Algebra Modules

These video learning lessons are designed to provide explanation, demonstration,
and practice for the specific topics taught in Math 0471, Math 0172, and Math 0372,
as well as some other Algebra concepts. These lessons ARE NOT a substitute for
these classes. If you are enrolled in one of these courses, attend class regularly and
use these modules as a supplement. These lessons will help you:
  • Review previously learned material in preparation for a placement exam
  • Review past knowledge needed for Math 1314, College Algebra or another college level course
  • Supplement instruction in a transitional mathematics course
Each lesson has two parts: a short video demonstration and related practice
problems. To view these lessons, you need:
  • A computer with a high speed internet connection (Cable, DSL, LAN).
  • Web browser or program to open worksheets
If you do not have a computer meeting these specifications, you may view these
lessons on campus in the Student Success Center, Math CenterLearning
Services, BC Library, or an open computer lab.
