Spring 2008 Syllabus

Bulletin Description
Algebra I (3)
Equivalent to first year high school algebra. Fundamental operations on numbers, polynomials, and rational expressions; factoring, linear equations, and inequalities. Units and grades earned do not count towards graduation requirements.
Goals:
The purpose of this course is to prepare students for success in future mathematics courses, such as MATH 70. During the course students will have the opportunity to develop their ability to use algebra to make mathematical models, represent/solve linear functions, represent quadratic functions, solve quadratic problems, do polynomial arithmetic and solve systems of equations.
Prerequisites:
Students must have a score in the range of 3040 on the Entry Level Mathematics Exam (ELM).
Textbook and Software:
Required: Elementary and Intermediate Algebra (Special Edition, Chapters 27), by Bittenger, Ellenbogen, and Johnson
Optional: Students Solution Manual (workedout solutions to oddnumbered exercises)
Digital Video Tutor (CDROM videos, instructors review concepts and work problems from each section of the textbook)
Math XL is an interetbased ( HYPERLINK "http://www.mathxl.com" www.mathxl.com) tutorial/testing system that covers all topics in the textbook. A password that allows you to access Math XL comes with the textbook. Another web site, HYPERLINK "http://www.MyMathLab.com" www.MyMathLab.com, has additional online help.
Free Tutoring: All Math 60 students can obtain free tutoring on campus from the Community Access and Retention Program, the Learning Assistance Center, the Mathematics Study Room, and my office hours.
Evaluation:
Final grades will be based on weekly homework, class participation, daily quizzes, five chapter tests and the final. Homework may include problems worked on in class and as homework. Students are expected to attempt every exercise on every assignment, and if they cannot complete an exercise to explain where they had difficulty. No late homework will be accepted; however the lowest homework score will be dropped. Homework will be assigned during every class and will be due on Friday of the next week, unless stated otherwise. The tests are all comprehensive and the lowest score will be dropped. The percentages below represent the approximate weighting for grading:
Homework 30%
Class Participation 10%
Quizzes 10%
Chapter Tests (5) 30%
Final Exam 20%
Homework Requirements:
Homework will not be graded unless it is neat, i.e. it must be stapled, ruffled edges removed, answers all boxed in, no scratched out work, and finally all exercises and sections should be in numerical order. Minor lapses in these requirements will be ignored (I will not judge too harshly) but otherwise you will receive no credit, not even partial credit.

Withdrawal Deadline
Students needing to withdraw from the course must do so before the withdrawal deadline in the academic calendarNovember 16. Late withdrawals are generally not accepted by the College of Science and Engineering.
Disabilities Resource Center
Students with disabilities needing reasonable accommodations are encouraged to contact the instructor early in the semester. The Resource Center (Student Services Building, Room 110, (415) 3381041, HYPERLINK "mailto:drc@sfsu.edu" drc@sfsu.edu) is available to facilitate the reasonable accommodations process.
Religious Holidays
Reasonable accommodations will be made for you to observe religious holidays when such observances require you to be absent from class activities. It is your responsibility to inform the instructor during the first two weeks of class, in writing, about such holidays, particularly if they conflict with test dates.
