GENERALCOURSE REQUIREMENTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS:
A graphing calculator is required of each student. The Mathematics Division recommends and usesthe TI‑83(or 84) or TI‑83(or 84) Plus Graphing Calculator.
There is a video series that correlates with sections of therequired text. These tapes areavailable for student use in the Learning Lab.

COURSEGOALS:
1. To develop instudents a deeper and broader understanding of algebraic concepts, principlesand methods than what is achieved in Math 080.
2. To develop instudents intermediate algebraic skills necessary for success in subsequentmathematics courses and other courses requiring mathematical skills.
3. To develop instudents the problem‑solving skills needed to interpret, analyze andsolve applied problems requiring intermediate‑level algebraic skills.
4. To incorporate graphingcalculators whenever appropriate to illustrate concepts and solve problems.
MAJOR CORE COURSEOBJECTIVES:
Upon successfulcompletion of this course students should be able to:
1. Calculate the slope of the line.
2. Write equations of lines using thepoint‑slope form and the slope‑intercept form.
3. Algebraically solve linear,quadratic, and rational equations, linear inequalities, and 2 x 2 systems oflinear equations and check solutions using a graphing utility.
4. Graph linear and quadratic functionsby hand and find the significant features of the graph, such as the intercepts,vertex, and slope, where appropriate, and verify these features using agraphing utility.
5. Determine if an equation,graph, or a table of values represents a function, find the domain of simplefunctions, and perform basic function operations.
*6. Solve applications that require linear orquadratic functions, linear inequalities, or systems of linear equationsalgebraically or by using a graphing utility.
7. Perform operations with rationalexpressions.
8. Simplify expressions with integerand rational exponents.
9. Perform operations with radicalexpressions.

INSTRUCTIONAL POLICIES:
Assignments: Routinehomework problems will be assigned at each class to be turned in at the nextclass. Worksheet homework will bedistributed and is due on an assigned date.Homework will be graded and returned. Suggested exercises will be givenand the student is strongly encouraged to do them. They are not handed in, butquestions on them during class or office hours are welcome.
Attendance: Attendancewill be noted at each class session. Ifyou miss a class you are responsiblefor finding out what you missed andmaking arrangements for making up the work.Office hours are for questions not answered in class; they are not make-up classes.
Grading Procedures: At least three in-classexams will be given during the semester with at least one weeks notice givenbefore the date of the exam. The gradeon homework will count as 1 in-class exam.The Final exam will be given as scheduled by the college and counts from25 33% of your course grade.
Grading Policy: Grades are based on thescale: 90 100 = A range. 80 89 = B range.
67 79 = Crange. 55 66 = D range. Less than55 = E.
Missed Examination: If you must miss an exam fora very good reason, let me know assoon as possible. Arrangements may bemade to take an exam early, but do not expect to be able to make up an exam ifyou let me know after the fact.
Drop Policy:
College Policy: Students may officially drop a class and receive a DR grade anytimeup until the end of the day March 29, 2006.If a student stops attending without officially withdrawing, theinstructor may record either an E or a DR grade.
Instructor Policy: Students may receive a DR grade if they make a request for thegrade in writing to the instructor before noon on April 28, 2006.
Academic Dishonesty:
College Boardof Trustees Policy #8500 (adopted 3/17/97):
A...It shall be the policyof the College that determination of the fact of academic dishonesty by astudent shall be a matter of individual judgement by the instructor. The instructor may administer a penalty upto, and including, failure in the particular course...
InstructorPolicy: Academic dishonesty of any form will begrounds for immediate failure in the course and the recording of a final gradeof E in the course. To insure theintegrity of test scores, students are not allowed to leave the classroomduring tests.
MATH DIVISION POLICY ON CUT-OFF DATE FORSTUDENT DROP-DOWNS
A registered student mayonly drop-down (move-up) to another math class within the first three weeks of the Fall and Wintersemesters. In the Spring and/or Summersemesters, students have only one andone-half weeks to drop-down (move-up) to another class. In order to drop-down (move-up), a studentmust:
Obtain the writtenpermission of his/her current instructor stating that the student wasmisplaced, see the Mathematics Division Director for assistance in finding opensections, and obtain the written permission of the instructor in the new lower(higher) course.
Thestudent must then officially file an Add-Drop form at the Registration office.
