## 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)

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
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)
