Announcing TURN THE WHEEL’s first online course: Algebra Foundations for Calculus
I’m thrilled to announce our first of many online course offerings, Algebra Foundations for Calculus. Here at TURN THE WHEEL, we are beginning a journey to provide the best courses on the most important topics of the day. After creating online courses for Udacity, Stanford Graduate School of Business, and McKinsey & Company, I am excited to offer the world engaging learning experiences that are uniquely our own.
Algebra is so important because it forms the basis of just about all the math concepts people use in the real world, including statistics. This particular course focuses on the fundamentals necessary to be successful in Calculus.
To design this course, I partnered with my good friend Arun Sharma, Calculus professor at UC Berkeley. Having taught college math since 2010, he intimately understands the areas in which students struggle. As such, he guided the curricula and elaborates on various concepts throughout the course.
In this course, students will:
- Become fluent in the language of math
- Solve equations and inequalities involving exponents, logarithms, trigonometric functions
- Graph polynomials and exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions
- Define and use the derivative–the most important concept in Calculus–to better understand how functions behave
- Use limits to graph functions and find the derivative
- Find sums of finite and infinite series
The course contains 28 instructional videos (3–7 minutes each) and 24 exercise sets(3–6 questions each). Students can access the course via one of the following options:
For a limited time, we are offering the course half-off ($49) to students in exchange for detailed feedback in order to make the course even better. Click here to purchase this course at the discounted rate.
If you are not already signed up with one of these platforms, I recommend this platform for its user-friendliness. Click here to purchase.
This will be my last mathematics offering for a while, the other being my statistics textbook Street-Smart Stats: A Friendly Introduction to Statistical Research Methods.
