College Algebra is an introductory text for a college algebra survey course. The material is presented at a level intended to prepare students for Calculus while also giving them relevant mathematical skills that can be used in other classes. The authors describe their approach as "Functions First," believing introducing functions first will help students understand new concepts more completely. Each section includes homework exercises, and the answers to most computational questions are included in the text (discussion questions are open-ended).
This resource includes PowerPoint, workbook pages, and supplemental videos associated to OpenStax College Algebra, Section 5.1 Quadratic Functions. All materials are ADA accessible. Funded by THECB OER Development and Implementation Grant (2021)
