Your Algebra Homework Can Now Be Easier Than Ever!

College Algebra

Scope of the Course: College Algebra emphasizes mathematical reasoning, problem solving, and real-world
applications using numerical , algebraic, and graphical models . Topics will include problem-solving
techniques, algebraic expressions, polynomials, linear equations , linear inequalities, linear and non-linear
graphs, systems of linear equations in two variables, integer exponents, proportions and radicals.
Particular emphasis will be in application of the algebraic concepts not necessarily the final solution.
Maple software in the Math Lab is recommended for use by this class

Prerequisite: A minimum grade of “C” in Math 56 or 60 or a passing score on the placement test.

With drawals /Drops: Students are responsible for dropping this class per the calendar noted in the class
schedule. Failure to drop may result in a grade of “F” being issued at the end of the term. The Instructor
will not drop students late in the semester. NO SHOWS (failure to attend classes the first week of classes)
will result in a drop by the instructor.

Last Day to Drop (No Record) 9/23 Last Day to Drop with a W 10/18
Last Day to Add (No Code) 8/30 Last Day to Change to AUDIT or CR/NC 9/24
Last Day to Add (with Code) 9/7    

Class Policies: Students are expected to come to the class PREPARED and ON TIME . Only those absences
coordinated ahead of time or involve a personal emergency will be considered excused. Students are
responsible for any instruction and assignments missed during absences. MISSED EXAMS MUST BE
MADE UP WITHIN 3 DAYS OF THE SCHEDULED EXAM. Unannounced Quizzes will be given during this
class. Missed quizzes cannot be made up. All students need to enroll in a noncredit no cost course called
N BASC 202; Class # 76121. This enables the student to obtain help at the Math Lab and to be able to make
up exams in the math lab (Room E-2)

Homework/Testing: Homework is used to supplement class sessions. A minimum number of problems should
be worked to master the subject material. Homework is not collected. However, an initial portion of the
class meeting will be used to review some of the homework problems. Problems from the homework will
form the basis of the quizzes (ODD NUMBERS ONLY). WORK MUST BE SHOWN Students are encouraged
to form discussion groups and “work out” the homework problems.

The final exam will be a comprehensive in-class final exam. It will be closed book and the only notes will
be one side of 1 page of paper.

Grading policy: The student’s grade will be determined as fol lows :

Exam #1 - #4 100 Points each (NO SCORES WILL BE DROPPED))
Writing Skill 100 Points (Every student must complete this skill)
Final Exam 200 Points (In class comprehensive exam 12/17/04, 8:00 AM)
Quizzes 100 Points (Frequency is dependent upon my mood)

Letter Grades will be assigned based upon the student’s point total as follows:

720 to 800 pts A
640 to 719 pts B
544 to 639 pts C
448 to 543 pts D
000 to 447 pts F

Blackboard Learning Course: We have a course setup in Blackboard to communicate via e-mail, list
grades and list lecture notes. This area will also be used to list Exam and Quiz Keys provided they are
completed in time.
