Objectives and How to Study and Prepare:
1. To be able to use the definitions, rules, and principles of College Algebra to describe and solve algebra problems.
2. To be able to obtain solutions to problems in College Algebra using a general systematic Problem Solving method.
3. To improve self confidence in the ability to state and solve College Algebra problems correctly.
4. To be able to make judgments and assumptions about the feasibility and practicality of College Algebra problems and their solutions.
Outline of Topics and Math Help:
Chapter Topic
R High School Algebra Review
1 Equations and Inequalities
2 Graphs
3 Functions and Their Graphs
4 Polynomial Functions and Inequalities
5 The Zeroes of a Polynomial Function
6 Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
7 The Conics
8 Systems of Equations
Schedule and assignments will be announced regularly in class and will depend upon class progress. All material in the outline of topics will be covered during the semester.
Course Requirements and Essentials of Learning:
Attend classes, turn in class assignments, and complete all tests, quizzes and exams.
Tests:
Three or more will be given. These will be announced in class the week before.
Course Grade:
Tests, Quizzes and Homework 80% Final Exam 20%
Grading Method:
Scores on tests represent a measurement of at least the following factors:
1. The student's knowledge of the material
2. The difficulty of the test material
3. The time available to complete the test
4. The effectiveness of the teacher's instruction
5. Numerous indirectly related things such as testing room
environment, your health, etc.
The grades assigned to test scores are adjusted to minimize the factors other than the student's knowledge of the material by using a numerical ranking of the scores of all class members and by comparison with scores from previous classes. The final course grade is assigned by the same numerical ranking procedure using the student's accumulated total points for the course.
For students falling on the borderline between two grades, factors such as class attendance, class participation, and extra credit work will be used to decide between the grades.
Letter grades will be discussed after each graded test, report, or assignment has been returned.
