Precalculus by Paul Sisson.


Prerequisites:
A grade of "C" or higher in MATH 1111 or Placement
by the Mathematics Assessment Test

Technology:
Students will be restricted to using a device belonging to the TI-83/TI-84 pool of calculators. The required calculator is the only calculator that may be used on tests and the final exam.  You may NOT share calculators during quizzes or exams. The use of cell phones, pagers, text or other messaging devices is not allowed during class.

Course objectives:
Rational and transcendental functions and graphs. Triangle and analytic trigonometry including identities, equations, and applications. Law of Sines, Law of Cosines, applications of trigonometry to vectors and complex numbers. Systems of equations using matrices. A grade of C or better is required for course credit.

Upon completing this course students should be able to:

1. Apply the principles of trigonometry to the solution of equations and verification of identities.

2. Sketch the graphs of the trigonometric functions.

3. Identify the basic properties of vectors.

4. Use matrix properties to solve systems of linear equations.


Homework, Quizzes and Examinations:
Homework will be assigned daily, but will not be collected without advance warning. Questions on homework problems can be answered in Office Hours and/or in class. Quizzes will occur frequently, and occasionally without warning. Quiz questions will typically come from homework problems. There will be four in-class examinations, and a final

Grading Policy:
In-class examinations will be valued at 15% each, quizzes will total to 15%, and the final will be valued at 25%.
A 90% or greater average will be awarded A
An 80% or greater average will be awarded B
A 70% or greater average will be awarded C
A 60% or greater average will be awarded D

Honesty:
Be sure you read the relevant section and know and understand the potential penalties in the University Academic Regulations in the current undergraduate catalog or on the campus web site. If you are caught cheating, you will receive a grade of zero for that assignment, and you may be asked to leave the class.
SPSU has an Honor Code and a new procedure relating to when academic misconduct is alleged. All students should be aware of them. Information about the Honor Code and the misconduct procedure may be found at http://spsu.edu/honorcode/

Absence:
If I am contacted with an acceptable excuse before the date of the quiz or exam, then a makeup can be arranged. An acceptable excuse is in writing, contains the student's name, the date of the absence, a signature from a faculty member sponsoring the trip, contact information for the faculty member, and a brief mention of the nature of the trip.

Special needs:
I will attempt to accommodate all students with special needs to the best of my ability, but it is the responsibility of the student to make their needs known to me. Students with disabilities who believe they may need accommodations in this class are encouraged to contact the counselor working with disabilities at 678-915-7244 as soon as possible to better assure that such accommodations are implemented in a timely fashion.

Assistance:
For help with your homework, or questions about the lectures, you have a lot of options. I will take a limited number of questions during class, as time permits. I am available in my office for help during my posted office hours, and any unscheduled time my door is open. For additional help, there are campus-wide resources I will announce as soon as I have the details.
