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: Two key algebra skills you will need quickly in this course (and throughout the course) are adding and multiplying polynomials and factoring polynomials. I will review these skills Wednesday in class. If you think you are weak or rusty on these two skills, read and study the following links: Adding and Multiplying Polynomials Factoring Polynomials Due: Start of class, Thursday, 1/14 --------------------------------------------------------------- Remember to dress up pretty for class on Thursday for my seating chart pictures! --------------------------------------------------------------- HW1: Work the following problems from this worksheet Chapter P: 5a-e,7a-b,8a-f,9a-b,10a-c,11a-b Chapter 1: 1a-d,5a Lecture notes from today (1/13/2016) Due: Start of class, Tuesday, 1/20 --------------------------------------------------------------- Good link for extra practice on multiplying and factoring polynomials is here. --------------------------------------------------------------- HW2: Finish the algebra review handout from last time.

Due: Start of class, Thursday, 1/21 --------------------------------------------------------------- HW3: Evaluating Limits with the Graph and Calculator Do problems 1,6,7,8,9a-d on pages 78-79 from our text. Do problems a-f on this page. ( Solutions are here ) Do problems 4, 5, and 6 on this page Do problems 1 and 2 on this page I am going to summarize everything you need to know in a business calc course on evaluating limits analytically in our lecture on Monday. You would probably be better off not reading and studying anything. If you just feel that you must have an idea of the theory behind what I am going to show you look at the two links below. But we are going to take a very practical approach that includes most of the theory in these two links and you really don't need all the theory behind it. Link 1 (just skip the parts that seem to make no sense). Link 2 (just skip the parts that seem to make no sense). Due: Start of class, Tuesday, 1/26 -------------------------------------------- HW4: Introduction to the Derivative by the definition Do the problems on this worksheet ( Solutions are here ) R&S pgs 80-96 in our text (feel free to skim) Due: Start of class, Thursday, 1/21 --------------------------------------------------------------- Our first quiz over HW1-HW4 will be Thursday, 1/28 Remember to bring your study sheet and calculator! --------------------------------------------------------------- HW5: Finding the Derivative by the Definition Do all the problems on this worksheet.
