CLEP College algebra is a free online course that introduces you to the fundamental aspects of algebra. Algebra helps in the representation of problems or situations as mathematical expressions. It involves variables like x, y, z, and mathematical operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to form a meaningful mathematical expression. All the branches of mathematics such as trigonometry, calculus, coordinate geometry, involve the use of algebra. One simple example of an expression in algebra is 5 + 2x = 15. Algebra deals with symbols and these symbols are related to each other with the help of operators. It is not just a mathematical concept, but a skill that all of us use in our daily life without even realizing it. Understanding algebra as a concept is more important than solving equations and finding the right answer. It is useful in all the other topics of mathematics that you are going to learn in the future or you have already learned in the past.

The course begins by introducing you to the different types of mathematical operations as well as number systems. The course then gives you an insight into the standard definition of a rational number, the properties of rational numbers, and types. Square roots can be confusing when working with because most times the learner does the mistake of multiplying that number by 2 or by the power. Then, you will be introduced to monomials and polynomials. Monomials are simply numbers, but monomials can get more complicated than that. A polynomial as oppose to a monomial is a sum of monomials where each monomial is called a term. Sounds confusing right? This course simplifies these concepts with the aid of examples. Symmetry can be useful in graphing an equation because if we know one portion of the graph, then, we can also find the remaining portion of the graph. You will learn about how to test for symmetry in algebra.

Lastly, you will be introduced to the Cartesian coordinate systems which are the foundation of analytic geometry. They are also essential tools for most applied disciplines that deal with geometry, including astronomy, physics, engineering, and many more. This course outlines how to plot points on the Cartesian coordinate system, and graph a linear inequality. In elementary algebra, the quadratic formula is a formula that provides the solution to a quadratic equation. This course outlines the different methods of solving quadratic equations with the aid of examples. Sequence and series are some of the most basic topics in Arithmetic. An itemized collection of elements in which repetitions of any sort are allowed is known as a sequence, whereas series is the sum of all elements. This course analyzes the different types of sequences and series, as well as how to manipulate them. So, register for this course today and begin your next learning journey!
