PowerPoints for Math 096 Intermediate Algebra

These are provided by the MSJC MVC Learning Center to support tutoring.

They are structured like the chapters in the current Math 096 textbook:

(Intermediate Algebra Concepts & Applications 8th Edition by Bittinger/Ellenbogen).

They have been donated “as is” by Associate Instructor David Vandewater,

and include additional or alternate material not contained in the text.

Some sections do not have links because those Powerpoints do not exist yet.

Please report any errors or problems to the LRC with the chapter section and chart number.

Is this your first time here?  You may be interested in an Overview of Powerpoint Use before you start.

They are not a substitute for classroom instruction,

but they may be of some help if a student misses a class day or needs to review it.

They work best when viewed with a tutor who can explain the points being illustrated.

They do not contain any class-specific information such as homework assignments or other requirements.

They are absolutely no substitute for a student purchasing a textbook,
