August 13, 2014 - FINAL EXAM
August 11, 2014 - (no lecture notes - see textbook)
We will finish chapter 6, in particular, we will discuss how to do exponential and logistic modeling.
August 6, 2014 - (no lecture notes - see textbook)
We continued discussion of chapter 6, in particular how to solve various types of exponential and logarithmic equations.
August 4, 2014 - (no lecture notes - see textbook)
We began discussing chapter 6.
July 30, 2014 - no lecture notes
We practiced problems from chapter 3 and chapter 4.
We discussed 3.4, 4.1, 4.2, and briefly 4.3 (we won't do much from this section).
July 23, 2014 -
We discussed 3.2, 3.3, and the beginning of 3.4 (notes for 3.4 in July 28 link).
We discussed section 3.1.
We finished 5.1 and 5.2 (all lecture notes for these two sections are in July 9th notes), and we discussed 1.7.
We completed our discussion of section 2.5, and began discussion of 5.1 and 5.2.
We discussed sections 2.3, 2.2, 2.4, and the beginnings of 2.5. It was noted that 2.1 is mostly review and should be read as a refresher.
We discussed function arithmetic (1.5) and function behavior (1.6), and briefly discussed an application of comparing linear equations.
We discussed evaluating and graphing functions (sections1.3 thru 1.6), piece-wise functions, evaluating and graphing piece-wise functions.
We discussed the distance formula, the equation of a circle in the plane, the definition of a function (section 1.3), and function notation (section 1.4).
We reviewed the syllabus and reviewed topics related to quadratics, lines, and absolute values. In particular, we looked at solving quadratic equations equal to zero, finding the vertex of a parabola, interpreting the meaning of slopes and vertical intercepts, and an application of absolute value inequalities.

The first couple days of class will be largely devoted to reviewing various (but not all) topics from Chapter 0, sections 0.3 through 0.10 ("zero point ten"). Chapter 0 can be found here. If you are a bit rusty, you should review them in advance of class to make the best use of class time.
