College Algebra, also known as Algebra III or Advanced Algebra, primarily extends concepts previously studied in Algebra II.
Topics in Algebra II primarily extend concepts learned in Algebra I and also include functions, complex numbers, exponential and logarithmic functions, use of the graphing calculator, matrices, conics, sequences and series. Algebra II follows either Algebra I or Geometry in the sequence of math courses and is often used as a developmental course at the college level under the name Intermediate Algebra.
Core topics include solving linear equations and inequalities, graphing equations and inequalities with some use of the graphing calculator, exponents, polynomials, factoring, rational expressions and equations, systems of linear equations and inequalities, radical expressions and equations, and solving quadratic equations. Algebra I follows Prealgebra in the sequence of math courses and is often used as a developmental course at the college level under the name Elementary Algebra.
Sir Thomas Beecham was acknowledged as the finest interpreter of Delius' music during the last century. The composer's friend and biographer, his performances remain a benchmark against which all must be judged. This invaluable anthology contains some of the finest he taped for EMI in the 1940's and 50's. The first two discs contain all those works he recorded in stereo. They comprise a selection of shorter works, the complete Florida Suite and a wonderful 'Songs of Sunset' - settings of 'fin du siecle' poems by Ernest Dowson - splendidly sung by John Cameron and Maureen Forrester.
