Course Description

Math is everywhere. In this class, you’ll gain an in-depth understanding of algebraic principles, many of which you may have seen before, and learn how to use them to solve problems that we encounter in everyday life. The online version of College Algebra will cover all of the topics that you would see in more traditional class formats, but it will present the material in a way that we hope you’ll find fresh and interesting. You will learn about functions, polynomials, graphing, complex numbers, exponential and logarithmic equations, and much more, all through exploring real-world scenarios.

This is a good basic algebra course that starts out very basic and builds nicely on those basic components. My only complaint would be that some of the problems take a huge jump in terms of difficulty and then there is a lack of explanation as how to solve. Usually the discussion forums help with this but sometimes it can be frustrating. Worthwhile taking if you need a good basic review of algebra concepts.

This is one of the best courses I have come across. The concepts are explained with realistic examples, all of which start with the basic covering. Most of the algebra that students usually find difficult will be simplified in this course. I would say doing this course may help the student to understand mathematics much more efficie

This course is far too slow paced and the examples are a bit too childish. I doubt anyone old enough for undergraduate courses will find this course efficient; it just takes too long to get to the point. I like the Udacity delivery format better, but I wish the material and syllabus were more similar to UCIrvine's Pre-Calculus offered at Coursera.

All concepts are very well explained and complemented by many exercises. Attempts are made to illustrate the conceptual material with real world situations (albeit somewhat artificial). The course is self-paced and one can retry the exercises any number of times, so that priority in on learning and not on generating marks. Printing a "MathQuill" helping table would be handy in some instances. Although I was familiar with the material, as an Engineer, the course was great to make me regain same abilities that had been lost by excessive use of electronic calculators and math software....

First math course I've completed for some time and it was fun too!. I was sort of familiar with most of the content and at first thought i could just blaze through the content but i quickly found out that stuff that you knew as a child doesn't stick for ever. Kindly enough the course begins with the basic, lesson 1 to 16 for me was mostly reviewing and mastering content I once knew. And having a solid knowledge of that was crucial for the following lessons where the math was a bit more complex. At times the grader needs to be more human, i got stuck a few times not knowing what i did wrong, a common problem with these kind of courses. I really like the Udacity style courses with fantastic short videos followed by loads of exercises so i can master the content and that there is no time limit. Hopefully the team behind this course will do more math courses, because they have left me wanting more.
