TECHNOLOGY: A graphing calculator may be needed for homework and in class exams.
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. Problems to be turned in are
assigned in class. Reminder: I suggest that a minimum of 3 hours of
homework should be completed for each hour of class. Late homework will not be
accepted.
General Education Outcomes:
MAC 1105 is designed to satisfy the following criteria from the Central Student Outcomes of General Education:
We will reach these goals by learning standard techniques of
algebra: manipulating expressions, solving equations and inequalities, manipulating
functions and graphing functions. The
techniques you learn will be applied to solve various word problems and
standard math problems. You will defend
your answers on quizzes and homework by showing the work and thought processes
leading to your results.
