1 College Algebra: A Missive from the Math Department Learning College Algebra takes effort on your part as the student. Here are some hints for studying that you may find useful. Work Problems If you do, and understand every exercise that is assigned (and others), then the exams will be mostly straightforward and familiar to you. Generally speaking, the exams in College Algebra focus on problem solving. The level of difficulty of the problems on examinations will usually vary from one problem to another  just as the difficulty of (practice) exercises vary. Some problems will be easy, while some others may be a little more challenging. In brief, the more you practice, the better you will become at problem solving and your understanding of the material will deepen and improve. Study For Understanding A primary goal of this course is for you to learn to solve problems. It is not enough to solve a problem by finding a similar example worked in the text or in your lecture notes and plugging in different numbers. After all, you won t have your text and notes available during exams! You should study the text and your notes until you think you understand the new ideas, and then test your understanding by working the exercises. Read Actively Read the material on each subject in the text before the material is covered in class; by doing so, you will be prepared to understand what your instructor says in each lecture. This makes it easier to take notes and to focus your attention on the more difficult material. Reread a portion of the book after some later material has had a chance to sink in. If you don t understand, mark it and be sure to keep coming back to try again until you do understand it. Read with your pencil in hand; work out the exercises in the margin as you go. Take Advantage Of Office Hours, and Tutoring We have free tutoring at HCC both online and in person. See the HCC website for information on tutoring. You can also discuss this with your instructor; they will be happy to help you. Whether visiting with your instructor or attending tutoring, being prepared with specific questions or problems can make your visit and study time more productive. The first midterm covers all the material from Chapter Sections 1.4, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.1, 2.2, 2., 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, 2.8, and.1. You should be familiar with the concepts in these sections. The information on this sheet is intended to help you identify some of the key points that you should be comfortable knowing. It is not a substitute for lectures, homework assignments, and quizzes nor is it intended to reflect a comprehensive coverage of all of the course content up to the midpoint of the semester. Thus, it is possible that there will be questions on exams that are not completely covered or answered by the material on this review sheet. Work through each of these problems; only use the answers to check your work. If you have difficulty, then first look for similar problems in the textbook; then ask your instructor for guidance. In addition, working with the HCC tutors can be very beneficial and help improve your time spent studying. Best Wishes, The Math Department Created/Revised by Math Department 2/17/18 Page 1
2 Solving Equations and Inequalities Quadratic Equations You should be familiar with the following terms, concepts, and expressions: quadratic equation the standard form of a quadratic equation zero or root solution completing the square the quadratic formula discriminant Note 1. A quadratic equation in standard form is written as follows: ax 2 + bx+c = 0 where a, b, and c R with a 0. Note 2. You should be able to solve a quadratic equation (i.e. find the zeros of a quadratic function) by using any of the following techniques: factoring, completing the square using the quadratic formula. Note. You should be able to determine whether a quadratic equation has 0, 1, or 2 realnumber solutions by examining the sign of its discriminant, (i.e., b 2 4ac). Note 4.
