MAC 1105 COLLEGE ALGEBRA FALL 2011 Instructor: Warren Bernard Sections: E-mail address: [email protected] Web page: http://people.sfcollege.edu/warren.bernard .024; room A-25; Tues, Thurs: 11:00 -12:15 Office: Unit 2, A-45 Phone: 395-5023 .027; room A-25; Tues, Thurs: 12:30 - 1:45 Hours: M, W, F: 9:00 – 10:00am, 1:00 – 2:00pm T, H: 9:00 - 11:00am th Edition, Custom Edition for Santa Fe College, Plus My Math Lab Student Access Kit (custom for Santa Fe) for pilot sections, ISBN # 0558663214 Prerequisite: MAT1033 or equivalent Online assessments : These are pilot sections of the re-designed MAC1105 course at SFC. A new component of the pilot course is the addition of online assessments as part of your grade. These assessments will include quizzes and homework, using MyMathLab . Further instructions are given on the last two pages of this syllabus and will also be discussed in class. The Gordon Rule: The Gordon Rule states that you must complete six semester hours of mathematics with a grade of C or higher as part of the graduation requirements for the A.A. Degree. A grade of C or higher in this course satisfies 3 hours of that requirement. A grade of D will allow the course to count as an elective, but neither Gordon Rule nor General Education credit will be given. Required Calculator: The TI-83/84 or TI-83/84 plus graphing calculator will be used by your instructor and it is therefore strongly recommended for your use as well. Graphing calculators with CAS capabilities (such as the TI-89 or TI-92) or keyboards are not allowed. No sharing of calculators is permitted during tests. Course Description: The primary learning outcome for this course is Scientific and Quantitative Reasoning, which is to understand and apply mathematical and scientific concepts and reasoning, and analyze and interpret various types of data. The final exam will be used to assess this learning outcome. In an increasingly complex world, mathematical thinking, understanding, and skill are more important than ever. This course provides students with skills for proficiency in subsequent mathematics courses, and the opportunity to learn to communicate and reason mathematically. Topics include: relations; linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, and polynomial functions, including their properties and graphs; radical, rational, and absolute value functions; systems of equations and inequalities. Attendance: There will be a bonus for regular attendance as follows: 0-1 absences 10 pts 2-3 absences 5 pts 4-5 absences 3 pts > 5 absences 0 pts Tests: Three in-class tests will be given along with online quizzes and homework utilizing MyMathLab, work-at-home projects, in-class group work (all extra credit) and a comprehensive, departmental final exam. Test make-ups will be considered only in the event that a student advises me on or before test day as to the reason for missing the test. Projects will not be accepted late under any circumstances. These are absolute policies with no exceptions.
