When was the last time you had to factor a polynomial?
I couldn't remember, but somehow I managed to dredge up the process from the deep, dark recesses of my high school memories.
I don't normally have any use for algebra, but today I took the Accuplacer exam for my EDU class at Rio Salado, and it went very well. It took me an hour and 48 minutes to go through all five tests (my score/cut off), which included reading comprehension (119/78), sentence construction (117/87), writing (10/8), arithmetic (119/86), and elementary algebra (116/88).
I don't think I'll be having any difficulties with my classes.
