Strepsiades is a nincompoop. He is lazy, dumb, ignorant and his family is a wreck. He
cannot control his son Pheidippides which leads to a whole host of problems. These problems

Catullus likes to take a look at well-known myths from a different perspective. In
Catullus 64 he frames the story of Theseus and Ariadne with the story of the Argonauts. Ovid
uses a similar technique
Finding the Vertex and Maximum or Minimum of a Parabola
To find the vertex of a parabola you just need the following formula:
Once you calculate a value for x, use that value in the formula of the

The Square Root Property
Remember:
Every positive number has 2 square roots a positive one and a negative
one.
Squaring and taking the square root are opposite operations and undo
each other.

Writing the Equation of a Line
Given the slope and y-intercept:
Slope = 5; y-intercept is (0, 2) then the equation is y = 5x 2.
Given the slope and a point on the line:
Slope = and the line passes thr
Writing a Quadratic Equation Given the Solutions
Hint: These are sometimes easiest to do if you write UP the page, starting
with the solutions at the bottom where they would be if you had solved the

Using Systems of Equations
Learning to set up word problems involving systems of equations is a matter of
learning to read carefully, to extract data from the given situation and to apply a

Solving for y in an equation
Many times, its most convenient when the equation of a line is solved for y.
Case 1:
y = 3x + 2
Happy day! Its already solved for y
5x + y = 8
Subtract 5x from each side

Solutions to Systems of Linear Equations in Two Variables
A system of linear equations is just two or more equations that are graphed on
the same graph.
A solution to a system of equations is the poin
The Pythagorean Theorem
The Pythagorean Theorem is specific to right triangles triangles that
have one right angle.

Substitution
A system of linear equations may be solved by substitution. This is usually the
best method to use when one of the equations is already solved for a variable.
y = 2x + 3
This equation is
Radical Signs and Fractional Exponents
Radical signs: When we use a radical sign like
the expression inside
the radical sign (16) is called the radicand and the small number in the crook

The EASIEST Way to Calculate The Slope Between 2 Points
A few things to remember before we start:
Ordered pairs are always (x, y) so the x-value is the first coordinate and the
y-value is the second c
Simplifying Radical Expressions
There are 3 ways to think about these problems:
1) Find factors that are perfect squares, cubes, etc.
72 x3 36 *2* x2 * x 36 * x2 * 2 x 6 x 2 x
2) Use fractional expone

Remember that squaring and taking the square root are opposite
operations just like adding and subtracting are opposite operations.

Multiplying Radicals
When you multiply radicals, you just have to remember that there are innies
(expressions under the radical sign) and outies (expressions outside the radical
sign).

Linear Inequalities in Two Variables
Is an ordered pair a solution to a linear inequality?
Plug the x value in for the x and the y value in for the y
If it results in a true statement, the ordered pai
Finding the Intercepts of a Parabola
Y-intercept: Parabolas with an x squared term always either open upward
or downward and they only cross the y-axis in one place. Consequently, they
only have one y
Ordered Pairs and Linear Equations
Linear Equation: the equation of a line.
It may have one or two variables. 2x + 3y = 6, y = 5, and x = 2 are all equations of lines.

Inverse Variation
Inverse variation occurs when increasing one item causes something else to
decrease in a linear fashion. When you are driving, the faster you go, the
less time it takes to get to you
Graphing Systems of Inequalities
Graphing a system of linear inequalities is just a matter of plotting two
inequalities on the same graph.

Completing the Square
This is what is known as a perfect square trinomial:
x2 + 6x + 9 = (x + 3)(x + 3) = (x + 3)2
