## Advice because I love you like you are my own: You

be able to multiply polynomials and factor polynomials to succeed in this class! If any of the problems on Factoring, or Simplifying give you trouble, then you need to spend some time right away brushing up your basic algebra skills. You can always use the sections recommended in the text for review. Here are some websites with practice problems. You might try these as well. Keep reviewing until you can multiply, factor and simplify the polynomials given in the Chapter Warm-up and in the first assignment from section 9.1.MUST## A good review, examples, and test problems on factoring Adding and Subtracting Polynomials Multiplying Binomials with the FOIL method Multiplying Other Polynomials Factoring a difference of two squares Factoring Polynomials One Factoring Polynomials Two Factoring Polynomials Three Factoring Polynomials Four Factoring Polynomials by Grouping HW1: Chapter Warm-up, pg 585; Due: Start of class on Thur, 8/30 --------------------------------------------- HW2: Section 9.1 #'s 11-25,31-41 odd; R&S 9.2 (R&S means Read and Study) Due: Start of class on Tues, 9/4 A good review, examples, and test problems on simple limits --------------------------------------------- HW3: Section 9.1 #'s 1-9,27,29; R&S 9.2 Due: Start of class on Thur, 8/30 A good link for practice on multiplying polynomials and factoring: Practice problems on factoring or multiplying polynomials
