So far, Unit A should have been very much review... at least we hope it has been! We hope you have felt like "this is easy!"
Concepts 8-10 explore some aspects of math that you should have been exposed to in the past, but are actually relatively new.
Don't expect to breeze through this tutorial, and expect that it will be a little tough. Send questions my way so I can clarify for you!!
Please take this lesson SLOWLY, and make sure to PAUSE, REWIND, AND REWATCH the video as needed in order to ensure your understanding.
Congratulations, you are almost done with Unit A!
This video will introduce you to piecewise functions and teach you how to evaluate piecewise functions. It looks tricky at first, but basically you just have to identify WHICH piece the x-value fits in, and then plug it into that ONE PIECE. Just like we're used to :)

This VERY IMPORTANT VIDEO will teach you how to write in INTERVAL NOTATION - a skill you must have mastered for this entire school year! Pay attention carefully and make sure to ask any questions below!

This video will help us find the domain of four types of functions (helped with the acronym PREO) and write that domain in interval notation.

This quick song will help you to memorize the difference quotient, a formula we will be using all year and will form the foundations of Calculus next year. The sooner you master it, the better!

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.
Page 9 #1-4, 6-9
Page 10 #1-12
Page 11 #1-9 (10-21 optional but suggested)
Page 12-15 #3,4,6,8
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.
