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: 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.
