## 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.

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: R&S (Read and Study) Our text, page 534, (if you are not quick and proficient at these skills, R&S sections 0.5 and 0.6 in our text)

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
