## ================================================================ HW0: R&S (Read and Study) this link and this link. Due: Start of class, Wednesday, 8/23 ================================================================ Remember to dress up pretty for class on Wednesday for my seating chart pictures! ================================================================ Note: On all emails for this course, start the subject line out with MAT1311, followed by whatever else is appropriate. Emails without this subject line formatting may not be accepted! =============================================================== HW1: Do the problems on the following handouts: Problems on degree, terms, factors, and numeric coefficients of a polynomial (answers to the above problems) Problems on adding and subtracting polynomials (only do problems 1-21 odd) Note: The answers for problems 12 and 17 in the original link above were wrong! The link now contains the corrected document with correct answers. Due: Start of class, Monday, 8/28 ================================================================ HW2: Do the following problems: On multiplying polynomials: from the text: work examples 2a-e and 3a-d from this link on multiplying polynomials from the practice problems: work problems 4-10 from this link On factoring polynomials: from the text: work examples 1a-d and 3a-d from this link on factoring polynomials from the practice problems: work problems 1-4 from this link Your goal in doing the homework is to read deep enough and practice problems hard enough so that you can do problems like these on a blank sheet of paper without any notes. This is what you will be asked to do on the quiz! Due: Start of class, Wednesday, 8/30 ================================================================

Our first quiz over HW1 will be Wednesday, 8/30=============================================================== HW3: Do the following problems: On factoring polynomials (part 2): from the text: work examples 2a-c, 3e-g, 4a-c, and 5a-c from this link on factoring polynomials from the practice problems: work problems 5-18 from this link R&S (Read and Study) this link on integer exponents Great link for practice multiplying binomials and factoring trinomials Due: Start of class, Wednesday, 9/6 ================================================================ HW4: Do the following problems: On integer exponents: from the text: work example 1a-f from this link on Integer Exponents from the practice problems: work problems 1-9 from this link on Integer Exponents R&S (Read and Study) this link on rational exponents Due: Start of class, Monday, 9/11 ================================================================ HW5: Do the following problems: On rational exponents: from the text: work examples 1a-f,2a-c,3a-b from this link on rational exponents from the practice problems: work problems 1-10 from this link R&S (Read and Study) this link on radicals Due: Start of class, Wednesday, 9/13 ================================================================Remember to bring your study sheet and calculator!Our second quiz will be Wednesday, 9/13The quiz will cover HW3-HW4 on the following topics:1) Factoring polynomials (part2)2) Integer Exponents=============================================================== HW6: Do the following problems: On radicals: from the text: work examples 1a-c,2a-e,3a-f,4a-c,5a-c from this link on radicals from the practice problems: work problems 1-18 from this link R&S (Read and Study) this link on rational expressions Due: Start of class, Monday, 9/18 ================================================================ HW7: Do the following problems: On rational expressions: from the text: work examples 1a-c,2a-c,3a-e from this link on rational expressions do these problems (solutions to the problems in the link above) R&S (Read and Study) this link on complex numbers Due: Start of class, Wednesday, 9/20 ================================================================ HW8: Do the following problems: On complex numbers: from the text: work examples 1a-c,2a-d,3a-d,4 from this link on complex numbers do all the problems on this link Lecture notes on complex numbers from today R&S (Read and Study) this link on linear equations Due: Start of class, Monday, 9/25 ================================================================ ================================================================Remember to bring your study sheet and calculator!The final exam for MAT1311.02 (the M/W 10:40 - 11:55 section) is onWednesday (Dec. 6th) from 3:15 - 5:15 pm in this room.Bring your calculator (NOT a phone, ipad, android, or other internet capable device)================================================================and your study sheets.
