**Practice Exercises for Test # 1 - Monday, September 18
**

Exercises from Chapter Two:

(this is addition to the exercises already listed further down)

- page 132, # 15-31 odd (functions, domain and range)
- page 147, # 3-15 odd (graphs and symmetries)
- page 148, # 33-41 odd (coordinate transformations)

Test # 1 covers sections 1.1 through 2.5, so after you have

finished the ones posted here you can look over the review questions

and the chapter tests at the end of Chapters One and Two.

Exercises from Chapter Two:

(there are more exercises in the textbook than the ones listed below,

but the ones listed are the ones to make sure you know how to do

before taking Monday's quiz, which **also includes Absolute Value problems**

from Chapter One, as listed down below and reviewed in class)

- page 88, # 1-15 odd (the Cartesian coordinate system)
- page 102, # 1-7 odd (graphs in the xy-plane)
- Note: exercises # 25-43 on page 102 and # 49-55 on page 103

cover equations for**circles**, which are not on Quiz # 2

but**will**be on Test # 1) - pages 116-17, # 1-31 odd (Equations for Lines)

I would estimate that 40% of Quiz # 2 will cover absolute value problems

(from Chapter One), while 60% will cover equations for lines (from Chapter Two).

I know which problems I want you to look over from the rest of Chapter Two,

in order to get ready for Test # 1, and I will post those after Monday's quiz.

In the meantime, here is the (much anticipated) link to the first
