A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
How does it work? Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.
Lesson 01 - Algebra: Here to Make Life Simpler
Your first lesson introduces Al-jabru, the Arabic word for algebra that means the science of restoration and canceling. You will search for algebraic solutions and learn some definitions, numeric properties, and basic operations that originated from the ancient lands where papyrus was used instead of paper.
Lesson 02 - How Do You Measure Up?
How do calories contribute to weight gain? You will answer this and other questions in this lesson. You will learn the different physical quantities, their units of measurement, and why they're important. You will also learn the difference between mass and weight, and density and weight density.
Lesson 03 - Evaluation Time Again
This lesson focuses on evaluation, but not the type of evaluation your boss might give you. You will learn about algebraic expressions by using the order of operations and the distributive property translation. You will also practice translating word problems into numerical ones.
Lesson 04 - Formula: Another Name for Equation
In this lesson, you will learn formulas for basic shapes: squares and rectangles, triangles, circles, spheres, cylinders, and cubes. You may be thinking, "Is this also a geometry course?" In a way you're correct—some aspects of geometry involve formulas, which people use in everyday life.
Lesson 05 - Balancing Acts: Equations
This lesson will teach you how to balance equations with formulas, such as those used to calculate interest, distance, and temperature. You will also learn how to translate these types of verbal equations into numerical ones. So, this is a chance to hone your mathematic reading skills, too.
Lesson 06 - Investments, Mixtures, and Percentage Changes
In this lesson, you will calculate problems involving percentages, such as how much to invest at different interest rates to obtain optimum interest, and you will learn how to determine a specific quantity of a component of a mixture or solution given specific concentrations.
Lesson 07 - Equate It in Words
The more you practice, the better you will be able to speak the language: the math language. Practice makes perfect! So, in this lesson, you will calculate populations, averages, lengths, and widths. You will also learn how to calculate consecutive integers, including consecutive odd and even integers.
Lesson 08 - Proportions and Variations
In this lesson, you will learn ratios and how to apply them to probability and odds. You will also find out how quantities vary in equations, whether directly or indirectly, and how to apply these variations to scientific laws and equations involving weight, area, and equations of lines.
Lesson 09 - Uniform Linear Motion
This lesson brings you outdoor to solve equations of uniform linear motion, with activities such as jogging, boating, and traveling. You will learn how to calculate distance, rate (speed), and time while going in the same direction, opposite directions, and with wind and water current.
Lesson 10 - Solving Rational Equations
This lesson focuses on using the formula that employs the same concept as the uniform linear motion equation. You will learn to calculate how long it takes to finish a job, how much of the job is done, and at what rate the job is done, depending on the number of people doing the job.
Lesson 11 - Algebraic Rational Equations
Discover some of the natural laws that govern the universe and delve into other physics concepts such as resistance, conductance, focal length, and forces while you learn some history of D-Day.
Lesson 12 - Potpourri of Algebraic Equations
Potpourri, anyone? Test various problem-solving skills while you meet General Sherman and experience the gloominess of the Great Depression.
