Math 151 - College Algebra for Calculus Lecture Notes


Hello Class - There will be no class meeting at the Eagle River Campus on Tuesday, July 18, 2017. Instead, you are responsible for learning/understanding the material from sections one through four of Chapter 8. In the Chapter 8 section on this web page, you will find seven video lectures in MP4 format that you must review. Those videos constitute the lecture content for Tuesday. I will not lecture on this material in class, but I will answer questions from this content. The techniques needed to solve many of the questions on Exam #3 are presented in this video sequence. If your personal technology stack does not support the viewing of MP4 videos, then please go to campus and view these videos on a U.A.A. computer. Please inform me if you are not able to view these videos due to technology issues. Monitor this announcement for a possiblity of not having an in-class lecture on Thursday, July 20 as well.
