About the Course:

  • This is a fully online course that covers simplifying algebraic expressions, factoring, linear and quadratic equations, inequalities, exponentials, logarithms, functions, graphs and systems of equations. The prerequisite is one year of high school algebra.
  • The course material is broken up into weekly modules. Because many of the skills in this course build on earlier sections, it is beneficial to complete each section in sequential order. As with a typical 3-credit course, a learner should expect to spend an average of 12-14 hours per week working through the material in order to successfully complete the course.
