This is a blog about all topics in basic math in all levels up to first year or second year in college. In particular, I plan to dicuss various problems that are beneficial to students taking math courses at the community college level and high school level. Some of the topics I discuss may be conveniently fit into courses such as basic math (arithmetic, fractions, percentages, etc), pre-algebra, elementary algebra, intermediate algebra, college algebra, precalculus, and calculus. However, my goal is to talk about math problems that are motivated by real world or practical concerns. I currently teach statistics at Golden West College in Huntington Beach, California.
