Concepts 1-3? Should be a piece of cake. If not, please take this lesson VERY SLOWLY, and maybe even do some research of your own online (YouTube, Google, Coolmath.com, etc).
Even though you may be saying, "Oh yeah, I got this"... PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure to FULLY understand the details of this concept. It's MORE than just solving the problems in Math Analysis...
YOU MUST BE ABLE TO SOLVE, EXPLAIN YOUR THOUGHT PROCESSES, AND MAKE CONNECTIONS among these concepts that you have seen as "so easy" in the past.
Start yourself on the right path by taking even these "easy concepts" seriously!
This video will introduce you to VANG - the four ways we will be dealing with functions in Math Analysis. Also, it will review the four types of lines and describe them in terms of the type of slope they will have. This is an important introduction video to make sure you listen through.

Verbally - the rate of change of an object or phenomena. (i.e. You are picking up 5 more shells every 1 week is a rate of change)
Algebraically - found using the formula (y2-y1)/(x2-x1); represented by the letter 'm'
Numerically - on a table, we see the slope as the change (delta) in y over the change (delta) in x
Graphically - on a graph, we see the slope as the rise over the run.
This video will review using the slope formula to find slopes when given two ordered pairs. It is important to also note what type of line is represented by the slope.

This video will review writing the equation of a line when given a point and a slope or when given two points. It will review all four types of lines, including "uphill positive", "downhill negative", "horizontal zero", and "vertical undefined". Both slope-intercept form and point-slope form will be introduced, but this video will focus on slope-intercept form.

This video will review the characteristics of and differences between parallel and perpendicular lines. We will also write the equations of lines that are either parallel or perpendicular to a given line. This lesson will include all types of lines, including "uphill positive", "downhill negative", "horizontal zero", and "vertical undefined".

Before moving on, please make sure the following problems from your SSS are complete and correct, as based on what I went over in the video.

Before moving on, please complete the following PQ problems on your own.
You must MASTER this material, so if you are getting them wrong, you need to figure out how to do them correctly. Please contact me if you have a question (you can add a question at the end of this tutorial) and I can work out another example video for you.
