TO THE FALL 2009 STUDENT OF COLLEGE ALGEBRA [32352] CONTINUED

SYLLABUS INFORMATION UPDATE 8/24/9:

ASSIGNMENTS and NOTES: Your problem assignments, text notes and class notes are checked during regular test times. Turn in your notebook as you enter the test time and take it with you when you leave the test. Place all material in sequential syllabus order. Seven extra credit points = 3 for completely worked homework exercises + 2 points for textbook notes + 2 points for class notes are given via a quick review of the thoroughness and spot checked for accuracy of your work. These extra credit points will be added to C or higher test points. For each section of material covered place the material in sequential syllabus order in a simple three prong paper folder with no pockets. The upper right corner of each notebook page needs to give the content type IN ORDER: FIRST - Text notes, SECOND - Class notes, then THIRD - Assignment exercises , for the chapter, section number and the date for that page. It would be nice if you put your name on each page also, for ownership or authorship!

CLASS ASSIGNMENT EXTRA CREDIT: You may give yourself one point extra credit on the day's attendance sheet for each homework problem you work on the board. The problem is taken from another student's request listed before the hour of the class. {EXAMPLE: Problem number listed before 2:25 for a 3:00 p.m. class.}

CHANGES: Some additions, substitutions and/or corrections to this syllabus will be made during this course.
