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) Some key algebra skills you will need quickly in this course (and throughout the course) are adding and multiplying polynomials, properties of exponents, factoring polynomials, and simplifying rational expressions. 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 and practice some of the problems there: pg 534 of our text Adding and Multiplying Polynomials Factoring Polynomials The very best link for practice on multiplying binomials and factoring binomials is this link (You can just click the button for new sets of 10 problems to practice) Due: Start of class, Thursday, 8/24 ================================================================================== Remember to dress up pretty for class on Thursday for my seating chart pictures! ================================================================================== HW1: 0.5 #'s 15-37 odd, 43,45; 0.6 #'s 1,3; R&S 9.1 Problems and answers from sections 0.5 and 0.6 Textbook sections 0.5 and 0.6 for review Good extra practice page for factoring polynomials Link for practicing multiplying and factoring with binomials Here is a solution to some of the harder problems. Try them first, and if you get stuck, have a look at these! (0.5 probs 17 and 19; 0.6 probs 17,23,37) Due: Start of class, Tuesday, 8/29 ================================================================================== HW2: 0.6 3's 9-41 odd; 9.1 #'s 1-5 odd; R&S 9.1 Do problems a-i on this handout (answers to handout) Problems and answers from section 0.6 Problems and answers for 9.1 Due: Start of class, Thursday, 8/31 ================================================================================== Our first quiz will be Thursday, 8/31 It will be over HW1 (from the website) Text sections: 0.5,0.6 Remember to bring your study sheet (8.5" x 11") and calculator! ================================================================================== HW3: 9.1 #'s 11,15-27 odd; R&S 9.2 & 9.3 Due: Start of class, Tuesday, 9/5 ================================================================================== HW4: 9.2 #'s 25-31 odd; 9.3 #'s 5a,39a&b,41; R&S 9.3 Due: Start of class, Thursday, 9/7 ================================================================================== HW5: 9.3 #'s 15,17,35; R&S 9.4 Due: Start of class, Tuesday, 9/12 ================================================================================== HW5: 9.4 #'s 1-25 odd; R&S 9.5 Due: Start of class, Thursday, 9/14 ================================================================================== HW6: 9.5 #'s 1-7 odd, 11-15 (do not simplify); R&S 9.6 Due: Start of class, Tuesday, 9/19 ================================================================================== HW7: 9.6 #'s 35,5-21 odd; R&S 9.7 Notes from today's lecture on seciton 9.6 Due: Start of class, Thursday, 9/21 ================================================================================== HW8: 9.7 #'s 33,3-31 odd; R&S 9.8 Some examples of problems similar to the 9.7 problems Some old lecture notes with even problem examples Due: Start of class, Tuesday, 9/26 ==================================================================================
The final exam for MAT1316.01 (the T/Th 8:30 section) is on Thursday (12/7) from 7:45 - 9:45am in this room. Bring your calculator (NOT a phone, ipad, android, or other internet capable device) and your study sheets.
