Tuesday, September 20th, 7-9pm: Basics of Differentiation.  Define differentiation.  Review differentiation formulas: the power rule, the product rule, the quotient rule, and the chain rule.  Differentiate exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions.

Wednesday, September 21st, 7-9pm: Basics of Lines.  Graph a line from an equation in point-slope form, slope-intercept form, or standard form.  Obtain the equation of a line from a graph.  Change from one equation form to another equation form.  Solve a set of linear equations (intersecting lines).

Tuesday, September 27th, 7-9pm: Properties of exponents and logarithms.  Review the properties of exponents (negative exponent rule, zero exponent rule, product rule, power rule, quotient rule, products raised to powers, quotients raised to powers) and properties of logarithms (product rule, quotient rule, power rule, change of base property).

Wednesday, September 28th, 7-9pm: Trigonometric Functions.  Define trigonometric functions in terms of the unit circle.  Graphing the sine, cosine and tangent functions.  Review some identities and inverse trigonometric functions.
