I was mapping out my summer schedule to make sure I could take all the classes I wanted. It looks like I may only be able to fit in 4 of my core subjects unless I'm allowed to take at least one of them during Maymester.
One of my classes is College Algebra. It's been nearly 6 years since I had an Algebra class, so to see how much I remember, I printed up the sample exam for the first section from the math department page.
On the bright side... I know what numbers look like.
The downside is I had no idea how to solve the first one and the questions seemed to increase in difficulty as you went along. I lost my scientific calculator some time ago, so it looks like I'm going to have to dig that baby out for college. I managed to get by with my computer calculator and with the help of a very handy site:
The West Texas A&M University Virtual Math Lab
This one helped the most, because they have videos that show you the method to solve the problem. I managed to fight my way through the worksheet and then checked my answers. I didn't get them all right, but I was able to figure out how they came to their answer, and where I went wrong. I just hope that I'll be okay when the real thing comes up.
