COURSE: Math 1050060 is a 4 credit hour math class
offered through AOCE. You can expect to spend
at least two hours on homework per one hour of class time. Math 1050060
meets Tuesday and Thursday
evenings from 5:45 – 7:45 pm at the Murray Campus.
PREREQUISITE : Must have completed Math 1010 or equivalent with a C or
better, or have a current
Math ACT score of 23 or higher.
FACULTY: Sarah Jean Hoggan, BS (mathematics), MEd (Phi Kappa Phi)
CONTACT ME: phone: 2788646. Preface your call with “a
student calling,” then leave your name and number (s).
COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course covers functions, inverses and graphs;
polynomial, rational,
radical , exponential, and logarithmic functions; systems of equations and
matrices; applications; arithmetic
and geometric sequences and series, the Binomial Theorem , and counting
principles.
COURSE OBJECTIVES: Students will pass the chapter tests as well as the
final, thereby demonstrating
a basic understanding of solving quadratic equations; functions, their graphs
and inverses ; polynomial,
rational , radical, exponential and logarithmic functions; systems of equations
and matrices; applications;
arithmetic and geometric sequences and series; the Binomial Theorem; and
permutations and
combinations .
CONTENT OVERVIEW: This course begins with a review of intermediate
algebra. It then progresses
to functions and their graphs along with inverse functions. From here, a
comprehensive study of
polynomial and rational functions is presented. Next, exponential and
logarithmic functions are studied.
A variety of methods are presented for solving systems of equations along with
partial fractions and
matrices . The course concludes with sequences, series, mathematical induction,
the Binomial Theorem,
and counting principles.
TEACHING and LEARNING METHODS: Lecture, PowerPoint slides and homework..
HOMEWORK: Homework will not be collected. It is highly recommended that
you work the problems
assigned at the end of each section. If you are having trouble with a particular
type of problem, more
practice may prove helpful by reworking the problems.
EVALUATION: Five (5) midterms plus the final will be given. You may drop
one midterm. No
makeup tests will be given! Any special arrangements must be made in ADVANCE.
Each test will be
worth 100 points. A two (2) hour FINAL will be given. The FINAL will be worth
200 points. All 1050
classes will have a cut off score having the following property : if a student
makes below a D on the Final
Exam, he/she cannot earn a grade of C or better for the course.
TESTS WILL BE GIVEN ON THE FOLLOWING DATES:
1. Thurs. Jan 17
2. Tues. Feb 05
3. Thurs. Feb 21
4. Tues. Mar 11
5. Thurs. April 3
*** FINAL EXAM  Tuesday, April 29 – 5:45 pm***
GRADING: Each of the four highest tests count 1/6.
The FINAL will count 1/3. All students must take
the FINAL. Grades will be given according to the following schedule:
PERCENT  GRADE  PERCENT  GRADE 
TEXT: Larson, Hostetler  PRECALCULUS (7th edition)
CALCULATORS: A 'Graphing' calculator is recommended. Suggested are the
TI82,83,84,85,86,89,92;

ADA: “The University of Utah seeks to provide equal
access to its programs, services and activities for
people with disabilities. If you will need accommodations in the class,
reasonable prior notice needs to be
given to the Center for Disability Services, 162 Union Building, 5815020 (V/TDD).
CDS will work with
you and the instructor to make arrangements for accommodations.”
FACULTY RESPONSIBILITIES: “All students are expected to maintain
professional behavior in the
classroom setting, according to the Student Code, spelled out in the Student
Handbook. Students have
specific rights in the classroom as detailed in Article III of the Code. The
Code also specifies proscribed
conduct (Article XI) that involves cheating on tests, plagiarism, and/or
collusion, as well as fraud, theft,
etc. Students should read the Code carefully and know they are responsible for
the content. According to
Faculty Rules and Regulations , it is the faculty responsibility to enforce
responsible classroom behaviors,
and I will do so, beginning with verbal warnings and progressing to dismissal
from class and a failing
grade. Students have the right to appeal such action to the Student Behavior
Committee.”
As a reminder: Dress  The educational process is facilitated by
professional behavior on the part of all;
therefore, students are encouraged to dress appropriately for class. TURN
CELL PHONES OFF
BEFORE COMING CLASS – NOT ON VIBRATE, BUT OFF! DO NOT go outside in the
middle of
class to make or answer a phone call. Do not talk while I am lecturing or while
other students are asking
questions. DO NOT come to class late or leave early. It is not only
inconsiderate, but also quite disruptive
to other students.
