Resources on this website will help students in Math 220 of University of Phoenix. I created this website for my students but all Math 220 students should benefit from the resources. The 34 mini-lectures cover all concepts covered in the course. The 10 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 150+ 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? The mini-movies are marked with a
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
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.
