This math course integrates mathematics, specifically algebra with many other areas of study, including history, biology, and geography. You will develop a rich understanding of math in a relaxed and supportive learning environment. The course emphasis is using your new found algebraic skill to help you learn math reasoning in a real world context.
Math problem solving has never been made easier with this concise and straightforward course to help you understand some of the most important mathematical concepts. By the time you finish this math course you will understand how algebra is relevant to almost every aspect of your daily life!
Go in search of algebraic solutions. You’ll learn definitions, numeric properties, and basic operations and where they originated. Then you’ll learn the different physical quantities, their units of measurement, and why they’re important. You will also be shown the dimensions of length, area, and volume and how to convert their units of measurement. In addition you will learn the difference between mass and weight, and density and weight density.
Evaluate algebraic expressions by using the order of operations and the distributive property. You will learn to translate word problems into numerical ones. Then you will learn formulas for basic shapes.
Learn how to balance equations while learning more formulas, such as those used to calculate interest, distance and temperature. Then you will calculate problems involving percentages and you’ll learn how to determine a specific quantity of a component of a mixture or solution given specific concentrations.
Calculate populations, averages, length, and widths. You will also learn how to calculate consecutive integers, including consecutive odd and even integers. Then you’ll learn about rations and how to apply them to probability and odds. You will learn how to solve proportions, find out how quantities vary in equations, and how to apply these variations to scientific laws involving weight, area, and equations of lines.
Engage in outdoor activities such as jogging, boating, and traveling in order to solve equations of uniform linear motion. You will learn to calculate distance, rate (speed), and time while going in the same direction, opposite directions, and with wind and water current. Then you will learn how to use the formula that employs the same concept as the uniform linear motion equation. You’ll calculate how long it takes to finish the job, how much of the job is done, and at what rate the job is done, depending on the number of people doing the job.
You will discover some of the natural laws that govern our universe and delve into other physics concepts such as resistance, conductance, focal length, and forces. Finally you will test various problem-solving skill.

WHEN CAN I GET STARTED?
A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO COMPLETE EACH LESSON?
The interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
WHAT IF I NEED AN EXTENSION?
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.
