## Introduction

We’re so glad that you’re working to expand the wide world of OER College Algebra materials. As you know, algebra is a very rewarding subject to teach, as it can be approached so many ways. This variety means that though many OER materials already exist for College Algebra, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution in place. Even if you find a template course you admire, you’re likely to need to do at least some customization to fit your school, your program, and your students.

## Resources

### Lumen Courses

Lumen offers several template courses that can serve as starting points for your own development. You can mix, match, and adapt anything from the courses below quite easily.

These math courses are supported by Lumen Learning’s Online Homework Manager (OHM), an online OER homework system that provides algorithmically-generated problems and immediate feedback to help students practice and master math concepts.

These texts are easily editable.

### Description

College Algebra– Lumen Learning/ OpenStax in-text video support This editable text is sourced from OpenStax College Algebra by Jay Abramson, et al. Topics covered include a study of a wide range of equations, and algebraic operations used to solve them. The idea of a function, and a toolkit of functions is introduced. Graphs of functions and transformations are also covered. The study of quadratic functions includes treatment of complex solutions, and the algebra of complex numbers. Thorough coverage of systems of equations includes methods for solving systems with two and three variables. Conic sections, sequences and series and topics in probability finish out the text. CC-BY

These texts are not as easy to edit.

### Description

Precalculus – Stitz-Zeager Full OHM course (called College Algebra, can be adapted), online homework, video support This course is based on College Algebra, by Carl Stitz and Jeff Zeager. Linear, Polynomial, Rational, Exponential, and Logarithmic functions are defined and studied through the rule of 4: graphs, tables, equations and words. Additionally, conic sections, matrices, and an introduction to sequences and series are available. CC-BY-NC-SA

Lippman/Rasmussen full OHM course can be adapted for College Algebra but does not include sets of real numbers, systems of equations, conic sections, sequences, or limits.
