key words: ratio, comparison. numerator compared to denominator, "number of pieces" /"number of pieces in one whole," fractions in symbols and pictures, complex fractions, fractions with fractions,
division by zero, fractions with zero(s), undefined, indeterminant, Special Limits, f(0) is 0/0.
Take A Derivative by Singing!
Think product rule, quotient rule, and chain rule in words like "first," "second," "inner," and "outer" rather than in symbols like u(x) and g(x). Three 3 typical derivatives are taken and a series of longer chain rule problems.

Key words: "stuff" one needs in precalc and calc to do the homework, recall material a student should understand but has probably just forgotten and wishes to quickly check. Topics include: laws of exponents & logs, trig identities, values of the 6 basic functions of the 30s, 60s, 45s in all 4 quadrants, tables of derivatives and integrals.
