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 always use the sections recommended in the text for review. Here are some websites with practice problems. You might try these as well. Keep reviewing until you can multiply, factor and simplify the polynomials given in the Chapter Warm-up and in the first assignment from section 9.1.

Algebra Practice Material:

Revised review Sheet for the Final Exam Wednesday, 4/23 notes and examples --------------------------------------------- My Final Exam Schedule (Spring 2014) Some answers to questions students have asked me lately: 1) What if my system of equations from setting my first-order partials equal to zero has one (or both) of the equations a quadratic equation (like problem 15 on 14.4)? Example: zx = x2 - x - y - 6 and zy = 2x - y - 2. How do I solve this? Answer: Solve one of the equations for either x or y. Substitue this solution into the other equation. Hint see Example 3 on page 898. Also see this link or this link. Note: On all emails for this course, start the subject line out with MAT1316, followed by whatever else is appropriate. Emails without this subject line formatting may not be accepted! The final exam is from 3:15 - 5:15 pm on Saturday, April 26th in this room. Bring your calculator (NOT a phone, ipad, android, or other internet capable device) and your study sheets.
