How on earth are animals and business related? You’ve heard it before, but we’ll say it again: 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.

The following topic will be covered. There will be two midterms and one final exam. There are no deadlines unless you are in the SJSU pilot. However, the material will be released on a weekly schedule on a Wednesday as far as is possible.
