### Thursday's Quiz Topics

Now that we’re through the worst of the AP season, we can finally get back on track (after the Junior retreat on Friday, anyway)! Here’s a list of topics for Thursday’s quiz:

As a reminder, your Weekly Challenge will be due on Monday, and the test for Chapter 15 will be next Friday.

**Given a graph of a function:**

__Precalculus Quiz 15.1-3 Topics__

Interpret the results of your synthetic substitution.

Given the factored form of a cubic, determine the zeros of the function.

Given data for a cubic function:

Prove the constant third difference property

Determine the equation for the function algebraically (matrices)

That’s it! The format’s the same as always – ½ Non-calculator, ½ Calculator. There are 20 questions on the Non-calculator portion and 20 questions on the Calculator section (all worth 1 point each). If you know your stuff, you should be able to finish quickly. I’ll be around after school on Wednesday (today), and on campus by 7:00 AM on Thursday.
