College Algebra

MindEdge's College Algebra learning resource exposes students to topics in algebra. Students explore the mathematics while simultaneously applying this knowledge to real-world scenarios. Students solve various problems through the lens of a statistician, using a variety of tools to develop solutions.

This modular course can be tailored to your school with webtexts, ebooks, and optional trade paperbacks available. It seamlessly integrates into all learning management systems.

The course includes pretests and self-assessments, interactive exercises, graphics, and games that appeal to a variety of learning styles. Open ended questions that apply topics to real world problems give students opportunities to apply critical thinking skills to real-world mathematics scenarios.
