In Chapter 1 we review selected topics in algebra and pre-calculus.
These topics are prerequisites for more advanced topics in MATH110.
Some topics and their applications to MATH110 are summarized in the table below:
|Algebra Topic||Prerequisite for MATH110 Calculus Topic|
|Slope and Writing Equation of Straight Lines||Write the equation of tangent line to a curve at a point|
|Factoring polynomial expressions||Identify regions of increasing and decreasing functions by solving polynomials equations|
|Solving Quadratic and Polynomial Equations||Solving equations involving the first and second derivatives of function|
