HOMEWORK POLICY:  Students are expected to keep up with daily assignments taken from the Math 111 Assignment Sheet. Homework will be collected at the beginning of each class. The three lowest scores for homework assignments will be dropped at the end of the quarter. Graphing calculator usage will be emphasized throughout the course and Texas Instruments’ TI-82 graphics calculator will be used to illustrate and enhance the solution to many algebraic problems. In order to follow along with the exposition and more completely comprehend the assignments, the TI-82 is recommended.

 

EXAMINATIONS:  There will 3 exams during the quarter and a comprehensive final exam at the end of the qarter.
