Foundations of College Algebra reviews
Simple enough concepts to understand, can be used as a refresher before College Algebra.
Nice and Simple instructions that start you off at the basics and increases over time.
Math has never been my favorite subject but the tutorials made it easy to learn and follow along.
The instructor clearly showed the fundamentals of algebra.
This course and this website are very helpful. I really enjoyed it and I feel an immense sense of satisfaction.
Great review: clear explanations.
easy and basic
Great course. The tutorials are detailed for understanding
The class was well done. Jogged my memory after many years since taking a math class.
The videos talked a little slow for me, but overall the course was incredibly helpful!
Great way to get back into math if someone has been out of school form sometime.
I don't think that they should add a credit value to this class! I don't like it shouldn't be up to the institute.
I struggled through this course, but in the end I got a lot out of it.
The tutorials were helpful. I learned a couple more math terms and formulas that I had never seen before.
hard, but worth it!
Very informative and easy
