using factoring; Manipulate and simplify algebraic fractions using the basic operations of
, subtraction, multiplication and division; Solve equations containing algebraic
fractions; Graph equations in two variables; Determine equations of lines; Solve systems
of equations; Determine roots; Simplify, add, subtract, multiply and divide radicals ;
Solve equations containing radicals; Solve quadratic equations using completing the
square and the quadratic formula; Define and evaluate relations and functions.

## Homework and Exams

Homework will be assigned but will not be collected. Quizzes (50 points total) will be given
throughout the semester. Quizzes will be taken verbatim from previously assigned homework
and notes will be allowed. Therefore, it is important that you complete homework assignments
on time. Attendance is important since no make up quizzes will be assigned. There will be five
exams (worth 100 points each) from which the best four will be averaged into your grade.
Because of this, no make-up exams will be given. No calculators will be allowed on any
exams. However, a calculator is recommended for some homework problems. In addition, there
will be a common final exam (200 points) which will be cumulative covering the material
presented throughout the course. Updated grades will be posted after each exam. Students
should plan to spend a minimum of three hours of study outside the class for each hour of
lecture. It is also important that students read the textbook. The lecture is designed as a
supplement to the text and is not an alternative for the textbook. Students are responsible for all
the topics covered in the text unless otherwise stated in the class lecture.

## Class Expectations

Students are expected to follow the “Standards of Student Conduct” and “Student Academic
Integrity Policy Statement” for Mission College. Please arrive on time and be present
throughout the entire class. Students are to wait until the end of lecture to leave the room to
minimize class disruptions. Students should not be engaged in personal conversations while
instructor is lecturing. Students must turn off pagers, cell phones, ipods, and any other electronic
devices during class time. Students should also be prepared to discuss any previous assignments.
It is the student’s responsibility to drop the class if he/she no longer decides to attend class. Any
student appearing on the grade roster will receive a grade regardless of whether they are
attending classes or not.

Your final grade will be calculated as follows:

Total points received/Total points possible (650) = % grade

The following grading scale will be used:

A 90-100%
B 80-89%
C 70-79%
D 60-69%
F 0-59%

## Tutoring

Tutoring is available at the math center located in the basement of the Campus Center building
and is highly recommended if you are having difficulties with the assignments. In addition,
computer software and videos are available. There will also be workshops offered during the
semester for this course.
