Description

I MAY drop you from the course for excessive absences, although I make no commitment to do so. It may not be included with the purchase of a used book, and may not be included with a new book purchased at a different bookstore.

Refer to the handout Information about MyMathLab. Students need either a scientific or business calculator. Has log or ln key.

If a student cannot purchase one, calculators are available from the LRS. Graphing calculators are not required, but you will use graphing technology in most sections of the book. Graphing calculators are also available in the LRS. Hence, TI calculators are highly recommended for student use.

There will be 4 exams plus a final exam part of which will be comprehensive. Grades will be weighted as follows: If you take any test late for any reason, there will be a penalty of 10 points off your test grade. However, no late tests will be allowed after I hand the graded tests back in class. If you do not take the test during that period, you will receive a 0 for that grade. In that case, you will need to take the make-up exam to replace that 0.

Withdrawn by student or instructor prior to last withdrawal date on school calendar. Incomplete grades I will be given only in very rare circumstances. Generally, to receive a grade of "I", a student must have taken all tests, be passing, and after the last date to withdraw, have a personal tragedy occur which prevents course completion. An incomplete grade cannot be carried beyond the established date in the following semester.

The completion date is determined by the instructor but may not be later than the final deadline for withdrawal in the subsequent semester.

The instructor may withdraw students for excessive absences 4 but makes no commitment to do this for the student. After the last day to withdraw, neither the student nor the instructor may initiate a withdrawal. It is the responsibility of each student to ensure that his or her name is removed from the roll should he or she decide to withdraw from the class.

The instructor does, however, reserve the right to drop a student should he or she feel it is necessary. The student is also strongly encouraged to retain a copy of the withdrawal form for their records. Students who enroll for the third or subsequent time in a course taken since Fall, , may be charged a higher tuition rate, for that course. State law permits students to withdraw from no more than six courses during their entire undergraduate career at Texas public colleges or universities.

With certain exceptions, all course withdrawals automatically count towards this limit. Details regarding this policy can be found in the ACC college catalog. You should bring your homework to class every day.

It will be collected regularly. There may also be in-class assignments or quizzes collected for a grade as part of your homework grade. There will be a penalty on late homework. Homework that is more than a week late might not receive any credit. If you do not follow the instructions that will be announced in class about how to organize and submit your homework, you may not receive full or any credit for it. Classroom behavior should support and enhance learning. Behavior that disrupts the learning process will be dealt with appropriately, which may include having the student leave class for the rest of that day.

In serious cases, disruptive behavior may lead to a student being withdrawn from the class. All students are expected to actively participate in this class. This can include asking relevant questions in class, participating in class discussions and other in-class activities, helping other students, coming to office hours with questions, and doing other things that contribute to the class.

Please, try to keep up with the homework and with the lecture in class. This means you have to be sure to allow yourself plenty of time to do the homework and to study. It is much easier to ask a question now than to miss it on the test. I expect all students to participate in class discussions and other activities. Trust me, you will get much more out of the class if you become actively involved in it.

It is much more important that you understand the processes involved in solving problems than that you just give me the right answer. If I see from your work that you understand what you are doing, I will usually give partial credit for a problem, even if you made a mistake somewhere along the line. It is also very important that you write what you mean. I will correct your notation the first few times, but I will start counting it wrong if you continue to write things incorrectly.

In addition, please write clearly and legibly. To do homework and study requires two or three times as much time outside of class as the time you spend in class in order to succeed in this course.

ACC main campuses have Learning Labs which offer free first-come, first-serve tutoring in mathematics courses. The locations, contact information and hours of availability of the Learning Labs are posted at: Demonstrate understanding and knowledge of properties of functions, which include domain and range, operations, compositions, and inverses.

Recognize and apply polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions and solve related equations. Evaluate all roots of higher degree polynomial and rational functions. Recognize, solve and apply systems of linear equations using matrices. Quantitative and Empirical Reasoning: Written, Oral and Visual Communication: Statement on Scholastic Dishonesty - A student attending ACC assumes responsibility for conduct compatible with the mission of the college as an educational institution.

Students have the responsibility to submit coursework that is the result of their own thought, research, or self-expression. Students must follow all instructions given by faculty or designated college representatives when taking examinations, placement assessments, tests, quizzes, and evaluations.

Actions constituting scholastic dishonesty include, but are not limited to, plagiarism, cheating, fabrication, collusion, and falsifying documents. Student Rights and Responsibilities - Students at the college have the rights accorded by the U. Constitution to freedom of speech, peaceful assembly, petition, and association. These rights carry with them the responsibility to accord the same rights to others in the college community and not to interfere with or disrupt the educational process.

Opportunity for students to examine and question pertinent data and assumptions of a given discipline, guided by the evidence of scholarly research, is appropriate in a learning environment. This concept is accompanied by an equally demanding concept of responsibility on the part of the student. As willing partners in learning, students must comply with college rules and procedures. Statement on Students with Disabilities - Each ACC campus offers support services for students with documented disabilities.

Students are encouraged to request accommodations when they register for courses or at least three weeks before the start of the semester, otherwise the provision of accommodations may be delayed.
