So you are about to continue your study
of precalculus. Congratulations! The world needs you, and thousands of
others like you---people trained in algebra and, indeed, in more far
more advanced mathematics. The world needs you for carrying on the work
begun by others and for making all the wonderful discoveries which are
still to be made.
The demands that classes, homework, work and family place on your time is a very difficult load to carry. One key to managing your time is developing a schedule, and sticking to it. Remember that I am here to help you be successful!
