We keep seeing the need to translate problems into mathematical terms, or into the language of mathematics, in order to solve those problems.
Libraries and librarians can help us translate mathematical, scientific, and social problems into terms that can facilitate problem-solving, if we fund our libraries properly. How would you solve part of the problem of public library funding?
Today’s reading relates to figuring out for yourself what are useful online materials to help you learn mathematics on your own:
- This course is also intended to provide the student with a strong foundation for intermediate algebra and beyond. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to: simplify and solve linear equations and expressions including problems with absolute values and applications; solve linear inequalities; find equations of lines; and solve application problems; add, subtract, multiply, and divide various types of polynomials; factor polynomials, and simplify square roots; evaluate, simplify, multiply, divide, add, and subtract rational expressions, and solve basic applications of rational expressions. This free course may be completed online at any time. It has been developed through a partnership with the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges; the Saylor Foundation has modified some WSBCTC materials. (Mathematics 001)

1.) Search for two different sources to learn about your local library system’s funding,
2.) Please tell us where your information comes from, and how you know that the sources you found are reliable,
3.) Write a book, story, blog post or tweet that uses your findings, and then, please tell us about it! If you write a book, once it is published please consider donating a copy to your local public library.
