About the Course
High school algebra covers a broad spectrum of mathematics and introduces a bunch of mathematical terms you may have never heard of before. This course helps break down the most common components of algebra into smaller pieces with engaging and easy-to-understand video lessons. Within each lesson, you can also take a short quiz to let you know which areas you're excelling at and where you could use some improvement. At first glance, algebraic formulas and equations can look intimidating, but with the video lessons in the Common Core Math Algebra course, you'll be able to split up each aspect of an equation to make problems easier to tackle. This course provides fun and simple ways to answer the following questions you might have about algebra:
- What is an algebraic expression?
- What are terms, factors, and coefficients?
- What is a linear equation?
- What is an inequality?
- What is a polynomial?
- What is a quadratic equation?
- What are the five main exponent properties?
The instructors in these videos explain how to use algebra and why it's important, but they also know it's not always an easy or stimulating subject. The lessons use examples and stories that you can relate to in order to make the concepts easier to follow, absorb and remember. You'll find that you really will use algebra in big and small ways in your work and recreational time.
|Algebraic Expressions||Start off by learning what is meant by an expression in algebra. Learn how to find relationships, evaluate simple expressions, interpret complex expressions, and rewrite algebraic expressions.|
|Linear Equations||This course introduces you to graphing in algebra, showing you the different parts of a graph, how to find points on a graph, and how to graph an undefined slope. We'll teach you what linear equations are, how to write them, and how to solve them.|
|Linear Inequalities||First we'll define an inequality, then we'll teach you how to solve and graph linear inequalities. This chapter also includes practice lessons and problems.|
|Quadratics||Learn what a quadratic equation is and how to apply rules to quadratic equations. Lessons cover factoring quadratics, completing a square, deriving a quadratic formula and solving non-standard quadratic equations.|
|Exponents and Exponential Functions||This course breaks down exponents into five basic properties, shows you how to define zero and a negative number, defines an exponential function and teaches you how to simplify expressions using exponents.|
|Polynomials||Lessons in this chapter cover adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing polynomials. You'll also be introduced to the Remainder Theorem, Pascal's Triangle, and the Binomial Theorem and learn about polynomial identities.|
|Rational and Radical Expressions & Equations||Learn what's meant by rational and radical equations and how to add, subtract, multiply and divide these types of equations.|
|Systems of Equations||Use this chapter to learn how to solve systems of linear and non-linear equations using graphing and substitution. Find out what a constraint is and identify solutions in a system with constraints.|
|Matrices||Check out how to use matrices to represent systems of equations. You can also learn addition and subtraction with matrices, the properties of matrix multiplication, vectors, zero and identity matrices and finding the inverse of a matrix.|
|Sequences and Series||Find and classify arithmetic and geometric sequences, calculate arithmetic and geometric series, and use the summation notation in a mathematical series in this chapter.|
