This LibGuide identifies free resources that you can use for background material and support for your Basic Math course. The resources are divided into two major categories: videos and text material.

Free resources abound on the internet and in libraries. The most difficult thing is to find what it is you truly need. The videos selected were those deemed to best cover the material in the curriculum. While the same is true for the text material, written resources tend to be lengthier and some cover more material than our curriculum. Many sources in the text material have an interactive aspect with problems for you to try.

At the end of each page there is a list of links that will take you to additional topics at the sources we have used.

If you are back in school after being away for a while, or, have just never felt comfortable with numbers, you are in the right place.

In this guide, you will be presented with short tutorials that explain various math concepts. These short tutorials have been chosen by ACC Math faculty who understand what you need to be successful! So, stick around! Review materials assigned by your faculty a little everyday, and soon, you will see your skills improve!

Apps (little software applications) allow you to customize your tablet to do the things you like to do. Some of the apps listed are free, while others are fee-based. Additionally, some apps are initially free, and then require in-app purchases if more features and functionality are desired. Listed, you will find some app recommendations we have come up with through trial, error, and our own experiences.

ACC Library Services does not endorse any fee-based apps nor it is liable for reimbursement of any apps paid for by patrons. Please refer to the Tablet Circulation Policy for further details.
