Intermediate Algebra, Angel (required)

MAT 104 is a course designed for students who have successfully completed a first course in elementary
algebra, or who have passes MAT 100. We will cover solutions to equations and inequalities, graphs and
functions, polynomial equations and inequalities, exponents and radicals, and quadradic equations.

There will be two in-class exams as well as a final cumulative exam. The exams will test your ability
to work through some of the computations, as well as your ability to apply the techniques to certain
applications. The first exam is scheduled for Friday, September 29 and will count for 20 percent of your
final grade. The second exam is scheduled for Friday, November 3 and will count for 20 percent of your
final grade. The final exam will be held on Thursday, December 14 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The
final will count for 20 percent of your final grade. There will be NO make-ups for missed exams. Please
look over your schedule as soon as possible. If you see a potential conflict, inform me immediately.

The best way to learn Mathematics is to solve problems. Homework will be assigned at the end of
each class period and collected the following class period. I will choose 4 or 5 problems to grade in each
assignment. To earn full credit for a problem, a complete solution to the problem must be submitted.
Just writing down the answer will not earn full credit. In addition to points for each graded problem,
5 points on each assignment will count for completeness and neatness of the graded assignment. Late
assignments will not be graded, but they will be eligible for the 5 completion points. If you are not in
class the day an assignment is collected, you may turn in your assignment into my office later that day.
However, your assignment will be considered late. The homework is designed to help you identify where
you might have difficulties. If you encounter any trouble with an assignment or a concept, seek help!
The homework will count for 20% of your final grade.

Every other Friday, starting with January 27th, we will have an in-class quiz. There will be a total
of 6 quizzes throughout the semester. You should treat the quizzes as mini-exams, covering material
from approximately 6 days worth of course work. The quizzes will consists of 4 or 5 problems similar
to problems from your graded homework, and they are to make sure that you are keeping up with the
concepts presented in class, and to identify where you are having problems before you take the exams.
The quizzes will count for 20% of your final grade.

Attendance in MAT 104 is extremely important. Although there is no offcial attendance policy, note
that if you are not in class on a particular day, your homework will not be graded for a score. I will also
require that you be in class at 10:30 a.m. and no later. If you are late to class, you may stay to enjoy
the wonderful learning experience. But your homework grade will suffer.

Your grade in this course will be based on three main factors: homework, quizzes and exams. The
homework will be worth 20% of your final grade, the quizzes 20%, and the exams 60%. In addition
to these factors, minor ethereal factors such attendance, class participation, attitude, and improvement
over the course of the semester can also affect your grade. To determine your final grade, 90-100% =
A, 80-89% = B, 70-79% = C, 60-69% = D, 59 and below = F, with the top two percents receiving a +
and the bottom two percents receiving a -.

The use of calculators will not be allowed on any quizzes or exams. None of the work will require any
sophisticated computations. You may use a calculator when working on your homework to check your
work. However, since will not be allowed to use it on the exam, I suggest you do as much work without
your calculator as possible.
