1
Elementary Algebra A review of concepts and computational skills Chapters 5-7

2
Polynomials Polynomial—term, degree, constant, coefficient, like terms Monomial, binomial, trinomial Adding and subtracting polynomials– look for like terms

3
Multiplying Polynomials Multiplying Polynomials by monomials Multiplying Binomials– FOIL method Special Products

4
Dividing Polynomials Dividing polynomials by monomials Dividing polynomials by binomials (long division)

5
Properties of Exponents a m x a n = a m+n a m / a n = a m-n a 0 = 1 (a m ) n = a mn (ab) n = a n b n (a/b) n = a n /b n

6
Negative Exponents and Scientific Notation a –n = 1/a n 1/a -n = a n (a/b) -n = (b/a) n Scientific Notation: Used for very large or very small numbers: a x 10 n where 1<a<10 and n is an integer

7
Factoring Prime, composite numbers; prime factorization GCF- greatest common factor Factoring special products Factor by grouping

8
More Factoring Factoring 2 nd degree trinomials for a = 1 Factoring other 2 nd degree trinomials Sum or difference of 2 cubes Solving quadratics by factoring

9
Rational Expressions Rational Expression: a ratio of 2 polynomials with denominator not equal to zero Evaluating Finding values x cannot be (domain) Reducing

10
Multiply and Divide Rational Expressions Multiply—simplify first, then multiply Divide– flip second expression, then simplify and multiply

11
Add and Subtract Rational Expressions Find the LCD– least common denominator Convert denominators Add or subtract, then simplify

12
More Rational Expressions Complex fractions Solving equations with rational expressions
