People sometimes think that math is just about number crunching. However, that’s not always the case. Patterns and letters (called variables) are used in math to help represent real-life situations. In addition to learning about variables, parts of this course will help you see a side of math you might not have even realized is out there. This course includes six units. Topics covered include multiplication and division of fractions, ratio reasoning, unit rates, expressions, equations, area, surface area, volume, and statistics. As you work through the six units, you will notice that some of the material builds on your prior knowledge, while some of the concepts will be new ideas that will serve as building blocks for your future math career. In unit 1, you will build on your current understanding of fractions, multiplication, and division to understand why the procedures for multiplying and dividing fractions make sense. The number system in its basic sense is probably already familiar to you. During…

Algebra is incorporated into a lot of daily activities even when you don’t realize you are using it. Whether you are planning a vacation, deciding on a job, shopping, building something, planning a party, monitoring your heartbeat, or dieting, algebra can help you get a job done or make successful decisions. This course includes 10 units that will help you in this endeavor. This course is a continuation of the development of concepts and problem-solving methods learned in pre-algebra courses. Topics in this course include expressions, functions, equations and inequalities, exponentials, quadratics, piecewise and absolute value functions, systems, and statistics. The purpose of this course is to build a strong algebra background that is needed to be successful in the upper level mathematics courses, as well as to gain the logic needed to solve real-world applications. In Unit 1, you will build on your skills with activities that will help with the modeling and graphing in all future units. You will also…

Welcome to the amazing world of statistics! You might be thinking that the topic is just about a bunch of charts, graphs, and odd-looking formulas, but in fact, it is a fascinating and challenging field of study. In this course, we will indeed study those charts and graphs, and yes, that array of complex formulas. But beyond those tools, we will find an entire new way of thinking, a new way of approaching and understanding the world around us. We will learn why taking aspirin helps lower the risk and severity of a heart attack; how researchers have determined that the more friends you have on a social networking site, the more likely you are to have fewer friends in real life; and how political pollsters almost always know the outcome of an election even before the polls open. The course is divided into 10 units of study. The first two units are devoted to simple statistical calculations and graphical representations of data. Most of this material will be familiar to you from previous math or science course…

ALISON Free Course Type: course Free to Access Mime Type - Scorm 1.2

Probability and Statistics is one of two strands introduced in the first phase of the new Project Maths Course in the Irish curriculum. This topic covers up to half of the new Paper 2 in the Leaving Certificate Paper. <br />Statistics are used in real life to make sense of the information around us and how it affects us. Statistics looks at the data handling cycle and analysis of the data collected. This involves posing a question, collecting data on that question, presenting that data, analysing the data (using measures of spread and centre) and interpreting the results. In answering questions, it is essential that you can contextualise and justify your findings. <br />Probability is concerned with the likelihood of an event(s) happening. The information can be used to make informed decisions. The use of probability is commonly utilised in the world of finance, insurance and sport among others. Probability can also be used to infer the fairness of an event or series of events. It can be evaluated using a diagram or a rule-based approach. A combination of Probability and Statistics can be used to prove/disprove a given conjecture or statement (Hypothesis Testing (HL only)). <br />This Strand attempts to merge the mathematical aspects of Probability and Statistics with its real-life application. It is an interesting topic that is very accessible to all students.<br />

edX Free Closed [?] English Computer Science EdX Math UTAustinX

Foundations to Frontiers (LAFF) is packed full of challenging, rewarding material that is essential for mathematicians, engineers, scientists, and anyone working with large datasets. Students appreciate our unique approach to teaching linear algebra because:

  • It’s visual.
  • It connects hand calculations, mathematical abstractions, and computer programming.
  • It illustrates the development of mathematical theory.
  • It’s applicable.

In this course, you will learn all the standard topics that are taught in typical undergraduate linear algebra courses all over the world, but using our unique method, you'll also get more! LAFF was developed following the syllabus of an introductory linear algebra course at The University of Texas at Austin taught by Professor Robert van de Geijn, an expert on high performance linear algebra libraries. Through short videos, exercises, visualizations, and programming assignments, you will study Vector and Matrix Operations, Linear Transformations, Solving Systems of Equations, Vector Spaces, Linear Least-Squares, and Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors. In addition, you will get a glimpse of cutting edge research on the development of linear algebra libraries, which are used throughout computational science.

MATLAB licenses will be made available to the participants free of charge for the duration of the course.

This summer version of the course will be released at an accelerated pace. Each of the three releases will consist of four ”Weeks” plus an exam . There will be suggested due dates, but only the end of the course is a true deadline.

We invite you to LAFF with us!

 

FAQs

What is the estimated effort for the course? 

About 8 hrs/week.

How much does it cost to take the course?

You can choose! Auditing the course is free.  If you want to challenge yourself by earning a Verified Certificate of Achievement, the contributions start at $50.

Will the text for the videos be available?

Yes. All of our videos will have transcripts synced to the videos.

Are notes available for download?

PDF versions of our notes will be available for free download from the edX platform during the course.  Compiled notes are currently available at www.ulaff.net.

Do I need to watch the videos live?

No. You watch the videos at your leisure.

Can I contact the Instructor or Teaching Assistants?

Yes, but not directly. The discussion forums are the appropriate venue for questions about the course. The instructors will monitor the discussion forums and try to respond to the most important questions; in many cases response from other students and peers will be adequate and faster.

Is this course related to a campus course of The University of Texas at Austin?

Yes. This course corresponds to the Division of Statistics and Scientific Computing titled “SDS329C: Practical Linear Algebra”, one option for satisfying the linear algebra requirement for the undergraduate degree in computer science.

Is there a certificate available for completion of this course?

Online learners who successfully complete LAFF can obtain an edX certificate. This certificate indicates that you have successfully completed the course, but does not include a grade.

Must I work every problem correctly to receive the certificate?

No, you are neither required nor expected to complete every problem.

What textbook do I need for the course?

There is no textbook. PDF versions of our notes will be available for free download from the edX platform during the course. Compiled notes are currently available at www.ulaff.net.

What are the principles by which assignment due dates are established?

There is a window of 19 days between the material release and the due date for the homework of that week. While we encourage you to complete a week’s work before the launch of the next week, we realize that life sometimes gets in the way so we have established a flexible cushion. Please don’t procrastinate. The course closes 25 May 2015. This is to give you nineteen days from the release of the final to complete the course.

Are there any special system requirements?

You may need at least 768MB of RAM memory and 2-4GB of free hard drive space. You should be able to successfully access the course using Chrome and Firefox.
