One of the problems we encounter while teaching
college algebra is that many students do not have the mathematical
skills which are essential for success. This is true even though
the prerequisite course (Intermediate Algebra) has been passed.
To address this problem, the Mathematics Department of the University
of Arizona decided to do the following. Write a computer program
which a student can use before starting college algebra. This
program would quiz the student on all sections of algebra which
are essential to college algebra. The quizzes cover linear equations,
exponents, functions, and factoring. The whole purpose of the
program would be to hone the student's skills in those parts of
algebra which are essential for success in college algebra.
