There is enough material and content here to **help someone go from an elementary student **(who knows the basics of arithmetic, fractions, and decimals)** to a student who understands first semester calculus**. Each course on this website has units, sections, selected solutions, and practice tests or unit review assignments.** **

4- I fully understand the skill and I can demonstrate the correct process and get problems right all the time.

3- I understand the skill and I can get problems right most of the time. (More than 80% of the time.)

2- I generally understand the skill, but I can only get the problems right some of the time. (Less than 80%.)

1- I kind of understand the skill, but I can only get problems right if I have help.
