Felder, Kenny M. (Connexions : Rice University, Houston, Texas, March 31, 2011)[more][less]
Abstract: This is the Conceptual Explanations part of Kenny Felder's course in Advanced Algebra II. It is intended for students to read on their own to refresh or clarify what they learned in class. This text is designed for use with the "Advanced Algebra II: Homework and Activities" and the "Advanced Algebra II: Teacher's Guide" collections (coming soon) to make up the entire course.

Ellis, Wade; Burzynski, Denny (Connexions, April 18, 2011)[more][less]
Abstract: This module is from Elementary Algebra by Denny Burzynski and Wade Ellis, Jr. Operations with algebraic expressions and numerical evaluations are introduced in this chapter. Coe cients are described rather than merely de ned. Special binomial products have both literal and symbolic explanations and since they occur so frequently in mathematics, we have been careful to help the student remember them. In each example problem, the student is "talked" through the symbolic form. Objectives of this module: understand the concept of like terms, be able to combine like terms, be able to simplify expressions containing parentheses.

Ellis, Wade; Burzynski, Denny (Connexions, May 20, 2011)[more][less]
Abstract: This module is from Elementary Algebra by Denny Burzynski and Wade Ellis, Jr. This chapter contains many examples of arithmetic techniques that are used directly or indirectly in algebra. Since the chapter is intended as a review, the problemsolving techniques are presented without being developed. Therefore, no work space is provided, nor does the chapter contain all of the pedagogical features of the text. As a review, this chapter can be assigned at the discretion of the instructor and can also be a valuable reference tool for the student.

Ellis, Wade; Burzynski, Denny (Connexions, April 26, 2011)[more][less]
Abstract: This module is from Elementary Algebra by Denny Burzynski and Wade Ellis, Jr. The basic opera tions with real numbers are presented in this chapter. The concept of absolute value is discussed both geometrically and symbolically. The geometric presentation o ers a visual understanding of the meaning of x. The symbolic presentation includes a literal explanation of how to use the de nition. Negative exponents are developed, using reciprocals and the rules of exponents the student has already learned. Scienti c notation is also included, using unique and reallife examples. Objectives of this module: be able to multiply and divide signed numbers.

Ellis, Wade; Burzynski, Denny (Connexions, May 19, 2011)[more][less]
Abstract: This module is from Elementary Algebra by Denny Burzynski and Wade Ellis, Jr. The symbols, notations, and properties of numbers that form the basis of algebra, as well as exponents and the rules of exponents, are introduced in this chapter. Each property of real numbers and the rules of exponents are expressed both symbolically and literally. Literal explanations are included because symbolic expla nations alone may be di cult for a student to interpret. This module contains the exercise supplement for the chapter "Basic Properties of Real Numbers".
