Precalculus- Information For Test 1

There will be a test on Tuesday, March 10, 2009 in class. This test will include material covered in class right until the beginning of the new unit (tangents and limits are excluded).

  • Functions- Introduction
  • Combining Functions
  • Multiplication of Functions
  • Polynomial Functions- Shapes and Properties
  • The Factor Theorem
  • The Remainder Theorem
  • The Factor Property
  • The Rational Root Theorem
  • Synthetic Substitution
  • Specialized Factoring Techniques
  • Inequalities
  • Composition of Functions

This may appear to be a lot of material but much of it very interconnected and builds on knowledge you already have.

For practice, I suggest that you review the notes you have and the homework you have done. Please make sure to try the problems that you missed the first time around- just recognizing how it is done is not enough for a test.

Some novel problems you can try from Mathematical Modelling 4:

  • pg. 60, #12, 13
  • pg. 66, #30 (ones we didn’t do)
  • pg. 69, #5, 6, 8
  • pg. 72, #14
  • pg. 76, #29
  • pg. 80, #40 (review factoring)
  • pg. 81, #49
