This course is designed for students preparing to pursue a Manufacturing course of study at the college level. It provides a strong foundation in math, science, and technology, covering algebra, geometry and industrial workplace math. It provides a basic understanding of physics and scientific principles specific to the manufacturing industry incorporating basic technology and computer skills

Algebra 1 is part of the Essential Pre-College Math (EPM) series of 16 self-paced, online modules that cover topics ranging from basic number properties to factoring and graphing polynomials. The modules are designed to help students review or master content usually covered in Pre-Algebra and Algebra I courses taught in high school, while at the same time presenting the material with authentic examples illustrating how mathematics is used in the various fields of study related to work for architectural engineering technicians or construction.

A solid understanding of this level of mathematics is crucial, and a prerequisite, for enrolling and succeeding in college level mathematics courses required in the Architectural and Engineering Technology (AES) degree and certificate programs as well as in most other fields of study.

The self-paced, modular structure of the modules allows students to work on their areas of weakness without requiring them to spend time on material they have already mastered.

Additionally, it enables students to improve their mastery of pre-college foundational math without the tuition cost normally associated with remedial mathematics courses. All of the courses underwent a thorough review by industry subject matter experts. A copy of their review is available here: SME Reviews.

Audience:  Instructional designers, Industry training and students
