Course goals


Course Topics (Chapters 12-16)


Attendance: You are to be in class and to be there on time. Cooperative learning is more effective and more fun than struggling through material on your own. If you do miss a lecture, it is your responsibility to obtain the material that you missed and to get your assignments handed in to me.


Questions: If you have a question during lecture, please raise your hand and ask it right away. Chances are that other students are wondering the same thing. If a question arises later, feel free to visit my office and we'll work through sample problems until you are comfortable with the mathematics.  Always feel free to ask me to slow down as well.


Grading:  Your course grade will be based on three in-class exams (best two exams 20% each, 10% for the third), homework (20%), and the final exam (30%).

Inclusion and Accessibility
I strive to make all my courses welcoming to all students. I am happy to discuss your learning needs and strategies to best support your academic success. If you have a documented disability that requires accommodations, please register with Accessibility Services at the college, and contact me to let me know what accommodations you will need for this course. Whenever possible, please give me at least two weeks advance notice to implement these accommodations.
