  • 1. Course Guidelines. 2. Course Procedures. 3. Why do we study Math? 4. Who Am I?
  • Factoring Review.
  • Opener. 1. What is the first step in any factoring problem? 2. What is the first step to factor -x2 + 8x - 15? 3. On a test, Luis Gonzalez wrote the following, but the teacher considered it to be incomplete. Explain why. 15x2 - 21x - 18 = (5x + 3)(3x - 6).
  • Factoring Strategy. Step 1. Always check for the _________________ first. Step 2. Is the expression a -termed expression? If yes, then try one of these three forms: 1. ________________________: 2. ________________________: 3. ________________________: Step 3. If it is a -termed expression (or trinomial), it may fall into one of these groups: 1. The coefficient of is 1. Example: ________________. Find two numbers whose sum is ______ and whose product is ______. They are ______ and ______: 2. The coefficient of is not 1. Example: ________________. a. Find the product of first and last coefficients: ___________ = _____. b. Look for two numbers whose product is ______ and whose sum is _____: _____ and ______. c. Write the expression as four terms: d. Proceed to use Step 4 as follows: Step 4. If it is a -termed expression, try factoring by grouping. Example:
  • Exercises. Factor each expression completely.
  • Homework #1. Baldor, Algebra. Exercise106, Problems 9, 18, 27, 36, 47, 54, 73, 83, 91, 98, 109 and 128, p. 171
  • A person is standing at the top of a building, and throws a ball upwards from a height of 60 ft, with an initial velocity of 30 ft per second. How long will it take for the ball to reach a height of 25 ft from the floor? Use the formula
  • Quadratic Formula. If ax2 + bx + c = 0 and a ≠ 1, then
  • Exercises. Solve the equations. Use the quadratic formula.
  • Homework #2. Baldor, Algebra. Exercise 266, Odd numbered problems, p. 450.
  • Opener. 1. Consider equations and Do their solutions have to be the same? Explain your answer. 2. Consider and Are the solutions the same for both equations? Explain. 3. What is a Reference Angle? The Reference angle for θ is the acute angle θR that the terminal side of θ makes with the x-axis.
  • Trigonometry Review. Find the reference angle θR for θ, and sketch θ and θR in standard position. a) θ = 315o b) θ = -240o y y x x
  • c) θ = 5π/6 y x Multiply degrees by to get radians. Multiply radians by to get degrees.
  • Find the exact values of sin θ, cos θ and tan θ if (a) θ = 5π/6 (b) θ = 315o
  • Verifying Trigonometric Identities.
  • The fundamental identities. 1. The Reciprocal Identities. 2. The Tangent and Cotangent Identities. 3. The Pythagorean Identities.
  • Examples. Show that the following equation is an identity by transforming the left-hand side into the right-hand side:
  • Exercises.
