## COURSE OUTLINE:

a. Operations with real numbers, exponents
b. Operations with polynomials and factoring
c. Operations with rational expressions and complex numbers
d. Linear and absolute value equations, formula with applications
f. Inequalities, direct and inverse variation with applications
g. Rectangular Coordinate System, linear and quadratic functions
h. Graphs, algebra of functions , mathematical modeling
i. Polynomial and rational functions
j. Inverse functions, exponential and logarithmic applications
k. Logarithms, exponential and logarithmic functions
m. Graphing parabolas, ellipses , and hyperbolas
n. Systems of linear and nonlinear equations
o. Systems of inequalities and linear programming

## EXPECTED COURSE OUTCOMES:

The student will be able to communicate in the language of mathematics and have a working knowledge of the following topics:

a. Operations with real numbers and exponents
b. Operations with polynomials and factoring
c. Operations with rational expressions and complex numbers
d. Solving linear, quadratic, absolute value, radical, rational, and higher order equations
e. Using the Rectangular Coordinate System to graph linear equations in two variables
f. Functions and the algebra of functions
g. Mathematical modeling
h. Solving inequalities
i. Solving exponential and logarithmic equations
j. Graphing nonlinear equations (parabolas, ellipses, hyperbolas)
k. Solving systems of linear and nonlinear equations and inequalities
l. Using linear programming to solve real world problems

## HOMEWORK:

Homework will be assigned and discussed in class but not taken for a grade, 2-3 problem quizzes taken directly from the homework will be given on an almost daily basis (do not fall behind with the assignments). Exam questions will be very similar to homework problems. If you are to succeed in this class you must do the homework and ask questions.

## ATTENDANCE:

You are expected to be on time and attend all classes (the majority of failing grades are due to lack of attendance). Role will be taken every class meeting. Excessive unexcused absences may result in a failing grade and also may be considered as class abandonment by the college (see catalog). Exceptions will be made for extraordinary circumstances, athletes absent due to sports events, and students participating in college related functions. In the event a class is missed, the student is responsible for all material and assignments missed. Check with the instructor or a fellow student for assignments. If you know in advance that you will be unable to attend class (especially on an scheduled exam day), contact the instructor prior to that day. Quizzes and exams can only be made up for an excused absence and must be made up within one week of the date of the missed quiz or exam.

Your grade will be de termined by daily quizzes (approximately 25) worth 10 points each, 6-7 chapter exams worth 100 points each, and a comprehensive final worth 200 points. Your final grade will be determined by the total number of points earned divided by the total number of possible points.

## WITH DRAWAL POLICY :

A grade of “W” will be assigned if the student completes the withdrawal process by the withdrawal deadline. If the student does not do this, but simply quits coming to class, a grade of “F” will be assigned. See school policy.

## Americans with Disabilities Act:

Any student with a mental or physical disability that may affect his or her performance should inform me by the second-class meeting so that, if possible, reasonable accommodations can be made.

## NOTES:

1. No disruptive or disrespectful behavior will be tolerated!
2. Cheating will not be tolerated! Refer to Academic Integrity Statement in SCC College Catalog
3. No sleeping in class!
4. Cell phones are to be turned off (except for emergencies)!
5. Calculators may or may not be allowed on quizzes or exams at instructor’s discretion!
6. If you have questions/problems come to my office or go to the Resource Center! Please!
7. To be successful in this class, expect to spend at least 9-12 hours per week studying outside of class!
8. Syllabus is subject to change at instructor’s discretion!
9. Pencils only! No ink pens!
