Technology: A graphing calculator (e.g. TI83) is
recommended but
not required. Graphing calculators which perform symbolic
manipulations
(e.g. TI89, TI92) will not be allowed for tests and quizzes.
You
may use ordinary scientific calculators, but no graphing
calculators are
allowed for quizzes or exams (including the Final) unless otherwise
specified
by the instructor.
Attendance: is required;
parts of this class may be in a cooperative learning format. You will
be
assigned group work in and out of class. Repeated absences (more than 4
unexcused) will result in lowering your grade in the course. Students
absent
for university sponsored events or must make arrangements for making up
the
work they will miss before they are absent.
Homework: is required. Selected problems from your textbook will
be
assigned and graded. Late homework will not be accepted without a valid
reason.
Disclaimer: The instructor

this syllabus at any time. Changes will be announced in class. It is
the
responsibility of the student to be aware of any changes.
General
Education
Outcomes:
MAC 1105 is
designed to
satisfy the following criteria from the Central Student Outcomes of
General
Education:
We reach
this goal by devoting about one
twothirds of the course to
manipulating expressions, solving equations, solving inequalities, and
studying
functions(linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic). This portion of
the course
will include the concepts needed to understand these topics, the skills
needed
to apply the concepts, and a discussion of the scope of the concepts.
We reach these
goals by studying
variety of equation solving: linear,
quadratic, exponential, logarithmic. The techniques learned to solve
equations
will be applied to solve various types of word problems.
