About This Course
Math 103 course topics are broken down into modular, 10 minute video lessons that you can watch as many times as you need to in order to master a particular concept. Instructors Luke Winspur and Dr. Erin Lennon are experts in teaching all levels of math and use real-world examples to bring concepts like functions and the Pythagorean theorem to life.
Use our interactive quizzes to test your knowledge and see how much you've learned and where you might need to do some review. These video lessons are yours to use however you want.
Here's what students and instructors have said about our math video lessons:
I have used the math video lessons with my students and the results have been great, they ranked very well. I personally used some of the calculus lessons with high school teachers and all of them plan to use it for their precalculus and calculus classes in the school curriculum. - Dr. Alfred Vaquiax-Alvarado, instructor
The visual aids make is interesting, and it also helps using the real life comparisons. - Lynda, independent online learner
This made sense from something I couldn't understand for years! - college student
