Small update to the site today that put the "Next Section" and "Previous Section" buttons in a slightly more obvious place. If they appear below (and slightly overlapping) the "Notes", "Practice Problems" and "Assigment Problems" buttons please clear your browsers cache. Some browsers (Chrome I'm looking at you.....) do not always look to the server to see if newer versions of some of the "background" files are available. Clearing your browsers cache will force them to get the newer versions.

Here is the Algebra portion of my Algebra/Trig Review. It contains the following sections.Exponents – A brief review of the basic exponent properties.
Absolute Value – A couple of quick problems to remind you of how absolute value works.
Radicals– A review of radicals and some of their properties.
Rationalizing– A review of a topic that doesn’t always get covered all that well in an algebra class, but is required occasionally in a Calculus class.
Functions– Function notation and function evaluation.
Multiplying Polynomials – A couple of polynomial multiplication problems illustrating common mistakes in a Calculus class.
Factoring– Some basic factoring.
Simplifying Rational Expressions– The ability to simplify rational expressions can be vital in some Calculus problems.
Graphing and Common Graphs – Here are some common functions and how to graph them. The functions include parabolas, circles, ellipses, and hyperbolas.
Solving Equations, Part I – Solving single variable equations, including the quadratic formula.
Solving Equations, Part II – Solving multiple variable equations.
Solving Systems of Equations – Solving systems of equations and some interpretations of the solution.
Solving Inequalities – Solving polynomial and rational inequalities.
Absolute Value Equations and Inequalities – Solving equations and inequalities that involve absolute value.
