Welcome to this research guide for College Algebra. This guide will help you find resources that you can use for your course project.
This course gives foundational concepts for the use of mathematics in solving everyday problems when some quantity is unknown. It addresses mathematical expressions and linear and nonlinear equations and inequalities. The course is divided into three units. Unit 1 deals with expressions and includes properties of numbers, dividing by zero, signed numbers, absolute value, exponents, polynomials, factoring, and functions. Unit 2 addresses linear equations and inequalities and gives applications of linear equations, graphing, and linear systems. Unit 3 addresses nonlinear expressions and equations and discusses rational expressions, radical expressions, quadratic equations, exponentials, and logarithms. There are no college-level prerequisites for the course. A scientific calculator is essential, specifically for the last lesson on exponentials and logarithms.
