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:

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 --------------------------------------------------------------- HW1: Factoring Practice Handout; 9.1 #'s 1-9,15-27,33,35 odd; 9.2 #'s 1-17 odd; R&S 9.3 Some algebra practice examples Old 9.1 lecture notes and examples Due: Tuesday, 5/13 --------------------------------------------- HW2: 9.3 #'s 7,15,17; R&S 9.4 & 9.5 Old 9.2 lecture notes and examples Due: Wednesday, 5/14 --------------------------------------------- HW3: 9.4 #'s 1-29; 9.5 #'s 1-7,11-19; 9.6 #'s 5-15; R&S 9.7 & 9.8 Old 9.4 lecture notes and examples Old 9.5 lecture notes and examples Old 9.6 lecture notes and examples Good site with extra explanations and examples of derivative shortcut rules. Good site with extra practice problems of derivative shortcut rules. Good site with extra practice problems of of the product and quotient rules. Good site with extra explanations and examples of the chain rule (section 9.6), but only examples 1,2,3,17 will make sense. The rest of this site involves functions we haven't dealt with yet in Business Calc. Due Thursday, 5/15 --------------------------------------------- HW4: 9.6 17-21,27,29; 9.7 1-37; R&S 9.8 & 10.1 Old 9.7 lecture notes and examples Due Friday, 5/16 --------------------------------------------- Some old quiz keys that have good example problems like you will have on Monday's test: Problems with limits and continuity Problems with derivatives More problems with derivatives --------------------------------------------- Monday's Test: Any problems that have been assigned as homework are potential test questions. You should know how to work all homework problems. In addition, remember that I have essentially guaranteed that several problems will be on the exam. These include: 1) the limits and continuity of a function from the graph problems (like homework problems from 9.1 and 9.2 and diagnostic quiz 1). 2) Finding the derivative of a function by the definition of the derivative (like homework problems from 9.3 and diagnostic quiz 2). 3) Finding the equation of a tangent line to a function (like homework problems from 9.3 and diagnostic quiz 2). 4) Finding derivatives using the shortcut rules (like homework problems from 9.4, 9.5, 9.6, 9.7 and diagnostic quiz 3). Remember to bring your calculator and up to 3 study sheets for Monday's test! --------------------------------------------- HW5: 9.8 #'s 1-27; Sign-graph handout Old 9.8 lecture notes and examples Answers to the sign-graph handout Due Tuesday, 5/20 --------------------------------------------- HW6: 10.1 15,17,19,31,33,35; 10.2 13-21 odd; 10.3 25 Old 10.1a lecture notes and examples Old 10.1b lecture notes and examples Old 10.1c lecture notes and examples We will have a diagnostic quiz over this homework tomorrow! Due Wednesday, 5/21 --------------------------------------------- HW7: 10.3 7-17,27,29,33,35,41 odd; Old 10.3a lecture notes and examples Old 10.3b lecture notes and examples Old 10.3c lecture notes and examples Old 10.3d lecture notes and examples We will have a diagnostic quiz over this homework tomorrow!

Someone asked me to put some things to help on the website. Here they are: Chapter 14, Section 2, Problem 37 Some examples of evaluating functions of two variables. Test 3 Material: 1) From 11.4 I will include a related rate problem (similar to problem 17 on 11.4) 2) Any of the homework we did from 14.1, 14.2, 14.3, and 14.4. 3) Any of the homework problems from 12.1, 12.2, 13.2, 13.4 4) A problem similar to the one given above.
