As we launch into our next topic, you will see that one of the (forgotten?) skills you will need is that of re-writing a complicated fraction as a sum of simpler fractions (“partial fraction decomposition”). For those that need some extra help/reminder of this process, here are a couple of videos:
Partial Fraction Decomposition – a basic example. This is a good basic example.
Partial Fraction Decomposition – another example. This is a slightly longer example, and it includes a good explanation of how to set up your partial fractions for different kinds of factors in the denominator.
