- Circles, Lines and Their Intersections: Do you know the equation of a circle? a line? Do you know how to use them and find intersections?
- Functional Notation and Working with Multipart Functions: Do you know what f(x+h) - f(x) means? Do you know how to work with multipart functions?
- Parametric Linear Motion Problems: Can you find equations desciribing motion on a straight line at a constant speed?
- Parametric Circular Motion: Can you find the equations describing motion on a circle at a constant speed?

- Precalc Review for First week: The first page contains a summary of all the key solving facts (at the bottom is a full example of how to solve the trig problem sin(x) = 0.4). The bottom of the second page discusses circular motion.
- Longer Precalc Review: A longer review that I give to my precalc students.
- Unit Circle and Trig Review: This is a trig review sheet with the unit circle (this come directly from my precalculus course that I teach).
- Parametric Equations Intro: A general intro to parametric equations.
- Here is a parametric equation introduction from our departments precalculus book:

Part 1 of parametric intro (circular motion) and Part 2 of parametric intro (linear motion)

- Announced 9/18/17: Welcome to Math 124! This webpage contains the course syllabus, the homework schedule, a course calendar and links to review material. Each week, I will be posting numerous new review sheets and announcements. Please check back regularly.

Some notes about the first week of the quarter:- General course information can be found at the Math Department 124 Site.
- Your first homework assignment will be visible the first day of class. Note: UW students need to use a special login page for webassign. (You can log-in for free as part of the two week trial period even if you haven't puchased webassign yet. So everyone has access to the homework on the first day of class.):
https://www.webassign.net/washington/login.html. - All students must have access to
*Webassign*in order to do the homework. The access you purchase for Math 124 will also work for 125, 126, and 324 (only one code needed for these four courses since they all use the same book). For information on how to purchase access, follow the links below and read carefully:Least Expensive Option to Purchase Access Online and Instructions to Enter Access Code
