HONORS PRECALCULUS
SUMMER PACKET
 Going into Precalculus, there are certain skills that have been taught to you over the previous years
that we assume you have. If you do not have these skills, you will find that you will consistently get
problems incorrect next year, even though you understand the precalculus concepts. It is frustrating
for students when they are tripped up by the algebra and not the precalculus.

 This summer packet is intended for you to brush up and possibly relearn these topics. We assume that
you have basic skills in algebra. Being able to solve equations, work with algebraic expressions, and
basic factoring, for example, should now be a part of you. These are skills that are used continually in
class.

 You need to get off to a good start next year so spend some quality time on this packet this summer. It
is a mistake to decide to do this now. Let it go until mid summer. We want these techniques to be
relatively fresh in your mind in the fall. However, do not wait to do them at the very last minute. These
take time. Have a good summer and see you in the fall.

DIRECTIONS: Go to www.smsd.org/schools/smnorth to print of the PDF file of the “Precalculus
Summer Packet 2012”. Show all work on loose leaf paper, write neatly, and separate each section.
The work will be turned in with this packet. This packet will be graded for completion as well as spot-
checked for accuracy. A key to the packet will be posted in August. There will be a test on the material
covered in this packet. This test will be your first major grade of the semester and it is important that
you start off the year strong. This packet is due the day of the test in the fall.

REAL NUMBERS AND INEQUALITIES
Interval Notation Notes
Interval Notation is used instead of inequality notation.

We use brackets [ or ] to signify that we include the endpoint and we use parentheses ( or ) to signify that we do not
include the endpoint. However, we will always use parentheses with the infinity symbol since you can never reach
infinity.

For example, to express x  5 in interval notation we would write  5,  because this interval includes all numbers

greater than 5. However, to express x  5 we would write 5,  because we can now include the number 5 in our
interval.

Next, to express x  3 we would write  ,3 since we want to include all numbers less than 3. Similarly x  3 would

be written as  ,3 since we can include 3 now.

We can also use interval notation to express compound inequalities.

For example the “and” compound inequality 1  x  6 would be written as 1,6 since it includes numbers between 1

and 6 but not including either number. However, if we have 4  x  8 we would write  4,8 since we need to
include -4 but not 8.

To write the “or” inequality x  2 or x  9 we would write  , 2   9,  . We use the union symbol to join the

“or” inequality. Similarly to express x  4 or x  1 we would write  , 4   1,   .

Use interval notation to describe the interval of real numbers.
