Homework Assignments

Advice because I love you like you are my own: You MUST be able to multiply and factor polynomials to succeed in this class! You must also be proficient with properties of exponents. 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 use the links below for practice.

Additional Algebra Practice Material: 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 --------------------------------------------------------------- HW0: Two key algebra skills you will need quickly in this course (and throughout the course) are adding and multiplying polynomials and factoring polynomials. I will review these skills Thursday in class. If you think you are weak or rusty on these two skills, read and study the following links: Adding and Multiplying Polynomials Factoring Polynomials Due: Start of class, Thursday, 8/27 --------------------------------------------------------------- Remember to dress up pretty for class on Thursday for my seating chart pictures! Good link for extra practice on multiplying and factoring polynomials is here. HW1: On the author's webpage (here), try all these problems and make sure you can do them on a blank sheet of paper: Example 1 a,b Example 2 a-e Example 3 a-d On the practice-problems page (here), try all these problems and make sure you can do them on a blank sheet of paper: Problems 1-9 (notice that the solutions are there also). On the additional-problems page (here), do problems 1-5,9,11,14-23. (answers to these problems here. On the author's webpage (here), try all these problems and make sure you can do them on a blank sheet of paper: Example 1 a,b,c,d Example 2 a,b,c On the practice-problems page (here), try the problems indicated and make sure you can do them on a blank sheet of paper: Problems 1-6 (notice that the solutions are there also). On the additional-problems page (here), do problems 1-13. R&S the author's section on factoring polynomials (here). If you feel like you need additional practice on these key skills, use this link: Good practice problems for multiplying binomials and factoring R&S this link (we will cover this material on Tuesday): Integer Exponents Due: Start of class, Tuesday, 9/1 --------------------------------------------------------------- HW2: Exponents: Properties Examples Practice Problems 5-9 Simplifying Rational Expressions: Full Explanation Practice Problems Lines: Full Explanation Practice Problems 1-11 Additional Practice Problems 1-24 You should be able to do any of the problems above.

Due: Start of class, Thursday, 9/3 --------------------------------------------------------------- HW3: Evaluating Limits with the Graph and Calculator Do problems a-f on this page. Do problems 4, 5, and 6 on this page Do problems 1 and 2 on this page I am going to summarize everything you need to know in a business calc course on evaluating limits analytically in our lecture on Tuesday. You would probably be better off not reading and studying anything. If you just feel that you must have an idea of the theory behind what I am going to show you look at the two links below. But we are going to take a very practical approach that includes most of the theory in these two links and you really don't need all the theory behind it. Link 1 (just skip the parts that seem to make no sense).
