Are average college tuition and fees really rising in the United States? Here is a fascinating take on the rising cost of college tuition and how price discrimination may explain what is often seen as an insurmountable cost for higher education.
Defining the word "discriminant" in the context of the quadratic formula, Sal continues to guide viewers through the process of quadratic equations. The true value of this video, as in Sal's entire series, is the emphasis on truly understanding the mathematical process necessary to solve the problem. Sal wants to foster a deeper learning within young mathematicians, rather than just handing them a formula and telling them to use it.
