MAT 117 Complete Course Material MAT 117 Complete Course Material MAT 117 Week 1 DQ 1 Explain three rules for exponents listed in the chart on p. 239 (section 4.2) and give an example illustrating each of these rules. Do not explain the first two definitions listed in the table (Exponent of 1 or 0) or the scientific notation. Create an expression for your classmates to solve that uses at least one of the rules for exponents you have described. Consider responding to your classmates by assisting them in solving the problem you created, developing their explanations of the rules of exponents, or describing real-life situations where their examples might exist.

Square that number and then subtract one. Divide by one less than your original number. Now subtract your original number. Did you reached 1 for an answer? You should have. How does this number game work? You need to explain this using a variable x. Hint: Redo the number game using a variable instead of an actual number and rewrite the problem as one rational expression. How did the number game use the skill of simplifying rational expressions? MAT 117 Week 3 DQ 2 Give an example of a sum of two rational expressions with different denominators, then perform the operation by showing all the steps, including how you found the common denominator. These rational expressions must have a variable in the denominator, such as (3x+1) / (x^2 – 1). Give another example of a sum, ratio, product, or different of two rational expressions for your classmates to solve. Again, the example must have a variable in the denominator. When might you use rational expressions in real life? MAT 117 Week 4 Assignment Rational Expressions and Equations Appendix D MAT 117 Week 5 DQ…show more content…
How do you find a quadratic equation if you are only given the solution? Is it possible to have different quadratic equations with the same solution? Explain. Provide your classmate’s with one or two solutions with which they must create a quadratic equation. Consider responding to your classmates by creating an equation from their solutions. Show that your equation should yield the appropriate number of solutions. If other equations exist with the same solution, provide the alternate equation and provide an explanation. You may want to view responses to the solutions you posted and guide your classmate’s if necessary. MAT 117 Week 7 DQ 2 • Quadratic equations may be solved by graphing, using the quadratic formula, completing the square, and factoring. What are the pros and cons of each of these methods? When might each method be most appropriate? Which method do you prefer? Explain why. MAT 117 Week 8 Assignment Solving and Graphing Quadratic Equations Appendix
