Algebra – Functions and Authentic Applications ; by Jay Lehmann
Course Description: This course reviews introductory algebraic concepts, and includes the
study of real numbers, the solutions ad applications of linear equations and
inequalities as well as systems of linear equations, and introduces coordinate
graphing of linear equations, factoring techniques, and simplification of
rational and radical expressions, and the solution of quadratic equations.
Be prepared to work: In other words, please
bring a pencil or pen with NOTES (that have been given to you in class or
printed from the MATH 73 website). One copy will be given to you. If you are
absent or late, please make sure you print the notes BEFORE coming to class. Class notes can be found on MyMathLab.
DAYS, please bring all necessary material: pencil, eraser, CALCULATOR. You will not
be allowed to share materials during exams
Do not talk unnecessarily in class, BUT do ask questions and participate in
Turn off all cellular phones before entering the
classroom and DO NOT make phone calls in the classroom. YES …. Even if I’m not
lecturing. Step outside the classroom to make important calls
Please be ON-TIME.
Excessive tardiness disrupts the classroom. If you disrupt my classroom, a
report will be filed with the division Mathematical Sciences as well as with
Attendance: Students are expected to attend classes regularly. Students whose absences exceed 10% of the
scheduled class meeting time may be dropped by the instructor. *
*The Attendance Policy as stated in the Catalog is as follows: Students whose absences exceed 10% of the
scheduled class meeting time may be dropped by the instructor (for a 3 or 4
unit course – 10% is approximately 3 classes).
However, students are responsible for dropping a class within the
deadlines published in the class schedule.
Regular attendance is
essential for success in this class and is a requirement to remain enrolled.
absence and tardiness may lead to being dropped from class. If you are absent 5
classes, you may be dropped from the class. Excessive tardiness is NOT ok.
you are late to class, it will be counted as ½ of an absent.
you stop attending class or wish to drop the class, you must drop the class
yourself officially by phone, internet or in person.
to do so may result in a grade of “F” in the class.
Students are responsible for all announcements and
activities done in class regardless of their presence. It is a good idea to
exchange phone numbers with a few trusted fellow classmates in case you are
absent from class. This also includes handouts given in class. If you are absent,
please do NOT ask for notes or activities during class or minutes before class.
