This course contains both content that reviews or extends concepts and skills learned in previous grades and new, more abstract concepts in algebra. Students will gain proficiency in computation with rational numbers (positive and negative fractions, positive and negative decimals, whole numbers, and integers) and algebraic properties. New concepts include solving two-step equations and inequalities, graphing linear equations, simplifying algebraic expressions with exponents, i.e. monomials and polynomials, factoring, solving systems of equations, and using matrices to organize and interpret dataAn Introduction to Complex Numbers

Highlights of Calculus is a series of short videos that introduces the basic ideas of calculus — how it works and why it is important. The intended audience is high school students, college students, or anyone who might need help understanding the subject.In addition to the videos, there are summary slides and practice problems complete with an audio narration by Professor Strang. You can find these resources to the right of each video.This resource is also available on Highlights for High School.About the InstructorProfessor Gilbert Strang is a renowned mathematics professor who has taught at MIT since 1962. Read more about Prof. StrangAcknowledgementsSpecial thanks to Professor J.C. Nave for his help and advice on the development and recording of this program.The video editing was funded by the Lord Foundation of Massachusetts.Calculus for Beginners and Artists

This free and open online course in Calculus 1 was produced by the WA State Board for Community & Technical Colleges [http://sbctc.edu].Calculus is the mathematics of CHANGE and almost everything in our world is changing.Calculus is among the most important and useful developments of human thought, and, even though it is over 300 years old, it is still considered the beginning and cornerstone of modern mathematics. It is a wonderful and beautiful and useful set of ideas and techniques You will see the fundamental ideas of this course over and over again in future courses in mathematics, the sciences (physical, biological and social) as well as in economics, engineering and others.But calculus is an intellectual step up from your previous mathematics courses. Many of the ideas are more carefully defined, and they have both a functional and a graphical meaning Some of the algorithms are more complicated, and in many cases you will need to decide on the appropriate algorithm to use. And there is a huge variety of applications, too many to be able to discuss each one in class in detail.This module is part of the Open Course Library, a collection of shareable course materials created for faculty to use in their classes.

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=519785
This online course comes from the Open Learning Initiative (OLI) by Carnegie Mellon. “The course includes self-guiding materials and activities, and is ideal for independent learners, or instructors trying out this course package.”״Does excessive exposure to violent video games cause violent behavior? Does increased gun availability cause more crime or less? This course examines the nature of causal claims and the statistical sorts of evidence used to support them." 'Our material is delivered in three forms - Concept modules, Case studies, and the Causality Lab. The Case Studies are a collection of over one hundred short news pieces (1-3 pages) - that each deal with some study concerned with a causal claim. They are listed in the Syllabus as part of the Appendix - and they can viewed alphabetically or in hierarchy by topical area (e.g. Health, Social Sciences, etc.). You will read several of them as part of the concept modules, but they are interesting in their own right and we urge you to explore them and find your own over the web. If you find a particularly interesting study we have not included, please send us the URL by email <oli-help@lists.andrew.cmu.edu>, and we will try to incorporate the study into the repository.The Causality Lab is a virtual environment to simulate the science of causal discovery. The lab contains a "true" causal model behind the scenes that was created by the instructor (or another student), and your job is to set-up experiments, collect data, create hypotheses, and compare the predicitons from your hypotheses against the data to find the truth. Causality Lab exercises are included as a regular part of the course, but they are also available as a series of stand alone lessons accessible from the Syllabus in Unit 7: Causality Lab Lessons.The "Concept modules" are meant to present the basic concepts and terminology behind Causal and Statistical Reasoning. Each is meant to cover about the same amount of material delivered in a textbook chapter. Each includes text, pictures, movies, simulations, questions for you to answer, and a quiz at the end of the module that you might be assigned to take for credit. They take anywhere between one to five hours to complete. We have grouped the modules into five topical areas: •Area 1: Causal Theories •Area 2: Statistical Evidence: Association and Independence •Area 3: Causal Theories --> Statistical Evidence •Area 4: Statistical Evidence -->Causal Theories: Problems •Area 5: Statistical Evidence -->Causal Theories: Strategies'
