Syllabus for College Algebra

Calculator:


 

You may use a Texas Instruments TI-30XA calculator on the tests and quizzes. You may not use
any other type or model calculator in this course. Use of an unauthorized calculator will result in
a grade of zero and possible disciplinary action. Sharing calculators during quizzes and exams is
not allowed.
Attendance/
Etiquette:


 

Past experience indicates that the students who will succeed in the class are the students who
attend. Please observe common rules of courtesy . Once inside class you should turn off all cell-
phones and pagers and not use them during class. You should plan on staying for the entire class.
Try to avoid leaving early or arriving late as it is a distraction to your classmates and your
instructor. Attendance will be taken in class.
Academic
Honesty:

 

 

 

The work submitted in this class is expected to be your own. Forms of cheating/academic
dishonesty include (but are not limited to): communicating with another student during a test or
quiz (this includes giving information to another student as well as receiving that information),
using an unauthorized calculator, using unauthorized material during a test or quiz, and
communicating contents of a test or quiz to another student. We reserve the right to penalize a
student for academic dishonesty by assigning the student an F for the course. In addition, further
disciplinary action through the university will be taken. Please be aware that disciplinary action
through the university could result in suspension or expulsion.
Extra Help:

 

 

In addition to office hours, the Math Lab is available free of charge to all students enrolled in the
course. The Math Lab is located in MAP 113, and is open Monday to Thursday from 9am to 7pm,
on Friday from 9am to 3pm, and on Sunday from 2pm to 6pm. The text also has an online
assistance program and free tutoring by phone on Sundays-Thursdays. Information is available
on the My Math Lab website or by calling 1-888-777-0463.
Text and
Online Homework:

 

 

It is very important that you do homework regularly. Studies indicate that you should spend at
least two hours working on homework outside of class for every hour you spend in class. The
syllabus gives you the sections in the book that are covered and the homework assignment for
each lecture. Although the text exercises will not typically be collected, it is expected that you
complete the assigned exercises prior to the next lecture. Any student needing extra practice is
encouraged to complete additional exercises from the text. There are also online homework sets
(utilizing the My Math Lab software) which are graded assignments. The homework average will
constitute 15% of your course grade.
Quizzes:
 
Quizzes will be similar to the exercise questions at the end of each section in the book and the
online assignments. The quiz average will constitute 15% of your course grade.
Test Dates:


 

Test 1: Tuesday, February 7, 2006
Test 2: Thursday, February 25, 2006
Test 3: Tuesday, March 21, 2006
Test 4: Tuesday, April 11, 2006
