# College Algebra V2

## by Harrisburg Area Community College

To subscribe to an iTunes U course, click View in iTunes.

#### Course Description

Topics covered in this course are: fundamental algebraic operations, exponents and radicals, systems of equations, higher degree equations, logarithms, matrices, and inequalities.

This course, taught on campus twice per week for 75 minutes, was primarily recorded at the Lancaster Campus of Harrisburg Area Community College. The video recordings are unedited clips from a live classroom. The prerequisite for this course is intermediate algebra. This course requires the use of a graphing calculator such as a TI-83 or TI-84.

Harrisburg Area Community College has multiple College Algebra iTunes U courses. They were created by different instructors. My course was published the second in iTunes U chronologically, thus the label V2.

After each lesson you will perform a self assessment to monitor your progress in the course. An estimated time need to perform each self assessment is stated in each post. Answer keys for each self assessment are provided in each post.

115 | WolframAlpha | Remember the Star Trek computer? It's finally happening--with Wolfram|Alpha. Building on 25 years of development led by Stephen Wolfram, Wolfram|Alpha has rapidly become the world's definitive source for instant expert knowledge and computation. Across thousands of domains--with more continually added--Wolfram|Alpha uses its vast collection of algorithms and data to compute answers and generate reports for you. Parts of Wolfram|Alpha are used in the Apple Siri Assistant; this app gives you access to the full power of the Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine. Domains covered by Wolfram|Alpha include: MATHEMATICS Elementary Math Numbers Plotting Algebra Matrices Calculus Geometry Trigonometry Discrete Math Number Theory Applied Math Logic Functions STATISTICS & DATA ANALYSIS Descriptive Statistics Regression Statistical Distributions Probability PHYSICS Mechanics Electricity & Magnetism Optics Thermodynamics Relativity Nuclear Physics Quantum Physics Particle Physics Statistical Physics Astrophysics CHEMISTRY Elements Compounds Ions Solutions Reactions Chemical Thermodynamics MATERIALS Alloys Minerals Crystallography Plastics Woods ENGINEERING Acoustics Aeronautics Electric Circuits Fluid Mechanics Steam Tables Psychrometrics Refrigeration ASTRONOMY Star Charts Astronomical Events Planets Moons Space Weather Stars Pulsars Galaxies Star Clusters Nebulae Astrophysics EARTH SCIENCE Geology Geochronology Geodesy Earthquakes Tide Data Atmosphere Climate LIFE SCIENCES Animals & Plants Dinosaurs DNA Sequence Lookup Proteins Genomes Metabolic Pathways COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES Cellular Automata Substitution Systems Turing Machines Computational Complexity Algebraic Codes Fractals Image Processing UNITS & MEASURES Conversions Comparisons Dimensional Analysis Industrial Measures Paint DATES & TIMES Date Computations Time Zones Calendars Holidays Geological Time WEATHER Current & Historical Weather Forecasts Wind Chill Hurricanes Clouds Climate PLACES & GEOGRAPHY Maps Projections Geodesy Navigation Distances Geomagnetism Geocoding Countries Cities Elevation Data Oceans Lakes Rivers Islands Mountains PEOPLE & HISTORY People Genealogy Names Occupations Political Leaders Historical Events, Periods & Countries Historical Money CULTURE & MEDIA Books Movies Video Games Fictional Characters Mythology Television Programs Awards MUSIC Musical Notes Intervals Chords Scales Audio Waveforms Instruments Songs WORDS & LINGUISTICS Word Properties Dictionary Lookup Puzzles Anagrams Languages Document Length Morse Code Soundex SPORTS & GAMES Football Baseball Olympics Stadiums Lotteries Card Games COLORS Color Names & Systems Color Addition Temperatures Wavelengths MONEY & FINANCE Stock Data Indices Mutual Funds Futures Mortgages Present Value Currency Conversion Bonds Derivatives Valuation Wages Sales Tax SOCIOECONOMIC DATA Demographics Countries US States US Counties Cities Economics Agriculture Energy Salaries Unemployment Cost of Living Health Care Housing Social Statistics Crime Military Religion HEALTH & MEDICINE Body Measurements Growth Charts Exercise Diseases Mortality Data Medical Test Data FOOD & NUTRITION Foods Dietary References EDUCATION International Education Universities Public Schools Standardized Tests ORGANIZATIONS Companies Hospitals Foundations International Organizations TRANSPORTATION Airports Airlines Aircraft Flight Data Gasoline Prices Tides TECHNOLOGICAL WORLD Communications Satellites Space Probes Photography Barcodes WEB & COMPUTER SYSTEMS Website Data IP Lookup Notable Computers String Processing Hashing Unicode Lookup (Wolfram|Alpha Pro capabilities such as file upload and personal analytics are not yet available through this app.) | -- | $2.99 | View In iTunes |

116 | Free Graphing Calculator | *** Now over 4 million downloads. Thanks users!*** A powerful, flexible graphing calculator . . . and it's free! Does far more than most of the paid calculators out there . . . let alone the free ones. Features: 1) Scientific Calculator. Simple to grasp and easy to use, but powerful features are available when you need them. Available functions include the following: • the usual arithmetic functions and exponentiation. • square root, cube root, nth root, natural log, log base 10, log of arbitrary base, absolute value, factorial, permutations (nPr), combinations (nCr), modulus, random integer, bell curve, cumulative normal distribution, decimal to fraction. 2) Graphing. Capabilities: • Graph up to four equations at once. • Graphs are labeled. • You can drag the graph or pinch to zoom in or out. • Calculator can find roots and intersections. • Graph in polar coordinates. • Graph parametric equations • Can graph implicit functions, such as x^2+y^2-4=0. Most calculator apps can't do this! 3) A unit converter. With a tap, you can enter the result of your conversion into the calculator. Currently converts different units of the following: acceleration, angle, area, density, distance, energy, force, mass, power, pressure, speed, temperature, time, and volume. Great for doing physics homework! 4) Constants for scientific calculations -- speed of light, strength of gravity at Earth's surface, etc. etc. etc. Tapping on a constant will insert it into your calculation -- i.e, you don't have to key in the value. Again, great for doing physics homework! 5) It can make a table of the values of any function you care to enter. You can choose the starting x value of the table, as well as how much x increases for each successive row. 6) Help screens linked directly to many of the available functions and constants. Tap the disclosure arrow to see the definition. 7) Forgot the quadratic formula? Or the double-angle formulas for sine and cosine? The math/science reference hits the high points of various subjects. Currently includes algebra, differential and integral calculus, geometry, trigonometry, vectors, vector calculus, and classical mechanics. 8) Keep track of significant figures [AKA sig figs] 9) Statistics -- enter data and make a histogram, box and whisker plot, or scatter plot with optional regression line. If you are viewing this in iTunes, you will see five iPhone screenshots and five iPad screenshots. But even ten shots don't come close to showing everything this calculator can do. I'd love to hear your comments or suggestions. You can write me at mathscixyzgraphcalc@gmail.com -- but without the xyz. Thanks! | -- | Free | View In iTunes |
