Textbook: INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, by Lial, Hornsby and Mcginnis, 10th ed. Pearson/Addison-Wesley, Publishers. ISBN: 0-321-50721-5. A scientific calculator, such as a TI-30, (not a graphing calculator) is recommended for this class. The calculator should support the entry of fractions (the fraction key looks like "A b/c" resembling a mixed number like "2 ¾" )

Educational Philosophy: I believe every student has the right to learn and to hear what is being said. Part of your grade includes your level of participation. "Participation" refers to attending and being attentive during class, as well as not distracting others. The participation grade is about 25% of the course grade and is affected by attendance if the absence is not made up as described elsewhere in this document. Also, chronic or unnecessary tardiness may affect your participation grade as well.
Late Submission of Course Materials: All absences must be made up by HANDING IN the completed assignment as soon as possible after the absence. Work must be shown that indicates how each answer was obtained wherever possible. Assignments can be completed in one of two ways: (1) by doing the ODD problems in the "CHAPTER REVIEW EXERCISES" for each section you missed, or (2) by doing the "NOW TRY...." exercises listed at the end of each example in each secton. If extenuating circumstances arise, please make them known to the instructor so that he can work with you in your situation.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Distractions that disrupt the flow of learning will affect your "participation" grade. If you need to have a conversation with someone in the class or via cell phone, please take him or her out of the classroom and finish your conversation. All conversation in the classroom should relate directly to the topic being discussed. Your cooperation in this will be appreciated by all. The classroom will be free of sexual harassment. Unacceptable behaviors include unwelcome sexual advances, or sexually related or racially related jokes or comments
