This looks pretty hardcore, are we supposed to be prepping to learn this? Cause all i know are derivatives.

Can you do 7, 9 and 10? You should be able to now.

Also, 3, 4, and 5 you should be able to get with just using your calculator.

You guys might have talked briefly about 2 last year. We will talk more about 1, 2, 6 and 8 later this school year.

That doesn't seem fairly hard because many of these problems were on the math team sheets. Are we going to actually take the test though?

well, i'm not familiar on trig stuff, mostly because i don't recall the curriculum from last year. so i would be confused on domains and imaginary numbers, and also expressions.

but for the most part, yes that work is doable, just calculator and quick paper work

You can take the test if you want. It is not something required for the class. There is a fee for the test. I would check to see if the university you are interested in takes CLEP tests before I signed up for the test.

We will discuss domain and trigonometric functions in our next unit. Imaginary numbers will come up during 2nd Semester.
