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 ================================================================================== HW1: 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.

There is something tricky about these two problems. I have made a handout here . Look at it if your answer is not matching the textbook answer on these two problems! Due: Start of class, Monday, 4/23 ================================================================================== For any students who wonder, "Why is the area under a curve one of the applications of the definite integral?". What you are really asking, in math terminology, is why is the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus true. This can be a little difficult to explain clearly. It is answered rigorously in a Calculus I course and again in a basic Analysis course. But, I have found a decent, fairly understandable explanation at this link. Give it a reading if you are so curious that you can't sleep, but I won't be asking anyone any questions about this on homework or the final! Here is the same article in pdf form. ================================================================================== HW27: 13.2 #'s 37,39; 13.3 #'s 37,39; 13.4 #'s 1-7 odd Lecture notes and examples over 13-2,13-3,13-4 (4/24/2018) Due: Start of class, Wednesday, 4/25 ================================================================================== Final Exam Material: Website HW assignments: HW22-27 Text Sections: 14.2 (derivatives of functions of two variables - HW22) 14.4 (find the max/min/saddle points for a function of two variables - HW23) 12.1,2,3,4 (indefinite integrals and applications - HW24-25) 13.2,4 (definite integrals and applications - HW25-26-27) You may bring up to 4 study sheets. In addition, bring the sheet for finding max/min/saddle points from HW24. Also have your derivative and integral rules and algebra rules for properties of exponents. If you are studying for the final and get stuck on a problem, take a picture of your work and send it to me in an email! I will post some of these, with my answers on the website (no names mentioned!). ================================================================================== Sample Problem on using the Test Function for critical points of two-variable functions (the solution is here ) ==================================================================================
The final exam for MAT1316.02 (the M/W 11:40 section) is on Wednesday (May 2nd) from 1:00 - 3:00 pm in this room. Bring your calculator (NOT a phone, ipad, android, or other internet capable device) and your study sheets.
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!
