# COURSE SYLLABUS FOR INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
This course meets Area II for A.A.S. general education requirement. This course includes the study of real numbers,
linear and quadratic equations, linear inequalities, systems of linear equations, exponents, polynomials, factoring,
rational expressions and related equations, radicals, quadratic formula , completing the square , complex numbers,
absolute value , graphing and applications. Students already with credit for MAC 1102 or 1105 cannot subsequently get
credit for MAT 1033.

PREREQUISITES:
A grade of “C” or better in MAT 0024 or equivalent. Student enrollment in any mathematics course is contingent upon
approval of the Mathematics Department. This means that students who have been misplaced may have their schedule
changed .

TEXT:
Intermediate Algebra by Elayn Martin-Gay, 3rd edition.

MATERIALS:
A scientific calculator is required. It is allowed during exams. Calculators with symbolic manipulation capabilities
(e.g. TI-89, TI-92) will not be allowed for use during exams.

MATERIALS:
Instructional software (MyMathLab) with access to supplemental homework problems, solutions to homework
problems and video lectures is available in the bookstore. Your section may require that all students use the
supplemental software (such as MyMathLab). If your instructor requires the software, it must be purchased by the end
of the first week of classes.

EXAMINATIONS:
There will be five exams and a required comprehensive, departmental final exam given in class during the scheduled
departmental final exam period. NO MAKE-UP EXAMS OR QUIZZES WILL BE GIVEN.

Your grade in the course is determined by the percentage of points earned during the semester. A grade of 60% or
better must be earned on the final exam in order to pass the course.

 5 Unit Tests 500 Quizzes/Participation/Projects/Homework* Final Exam (cumulative)

*Instructor will choose composition of these points

ATTENDANCE:
All late arrivals, early departures and absences must be discussed and cleared with the instructor. More than 3 hours of
unexcused absences or excessive tardiness may result in your withdrawal from the course.

WITHDRAWAL:
The last day to withdraw with a “W” is July 2, 2009. If you remain in the course after that date, you must receive a
grade. Withdrawal after the midpoint may be granted only by the Associate Dean of Instruction and shall be based on
major extenuating circumstances. A student is allowed a maximum of three attempts per course. On the third attempt
current Manatee Community College Catalog or the class schedule.

USE of the ARC:
The Academic Resource Center provides a variety of support for students in MAT 1033, and the instructor will provide
an overview of services. Students are required to spend at least one hour in the ARC during the semester. The
instructor can excuse this requirement where there are extenuating circumstances.

ELECTRONICS POLICY:
Cell phone etiquette must be observed: In-class usage is restricted to emergency situations. Cell phones are not
allowed to be used during tests, not even as a calculator. Inform the instructor before class of any extenuating
circumstances. Electronic devices, such as iPods, Blackberries, etc. are not permitted to be used or worn in class.

MISCONDUCT:
Students are required to adhere to statements regarding student misconduct outlined in official Manatee Community
College publications including the Catalog and the Student Handbook. The minimal consequence of failure to adhere to
these statements is withdrawal from the course.
