Overview
Math is everywhere. In this class, you’ll gain an indepth 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 realworld scenarios.
Why Take This Course?
In this course, you will learn...
 To translate word problems into mathematical expressions or equations
 To manipulate algebraic expressions and solve equations
 To graph different types of functions and to understand the relationship between a function’s graph and its equation
 To model growth and decay

I took this course to fill some gaps of knowlegde I had my mathematical knowlegde. The good thing is that you can follow your own schedule and it became a bit of a hobby for me to finish this course as I love learning Maths and because this would be the...

First of all, let me preface this by saying I am a college graduate brushing up on his mathematics skills for the GRE, so my perspective might be skewed, but I found this course to be extremely annoying, not only is the course broken down into a million...

Everything is fine until you get to the third section where you actually start doing some algebra and then the answer checking stops working. Multiple complaints in the forum and no response. Course is marked as deprecated so not a huge surprise.

I am about 1/3 of the way through the course and I am really enjoying it. It's a great way to fill in the gaps in my knowledge and to master questions that used to seem confusing  sure some of the content is easy, but you can always play the videos x2 speed and skip the explanations if you're in a hurry.

I guess the course is dropped by Udacity because the MathQuill bug is not solved in 5 months. Very disappointed! I guess I'll drop the class if I don't see my ticket resolved about this issue.
