## Advice because I love you like you are my own: You

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## Algebra Practice Material: A good link for practice on multiplying polynomials and factoring: Practice problems on factoring or multiplying polynomials Good tutorial with practice problems: A good review, examples, and test problems on factoring Good practice problems: 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

Note: if you have trouble with viewing the video in the above link, try downloading it to your computer (right-click and save it to your computer) and then watch it with your video viewing software. If this doesn't work, I will have another format up on this website in a little bit. The flash format is the most compressed way to save a long video like this. If you can't get the above video to work, try downloading the one below. It is the same lecture, but a much larger file. This is the video lecture for 12.1 (in mpg format). Due: Start of class on Tuesday, 5/28 (remembeer that Monday is a holiday!) --------------------------------------------- Our Final Exam (our fourth test) is on Friday, Apr 29, from 7:45 to 9:45 in this room. You may bring up to 6 pages of study notes for this exam. 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!Remember to bring your study sheet and calculator!
