Remembering Skills From The Past

Your instructor will often assume that you remember skills from prerequisite coursework. For example, if you are taking Math 1314, College Algebra, we expect that you know the material taught in Math 0408, Intermediate Algebra.

But let’s get real for a moment. We all know that the human brain leaks a little from time to time and your memory may not be as sharp as you would like. It’s not that you have forgotten everything, but you’ll need to clean the rust and cobwebs off material you learned in the past. The following resources will help!
  • Brazosport College Algebra Learning Modules: These modules address all the major foundational skills taught in Prealgebra, Beginning Algebra, and Intermediate Algebra. Each module, organized by course and topic, contains a short video and a handful of practice problems (solutions included). You are welcome to discuss your work with any BC tutor or faculty member.
  • Khan Academy: The Khan Academy is an online resource created with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for Education. It is a huge library of video instruction from a variety of disciplines. In addition to reviewing prerequisite skills, these videos may also help you in the course you are currently taking.
