Course description

Algebra is often considered the language of mathematics for good reason. In this class we continue the exploration that began in the http//www.extension.harvard.eduHarvard Extension School course MATH E-303 of this rich fascinating subject taking on topics involving the form and function of polynomials such as analyzing polynomials using difference tables (connecting with ideas leading to calculus) and touching on the concept of infinite polynomials. We also investigate sequences and seriesóarithmetic geometric as well as others; explore complex numbers and their geometry; and thoroughly develop trigonometric functions and identities. The class is designed for teachers who will be teaching Algebra 2 classes or for anyone who wants to learn more about this interesting subject.
