__________________________________________________________________________________________________
This 3 credit Gordon Rule course in combination with MAC1140 will prepare students to take the calculus sequence
MAC2311, MAC2312, and MAC2313. The course includes an indepth study of the trigonometric functions, their
properties and graphs; inverse trigonometric functions, their properties and graphs; trigonometric identities; conditional
trigonometric equations; vector algebra; parametric equations; polar coordinates; solutions of triangles; and applications.
___________________________________________________________________________________________________
Homework will be assigned for each lesson but will not be collected.
A typical student should be prepared to spend at least
69 quality hours per week outside the classroom doing math related activities.
These include reviewing class notes, trying
the homework or doing the worksheets (see below).
Even though homework will not be collected, your ability to
understand the material and perform well on tests will be greatly enhanced by attempting the homework and keeping up
with the material as it is presented in class.
Feel free to visit my office doing the hours listed above, or to utilize the math
lab located in room G14.
There are also resources for students available at the SFC math department home page
(
http://www.sfcollege.edu/math/index.php?section=resources_student
).
Regular attendance is an important component of this course.
You will be given 25 points for attendance at the beginning
of the semester, with 3 points subtracted per absence, beginning with the fifth absence, with no distinction between excused
and unexcused absences.
This policy will begin on August 26
th
.
Extreme cases will be dealt with on an individual basis.
There will be six worksheets due on days posted on the calendar (see page 3).
These takehome worksheets are worth 25
points each and are similar in style and content to the inclass tests to follow.
Putting maximum effort into the worksheet
amounts to quality study time for the test.
Worksheets will not be collected late under any circumstances
and a grade of
zero will be assigned if a worksheet is not turned in.
Only the best five grades will count.
