Abstract:

This is an instructional series of 26 half-hour programs for high school, college, and adult learners, or for teachers seeking to review the subject matter. Host Sol Garfunkel explains concepts that may baffle many students, while graphic illustrations and on-location examples demonstrate how algebra is used for solving real-world problems. Algebra is important in today's world, used in such diverse fields as agriculture, sports, genetics, social science, and medicine. This series helps students connect algebra's mathematical themes and applications to daily life.
