Educational Philosophy: Instructor provides lecture and many examples of worked out problems. The class is very relaxed and student participation is encouraged. You will (probably) have to work very hard in this course - College Algebra is a difficult subject for many students. The instructor will do as much as he can to help you learn, but learning is truly incumbent on the student and how much they work to master the material and concepts.
Class Assessment: One midterm test and one comprehensive final test will be administered. Weekly homework will be asigned and graded.
Late Submission of Course Materials: No late submission is allowed.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Please turn off cell phones and pagers (or at least put them on vibrate). You should try to be present and on time for each session. Eight weeks is a very short time to learn a difficult course like College Algebra.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92
