Reviews of Algebra and Trigonometry are held at the start of each semester to help you brush up on the essentials of these topics. The reviews are based upon the Math Support Center Capsules: |

flier, or print to hand out to students as a paper copy.

- MATH 1110
- MATH 1106
- MATH 1105 (Algebra only -- MATH 1105 does not use much Trig)
- MATH 1910 -- likely useful only if you're feeling particularly rusty

However, Feedback in the Math Support Center has shown that even the occasional student in somewhat more advanced 1000 level courses have wished they knew about them.

The reviews begin with some suggestions about strategies for success in Math classes and classes which use Mathematics as an important tool. The reviews are presented with the idea that you have seen the material before. The presentation emphasizes Algebra and Trig as important tools to have in your Mathematical toolbox. Simpler concepts are presented in the context of the role they play to enable confident use of more complicated concepts. Emphasizing the "tools" idea, each review also covers at least one topic which students often find challenging as an example of "How Mathematics is Invented" (or is it discovered?!).
