Overview

Description:
The Review in Preparation for College Algebra series contains 4 apps and 39 embedded lessons. Since the primary mode of operation of the brain is pattern generalizing, almost all of the lessons are structured as pattern-building activities leading to a mathematical generalization. To help you generalize the patterns, record any algebra in the question on paper and next to it write the correct answer which will help you see a pattern developing toward a mathematical goal. Lessons consist of open-ended questions, and when you answer a question, you receive a correct response and verbal praise if correct.

When appropriate, the apps use function as the underlying theme. When your brain connects new algebraic concepts to existing long-term memories of previously learned algebra, the brain understands the new concept or procedure in the lesson.

Audience:
High school students in Algebra I or II, and college students in remedial (developmental) algebra courses are the target users. While the lessons are teaching in nature, they also provide a review for course midterm and exams.

Technology Requirements:
The graphing calculator is required and is used to help develop patterns and provide visualizations of the algebra in the lessons. It is crucial because visualizations lead to understanding. The graphing calculator processes function representation and function behaviors, which are at the core of learning algebra through function.

The Content Author:
The author has 16 years of experience writing questions for college placement tests, for end-of-year course exams, and for pre-service teacher proficiency tests.
