EPECTED COURSE OUTCOMES:
The student will develop a more in depth understanding and working knowledge of the fol lowing topics :

d. Number systems
e. Solving linear equations
f. Modeling with linear equations
g. Exponential equations
h. Ratios, proportions, and variations
i. Solving systems of equations and inequalities
j. Geometry: lines, angles, circles , polygons, area, perimeter, volume
k. Metric system
l. Percent, interest, loans, investments

HOMEWORK: Homework will be assigned and discussed in class but may or may not be taken for a grade, at the discretion of the instructor. Exam questions will be very similar to homework problems. If you expect to succeed in this class you must do the homework and ask questions.

ATTENDANCE: You are expected to be on time and attend all classes (the majority of failing grades are due to lack of attendance). Role will be taken every class meeting and continuous absences will be reported to the Dean of Enrollment Management through the Early Alert System. Excessive unexcused absences may result in a failing grade and also may be considered as class abandonment by the college (see catalog). Exceptions will be made for extraordinary circumstances, athletes absent due to sports events, and students participating in college related functions. In the event a class is missed, the student is responsible for all material and assignments missed. Check with the instructor or a fellow student for assignments. If you know in advance that you will be unable to attend class (especially on an scheduled exam day), contact the instructor prior to that day. Quizzes and exams can only be made up for an excused absence and must be made up within one week of the date of the missed quiz or exam.

GRADING: Your grade will be determined by daily quizzes (approximately 50) worth 10 points each, 5-6 chapter exams worth 100 points each, and a comprehensive final worth 200 points. Your final grade will be determined by the total number of points earned divided by the total number of possible points.

 90-100 A 80-89 B 70-79 C 60-69 D Below 60 F

WITHDRAWAL POLICY: A grade of “W” will be assigned if the student completes the withdrawal process by the withdrawal deadline. If the student does not do this, but simply quits coming to class, a grade of “F” will be assigned. See school policy.

Americans with Disabilities Act: Any student with a mental or physical disability that may affect his or her performance should inform me by the second-class meeting so that, if possible, reasonable accommodations can be made.

NOTES:
1. No disruptive or disrespectful behavior will be tolerated!
2. Cheating will not be tolerated! Refer to Academic Integrity Statement in SCC College Catalog.
