0.1: idea of a set, well known sets (N,Z,Q,I,R),
intersection, union, complement, universal set,

subtraction of sets

0.2: given a number – what sets does it belong to (in N,Q,Z,I,R), interval
notation, order of operations

0.3: rules of exponents, using the rules to simplify complicated expressions

0.4: fractional exponents and how these related to radicals (aka square roots,
cube roots, etc.), rules for

fractional exponents, simplifying expressions with fractional exponents

0.5: naming/giving info about polynomials (coefficients, leading coefficient,
degree, mono/bi/tri,

constant term, multiplying and simplifying polynomials (Note: division of
polynomials will NOT be on

test)

0.6: factoring techniques (factoring out a monomial, factoring by grouping,
using pattern recognition,

factoring quadratics with leading coefficient 1, factoring quadratics with
leading coefficient not 1 by the

magic number approach, using all the techniques at once) (Note: the cubic
patterns at the end of this

HW set will NOT be on the test)

0.7: adding, multiplying polynomials where factoring is needed

1.1: solving 1 equation/1 unknown, solving inequalities

1.2: functions/relations (domain, range, vertical line test,

adding/subtracting/multiplying/dividing/composing functions)

1.3: lines (intercepts, slope, slope-intercept form, point-slope form, parallel
lines)

1.4: not covered on the test (section skipped)

1.5: solving 2 equations/2 unknowns – recognizing the three possibilities that
arise, solving 3 eq./3

unknowns

1.6: cost, revenue, profit, marginal cost, marginal revenue, marginal profit,
break even point, supply,

demand, equilibrium point
