Note that a graphing calculator is
NOT required but is especially helpful
in this class. I will be using a
TI-84 C (color) in my mini-movies.

Math 219 - Introduction to College Algebra

(With 54 mini-lectures, 18 handouts & cheat sheets, and over 135 mini-movies)

This course introduces algebraic concepts providing a solid foundation for college algebra. Topics range from properties of real numbers, the order of operations, and algebraic expressions to solving equations and inequalities. Additional topics include polynomials, factoring methods, rational and radical expressions as well as graphing and functions.

Textbook: Introductory and intermediate algebra for college students (5th ed.)
Author: Blitzer, R.
Publisher: Upper Saddle River, NJ: Pearson (2016).

Resources on this website will help students in Math 219 of University of Phoenix. I created this website for my students but all Math 219 students should benefit from the resources. The 54 mini-lectures cover all concepts covered in the course. The 18 handouts provide summary information from the textbook reading assignments (Quick Reference Sheets) and Teaching Tips (things I would tell you if you were taking my class in person). The 135+ mini-movies demonstrate step-by-step solutions to similar problems for every problem on the Study Plan, every problem on the weekly Checkpoints, and every problem on the final exam. The mini-movies are short videos made especially for visual learners, which includes 60% to 80% of us, and for online students who need extra help learning algebra.

  What Are the Mini-movies?  

What are the mini-movies? The mini-movies are marked with a Jolene's SHOW ME icon icon. They are MP4 video files that contain a teaching presentation with an audio track. These were recorded in my office (not in a live lecture) so they are short, but very dense with compact information. Movie controls are available so you can replay, pause, and skip sections.

At times, a mini-movie may stop abruptly in the middle of play or it might not load at all. The website bandwidth that I pay for only allows 3-4 movies downloaded at a time. So if your mini-movie stops in the middle or won't download properly, refresh/reload your browser window and it should work.
