## You

Algebra Practice Material: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.MUST## Practice Problems on factoring and multiplying polynomials A good review, examples, and test problems on factoring 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 Good Problems for practice from our text: On Multiplying, Adding and Subtracting Polynomials: Section 0.5, problems 13-65 odd; Chapter 0 Review, pg 52, problems 45-61 On Factoring and Simplifying Polynomials: Section 0.6, problems 1-57 odd; Section 0.7 1-21 odd; Chapter 0 Review, pg 52, problems 63-73,77 On Properties of Exponents: Section 0.3, problems 1-55 odd; Section 0.4 11-31 odd; Chapter 0 Review, pg 52, problems 21-31 ---------------------------------------------------------------- Good links to a site that explains the concepts and works examples: On Integer Exponents and Properties On Rational Exponents and Properties On Adding, Subtracting and Multiplying Polynomials On Factoring Polynomials On Simplifying Rational Expressions --------------------------------------------------------------- HW0: R&S (Read and Study) 9.1.

Example: zRemember to bring your study sheet and calculator!_{x}= x^{2}- x - y - 6 and z_{y}= 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.
