### Text

*Intermediate Algebra*by Lumen Learning is a derivative work based on Developmental Math: An Open Program, provided by Monterey Institute of Technology and Education. The text for this course is a "digital textbook" of a current, curated collection of OER resources with embedded video examples created by James Sousa (mathispower4u.com). The course covers one semester of Intermediate algebra for college students in developmental math. The course is also fully integrated in our online homework platform, Lumen OHM. The course is laid out over 15 modules including a review.
