Problem Solving and Success Strategies
How do you prepare for a post-test? What is the learning strategy that you use? In the homework, you
can rely heavily on the view an example and the help me solve this features. Do those help you learn the
material w

Let's Look at Ratios (graded)
Did you drive to work today? If you did, you used a ratio. Driving 30 miles per hour involves a ratio or
proportion of two numbers. It can be written as a fraction, (30 miles)/(1 hour), or the way we most
commonly see it: 30

Understanding Equations (graded)
Being successful in mathematics requires understanding as opposed to simple memorization. For
example, the formula to find the perimeter of a rectangle is P = 2L + 2W (where L is length and W is
width). Memorizing the form

Looking Ahead
Class, looking back over the Terminal Course Objectives for this course, what are you looking forward to
learning more about throughout your education and career?
I'm looking forward to learn a lot more when it comes to numbers, I have anoth

Exponents and Polynomials in the Real World
Have you ever seen a semi truck with a curved truck bed rather than a flat one? Why are most lenses
curved? These are just a few examples in which we have real-world examples that make use of
exponents and polyn

Communication is considered an important component of mathematics education in order for deep
learning to occur. Choose a specific algebra concept that you think you understand well, and explain it in
your own words. Then, present a math problem for your

Linear Relationships
Did you drive to work or school today? When you are driving at a constant speed, the amount of gas left
in the tank can typically be modeled by a linear equation. The equation y = -2x + 15 would represent a
car that has a full 15-gall

Fractions and mixed numbers are often used in everyday life. Discuss a real-life example in which you
would need to add, subtract, multiply, or divide fractions or mixed numbers, and show the math.
When cooking we often use a measuring system that involve

Think of an example of a proportion you use in your life. List the proportion, explain its meaning, and
dont forget to include its fraction equivalent.
An example of this could be our pay. We are all either hourly or salary. If we are hourly, then an exam

Find a linear relationship (equation) that you would use or rely on in your field when you receive your
degree, and explain what it is and how it is used. Identify the initial condition, such as the full tank of gas
above, and the rate of change. For a li

Polynomial Functions
Who uses this?
Doctors can use polynomials to model blood flow.
A monomial is a number or a product of numbers and variables with whole number exponents. A
polynomial is a monomial or a sum or difference of monomials. Each monomial in
