.
Note
1: 
These
tutorials were based on a
previous edition (Version 2.03);
when viewing these videos, you'll
see section numbers of Version
2.03 that are different from the
related section in the Norco
Edition (such as seeing Sec. 8.1
when viewing Sec. 5.1, below). 
 

Note
2: 
Many of the
sections have more than one
video, one as many as 4 parts.
However, some sections have no
video at all, at least not at
this time.

In the two Sec.
3.3 videos I discuss solving an

I made these videos (for Version

Polynomials included Adding and

two sections.

Dividing
Polynomials
Part 1
is about dividing by a monomial;
this is the old Sec. 5.1 video.
In it, I say we are
"starting a new
chapter," but in the Norco
Edition it is at the end of
Chapter 6.
Part 2
is about dividing by a binomial;
this is the old Sec. 6.2 video.
(This is my very first video; you
can probably tell by how
different the sound quality is.)

Factoring
Polynomials: The GCF
In the beginning
of part 1
(from 2:23  16:15) I show the
"Division Method," of
dividing by primes to find the
GCF (Greatest Common Factor).
I used this technique in Version
2.03 but not in the Norco
Edition.

actually a mistake on my part,
and it's too hard to correct, so
it shall stay.
In part 1, I have a little
discussion about the Factor Game.
In Version 2.03 I called the
product number the
"Key" number.

Common
Denominators of Unlike Fractions
In Version 2.03,
Section 6.5 is about adding and
subtracting unlike fractions, and
there are two videos for that
Section 6.5. In the Norco
Edition, we don't actually add or
subtract these unlike fractions.
Instead, we just learn how to get
a common denominator.
The 6.5, Part 1,
video is about getting the common
"target" denominator.
This is what our SEc 8.4 is
about.
We are skipping
the 6.5, Part 2, video (from
Version 2.03) because that is no
longer a part of our course.

Adding

In this video, at
the 7:00 mark, I discuss some
challenging problems from Version

the Norco Edition.
So, I recommend
that you stop
the video at the 7:00 mark
and start
again at the 12:50
mark.

Multiplying
Radical Expressions

make reference to multiplying

Dividing
Radical Expressions
At the beginning
of the video it says, "This
is the 2nd of 2 videos in Section
10.1." This is the
correct video for the Norco
Edition Sec. 9.4. Read on ...
This section is
really about rationalizing
the denominator, a
technique we use to make sure the
denomniator is a whole number.
In Version 2.03 ,
I placed this in Section 10.1,
but I realized it is better to
have it at the end of the
chapter. That's how it is in the
Norco Edition, in Sec. 9.4.
