Course Work:
Calculator: I will be using the TI83.You are free to use a TI /Casio CFX9850GB PLUS graphing calculator, however it is your responsibility to learn how to use it. Class time will be spent on how to graph, plot points, find regression curves, etc. only for the TI83. I highly recommend using the same calculator as I will be using this semester. Calculators with QWERTY keyboards or those that do symbolic algebra such as the TI89, or the Casio FX2 or 9970G cannot be used in class or during an exam.
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 1147 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
precalculus: manipulating expressions, solving
algebraic and trigonometric equations and inequalities, manipulating functions,
graphing functions, using the trigonometric functions, solving right triangles,
and solving trigonometric identities. 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.
