Course Description

This course provides a working knowledge of college-level algebra and its applications.

Emphasis is placed upon the solution and the application of linear and quadratic equations, word problems, polynomials, and rational and radical equations. Students perform operations on real numbers and polynomials and simplify algebraic, rational, and radical expressions.

Arithmetic and geometric sequences are examined, and linear equations and inequalities are discussed. Students learn to graph linear, quadratic, absolute value, and piecewise-defined functions and solve and graph exponential and logarithmic equations. Other topics include solving applications using linear systems as well as evaluating and finding partial sums of a series. Course Objectives

● Identify and then calculate perimeter, area, surface area, and volume for standard geometric figures

● Perform operations on real numbers and polynomials.

● Simplify algebraic, rational, and radical expressions.

● Solve both linear and quadratic equations and inequalities.

● Solve word problems involving linear and quadratic equations and inequalities.

...Linked Worksheets and Workbooks . Linked Worksheets and Workbooks Worksheets and workbooks have long been the backbone to many organizations and companies. They are used for just about all a business’s record keeping, from tracking sales to the financial accounting. I reviewed a couple of articles and I found one that emphasized the need for proper workbooks and worksheets. This article goes in detail on how a company by the name of Jaguar Mining took its workbooks and consolidated them to fit the business needs. Jaguar Mining was having trouble because even though it was a small company it was trying to manage three separate workbooks, composed of over 100 linked spreadsheets, containing the financial and operational data for the mining and headquarters locations. That was a lot of work for such a minor company. Each sheet represented different functions for each mine and plant, including operating, capital, and cost data, as well as the monthly financial results. Well this was an impossible task at a company that only had ten people at the company headquarters. The company found that Excel just was not going to work for them. What it did next was switch to a company called Adaptive Planning (now called Adaptive Insight). It still has workbooks and worksheets but now the information that is needed is merged to suit the company’s needs. Jaguar Mining still has its workbooks and worksheets but now can input the data in a form......

...Summary of Online Degrees Could Be a Good Fit for Some In the article Online Degrees Could Be a Good Fit for Some Teens Briana Boyington is portraying that there is no correct type of college. There are different options for a different variety of learners and their different circumstances; whether it be a job, financial instability, or a student just needs relief from classroom learning. These options include four year universities, community colleges, and online degree programs. There are positives and negatives for every option. A few negatives for online degree programs is students lose some of the social interactions with other students and faculty that occur when attending school on campus. Employers are sometimes weary of hiring students that only have an online degree, campuses that offer both online and in class learning are looked at more highly. It is made clear in this article that online learning is a robust choice for a student who is self-determined, not likely a successful path for a student who has struggled in the classroom. When graduating high school online degree programs aren’t typically broadcasted, or encouraged. Most teenagers are set on living the college life so to speak. Boyington suggests that even though online learning is not the typical pathway, it could be a great path to success for many students who can’t go away to college as initially planned. A good online school would be one that inspires students to interact and get as close to......

...SUMMARY TEAM A University of Phoenix CJA 484 Dwayne Carr May 4, 2015 SUMMARY What did you find that was really useful, or that challenged your thinking? During this weeks reading and research in class I found it profoundly difficult to completely comprehend the fiscal demands part of correctional institutions as my concentration is on human services not finance. However, keeping fiscal budget demand in mind when implementing policy can be important as the world does revolve around money. Without proper budgeting the correctional institution would not have any programs for inmate’s to get help or education. The most important thing to remember is the safety of the prison staff must come first when implementing policy change. Furthermore the development of technology use like RFID tag to track inmate sin prison can eliminate investigation time and save money in the long run. The only issue seems to be is the initial cost of the devices outweighs the money saving. Inmates however will most likely tell the truth knowing they are being tracked it is almost like having a good working camera sin every area of the prions without the constant monitoring or mess-ups of film. Was there anything that you've already taken and applied in your workplace? Working security requires the use of some of the latest technological advancements. While it is not necessarily in a corrections environment, the use of technology is still paramount to the effectiveness of our tasks....

...Gibb and Dyches workbook summary Charlie Baldwin Liberty University Gibb and Dyches workbook summary Special Education and the Individualized Education Program The Individualized Education Program (IEP) is a legal document used by schools in order to map out a plan of action for those that are in need of special education. An IEP is created for students who have been classified with a disability and are between the ages of 3 and 21. An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is a written statement of the educational program designed to meet a child’s individual educational needs. Every child who receives special education services must have an IEP. An individualized education program has the goal of setting reasonable improvement learning goals for a child for one year including the role the school will assist the student to achieve their specific goals (Gibb & Dyches, 2016). The IEP is developed by a team that meets and discusses the relevant information about the child's strengths and deficiencies. The team meets, in order to analyze the data obtained by gathering data and individual assessments data about the child. The team then develops specific educational interventions educational to address the child’s educational deficiencies that result from his or her disability. This team meets at least once a year but as often as needed to ensure that the child’s educational needs are being met. The IEP has two important roles. The first is the special education plan...
