Getting Started in MATH 135, Fall 2011 How MATH 135 Is Structured The course is divided into two parts. 1. The algebra part of the course will feel more familiar and will cover such topics as divisibility, greatest common divisors, primes and lots of other interesting material. 2. The mathematical language part of the course allows us to think about and describe what we are doing. Since this course emphasizes proof rather than computation, we will need to learn the language of proof. The mathematical language part of the course is done wholly outside of class and requires you to read, watch a video summary of what you have read, and test your understanding with a quiz. The algebra part of the course is more traditional and consists of lectures and assignments. The algebra makes very heavy use of mathematical language, so it is very important that you complete the tasks associated with learning the language on time. The two parts of the course happen concurrently.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
