Relations, functions, & quadratic equations; and Rational & radical expressions & equations. Each unit has five lessons, and each lesson has objectives, readings, multimedia components, assessments, and answers. Also, for instructors looking for more targeted teaching tools, the Topic View of the course presents both a sequential and alphabetical list of individual concepts covered in the course.Wed, 16 Jul 2008 03:00:03 -0500Polynomials, Rational Functions

https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=5545The introduction to this site remarks, "If you need help in college algebra, you have come to the right place." Their statement is accurate, as the staff members at the West Texas A&M University's Virtual Math Lab have done a fine job creating a series of online algebra tutorials for students and anyone else who might be returning to the world of algebra. First-time visitors should look at their online guide to the tutorials to learn how their tutorials are organized. After that, they should feel free to browse through any of the 59 tutorials offered here. Each tutorial contains information about learning objectives, full explanations, and numerous examples of how to correctly solve problems.Mon, 10 Dec 2007 03:00:01 -0600Understanding Algebra
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4974
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4974Understanding Algebra is a textbook written by James Brennan of Boise State University. The entire contents of the textbook are located on this site, and a PDF version is also available through the authorâ€™s Website. Basic topics in algebra are covered in the nine chapters of this book, and examples are dispersed throughout those chapters to facilitate a greater understanding of the concepts. This textbook presents the foundational elements of algebra in a clear, thoughtful manner that everyone will be able to appreciate. Students in introductory algebra courses, or those looking to review basic concepts for a higher-level math course will find this resource extremely useful.Mon, 12 Nov 2007 03:00:03 -0600Practical Algebra Lessons
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4972
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4972Brought to you by Elizabeth Stapel and purplemath.com, this collection of learning modules contains over 100 mathematics modules designed to teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced algebra concepts. Some algebra topics include graphic linear equations; adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing polynomials; and solving linear and literal equations. Intermediate algebra topics include domain and range, even and odd functions, factor theorem, and solving systems of non-linear equations. Finally, advanced algebra topics include complex fractions, complex numbers, matrix addition and subtraction, and partial fraction decomposition. This is a great reference and teaching resource for teachers and students of introductory algebra courses. This is an especially good resource for teachers looking for in-class illustrations of fundamental algebra concepts.Fri, 19 Oct 2007 03:00:01 -0500algebasics

https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1048Under the motto, "Show me how, now!" algebasics is a fine online mathematics instructional resource that takes young and old alike through the basics of algebra. The breadth of the material is divided into sixteen sections, which begin with, appropriately, "the basics", and proceed all the way to a section on applying algebra to real-world situations. Each section asks users to solve a number of problems so that they will gain mastery of each concept. The interface deployed here is quite user-friendly, as each problem is narrated so that users will better understand the process needed to complete each problem successfully. Overall, it's a well-designed introduction to this area of the mathematical universe, and one that is very easy to use.Sun, 4 Feb 2007 03:00:05 -0600
