Welcome to the Summer Semester of Math 101!  

Below I have made a copy of the current syllabus.  The assignment guide is also included at the end of the syllabus, just in case your printed syllabus is "misplaced".  

Each week I will have information regarding when assignments are due and when we will have quizzes or tests.  You should check this website to find out what we are doing in class if you absolutely have to miss a class session.

Good luck with all your classes this semester!

COURSE DISCRIPTION:
This is a course in basic algebra concepts.  Language of, symbols, notation, and concepts, as well as a basic computational skills will be emphasized.  A passing grade in this course will prepare you well for your next mathematics class; additionally, it will enhance your problem-solving strategies for other college courses.  You will pass this class only with an A, B, or C.  Grades of D, F, or Withdrawal mean that you will be required to re-take this course.

MATERIAL TO BE COVERED:
We will attempt to cover all the following chapters this semester, in the following order:

Chapter 1 Real Numbers
Chapter 2 Variable Expressions
Chapter 3 Solving Equations and Inequalities
Chapter 4 Solving Equations and Inequalities/Applications
Chapter 5 Linear Equations and Inequalities/Graphing
Chapter 7 Polynomials
Chapter 8 Factoring
Chapter 9 Algebraic Fractions

ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENTS:
It is important for your success in this class to attend every class session and to be on time.  This means you must attend every single day, Monday thru Friday.  If you must miss a class, let me know as soon as possible.  It is your responsibility to get any missed notes or assignments.  No late assignments will be accepted.  Each assignment must be turned in at the beginning of class the day it is due, therefore, if you miss a class I must receive your assignment before class.

GRADING POLICY:
Algebra, like other subjects, is learned best by doing.  It is very important that you spend time outside of class practicing the concepts and studying.  In order to assist you in your successful completion of this course, exercises from each section, quizzes, and four or five exams will be given. You are responsible for completing all assignments and keeping them in an organized notebook.  No late homework will be accepted.  All assignments must be turned in at the beginning of class the day it is due.  The top 30 homework assignments will be calculated.  Quizzes and exams will be announced in advance.  All quizzes and exams will be given at the beginning of class and the top 15 quiz grades will be calculated.

Inform the instructor, in advance, if you will be unable to attend an exam session.  Only one make-up exam may be taken and it will be different from the original exam.  No make-up exams will be given if you do not contact the instructor before the original exam is given.  

     A comprehensive final will be given on July 27, 2001 from 12:45-2:00 pm.

GRADING CRITERIA:
Grades will be assigned according to the following criteria:

Homework: 300 points
