Office Hours: Mondays (1:00pm – 3:00pm), Wednesdays (1:00pm-3:00pm) and Fridays (1:00pm-2:00pm) or by appointment. Any changes will be announced in class.


Course Topics:

Rational Expressions, Functions, Graphs and Applications, More about Functions and Equations, Equations and Inequalities Involving Absolute Value, Piecewise Defined Functions, Polynomial and Rational Functions, Exponential and Logarithmic Functions, Inverse Functions Exponential, Logistic, and Logarithmic Models, Trigonometric Functions, Trigonometric Identities and Equations and additional topics in Trigonometry - The Law of Sines, The Law of Cosines, Polar Coordinates, Vectors and Trigonometric Form of a Complex Number. Systems of Equations and Inequalities, Conic Sections and, if time permits we will discuss More Topics in Algebra (Sequences, Counting Methods, Probability, The Binomial Theorem and Mathematical Induction).


Objectives: Upon successful completion of MTH 132 course, students will be able to:

  • achieve a solid foundation in the understanding and use of algebra and trigonometry.

  • develop the basic mathematical skills on graphing rational, exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions, inverse trigonometric functions and interpreting these graphs.

  • students will be able to find trigonometric functions of any angle using acute angles and using unit circle.

  • students will further learn trigonometric identities and equations and some additional topics in trigonometry: the law of sines, the law of cosines, polar coordinates, graphs of polar coordinates, vectors, dot product of vectors and trigonometric form of a complex number.

  • solve the problems of systems of equations and inequalities, conic sections and more topics in algebra (sequences, counting methods, probability, the binomial theorem and mathematical induction).

  • set up mathematical models to represent real life situations.

  • develop facility in using graphing calculators to solve math problems.

  • meet college prerequisites course in calculus, science and engineering courses.



Attendance Policy:

Students are expected to attend all scheduled classes. Your success in this class is directly related to your own efforts. Attendance shall be used in every class meetings. It is the student’s responsibility to find out what was discussed in a missed class. Each unexcused absence will be noted, as they may indicate your lack of a desire to succeed and relieve me of my obligation to assist you. You are responsible for any assignments or important notices that you may have missed. Attendance at the exams is mandatory! If you have a conflict, let me know as soon you learn about the conflict before the exam.


Homework:


  • Homework problems will be assigned. Make it a habit to do your homework every day. Quiz problems are inspired by the homework problems.


Evaluation:


There will be,

  • 3 Midterm tests. (Tests should come every Friday 9:00am to 10:30am and the material the exam will cover shall be clearly addressed in class).

  • 15 Quizzes. (Quizzes will be unannounced and lowest 3 quizzes will be dropped)

  • Final exam. ( 3rd June, 2011, 9:00am to 11:00am)


Testing and Grading:

Quizzes and tests will be given during the regular class sessions. No makeup quiz will be given under any circumstances. Also, no makeup test will be given unless an acceptable excuse is given to the instructor, for example, in the case of illness, a note from a physician. All scheduled tests and examination will be conducted in the classroom.

The final grade will be based on the following components:


Assignment Grade Points Final Grade Letter Grade

Attendance 40 points 90 – 100 A

Quizzes 120 points 80 – 89 B Midterm Exams 300 points 70 – 79 C

Final Exam 140 points 60 – 69 D

Total possible points 600 < 60 F


Math Tutoring Lab:


There is a math tutoring center located in Laidly Hall room #101 for anyone who needs more help in any math courses. I highly recommend you take full advantages of this service as much as possible, not just before exams.


Academic Dishonesty:


Please refer to the Undergraduate catalogue for details regarding University policy on academic dishonesty.


Inclement Weather Policy:


Students can find information concerning Marshall’s policy regarding inclement weather on 2010-2011 undergraduate online catalog:

Policy for Students with Disabilities:


Marshall University is committed to equal opportunity in education for all students, including those with physical, learning and psychological disabilities. University policy states that it is the responsibility of students with disabilities to contact the Office of Disabled Student Services (DSS) in Prichard Hall 117, phone 304 696-2271 to provide documentation of their disability.  Following this, the DSS Coordinator will send a letter to each of the student’s instructors outlining the academic accommodation he/she will need to ensure equality in classroom experiences, outside assignment, testing and grading.  The instructor and student will meet to discuss how the accommodation(s) requested will be provided.  For more information, please visit http://www.marshall.edu/disabled or contact Disabled Student Services Office at Prichard Hall 11, phone 304-696-2271.


Social Justice: All students will be afforded equal opportunity without regard to race, color, sex, religion, age, disability, national origin, or sexual orientation.


Cell Phone:

Please turn all cell phones and pagers off or to silent mode before entering the class room. The classroom is a learning environment and I do not feel students are able to learn while being unfocused.
