MATHalino Now Offers Online Courses

This is not an announcement or promotional post. This is about my experience in building the platform for online courses.


Creating an online course is monumental specially to small websites like MATHalino. Despite being manned by one person from the ground up, the development of this functionality is actually progressing by degrees. I've been conceiving this feature as far as I can recall, way before online courses become a common thing in the Philippines. What makes me unable to implement it before comes from three factors.

Basic Algebra Review

Please login or register to take this course.

Is this course right for you?
Although we named this course as Basic Algebra Review, this is actually designed for those who already completed their Algebra subject in engineering curriculum, hence, review. Problems presented in later topics are not really for beginners and solutions presented here assumed that you already earned the credits of College Algebra from your university.

Beginners however are also welcome to join, but never consider this course as a substitute to the long standing and thoroughly tested university program. Don't forget that your professor is the one holding the authority of the subject. Whenever contradiction arises between my teaching and that of your professor, do not follow me, listen to your professor. You may consider this course, however, as a supplement material to the already rich Algebra materials handed to you in your school.

The solid pole shown in the figure is loaded with a vertical load P = 25 kN and lateral load H = 0.95 kN. The pole is 3 m high, 300 mm diameter and weighs 22 kN/m3.

The dimensions are:
$$H = 8 ~ \text{m} \qquad S = 4 ~ \text{kN}$$
