Meet Your Facilitator My Teaching Philosophy: I earnestly and genuinely trust that anyone can be effective in learning science given the correct learning condition. I despised science for a long time in school. The fear of science began for me in third grade. When I went to the University of Houston, I was still extremely math phobic. I had endeavored arithmetic classes a few circumstances at the University, just to drop the class in dissatisfaction and feeling that my inability to comprehend math was affirmation of me being absolutely scientifically uneducated. At that point I was honored with Dr. Murray . He had a method for bringing math alive, and also, making math justifiable to me!! A long time of math uneasiness and disappointment liquefied away. I attempt to resemble Dr. Murray and help my understudies to the best of my capacities. So never be reluctant to come to me for help  Meet Dr. Murray at: to Table of Contents

Is Online Learning for you? Take this short test to check whether you are readied expertise shrewd to be an online learner. The aptitudes got some information about in this test are abilities you will requirement for our course: The accompanying website is offered by the school to furnish you with important data about web based learning and assets: View the accompanying video instructional exercises for extra help: exercises/stuorient.htm Back to Table of Contents

Course Goals This course is intended to fortify the variable based math aptitudes of understudies looking for Business or Natural Science degrees who are required to take a connected analytics course. Course objectives incorporate the accompanying: Develop the hypothesis of capacities Examine how to diagram capacities Analyze exponential and logarithmic capacities Solve conditions including arithmetical, exponential and logarithmic capacities Solve frameworks of straight conditions Develop the idea of determinants Calculate determinants utilizing Cramer's Rule Formulate the hypothesis of networks Solve applications issues Back to Table of Contents

Slide 7

Learning Objectives Analyze , chart, and assess direct capacities identified with application issues in business and the characteristic sciences . Perform logarithmic operations on capacities and decide work inverses . Examine and decipher the relationship between the properties and diagrams of polynomial capacities . Decide all the correct zeros of a polynomial by applying root-discovering systems and hypotheses . Break down and decipher the charts of mathematical capacities including square root, cubic and balanced capacities . Comprehend and chart non-direct imbalances and frameworks of non-straight disparities. Break down and apply inflexible and non-unbending changes to arithmetical, exponential and logarithmic capacities . Tackle conditions including logarithmic and exponential capacities , including application issues . Perform operations with networks . Build frameworks of conditions from applications.

Evaluation Part 1 A learner's review will be founded on different measures of execution: Homework assignments : Homework as listed in fitting assignments. These will be done on our Web-CT home space. The assignments will be assembled in the exam module areas. Dialog board investment : There will be discourse sheets in every exam module. You should react and take an interest in them. Try not to hold up until the last moment to do these; you should keep up an unfaltering pace in the course. (Evaluating rubric found in dialog board segment of every exam module.) Objective tests: Will quantify an understudy's capacity to distinguish and play out the numerical ideas sketched out in the learning results. (There will be three month to month exams, most minimal one is dropped.) Comprehensive end of the year test. The last, most decisive test must be taken. The reviewing scale is: 90 - 100 = A, 80 - 89 = B, 70 - 79 = C, 60 - 69 = D, 0 - 59 = F. Back to Table of Contents

Evaluation Part 2 Your last course review will be controlled by: Homework Assignment score (15%) will be figured by including your scores, and separating by the aggregate number of assignments, the standard math normal (Highest aggregate normal conceivable is 100 focuses). Dialog board support score (15%) will be figured by including all out focuses, the greatest is 100 focuses. (There will be an aggregate of 10 talk sheets every exchange board is worth 10 focuses for a sum of 100 focuses.) Monthly exams (20% every exam out of two most astounding exams) (every exam is worth 100 focuses) Highest two scores out of the three month to month exams will be utilized as a part of the last grade computation. Henceforth, there are no make-up exams. End of the year test score (30%) (worth 100 focuses) You should take the last test of the year!!! Your recipe to figure your review is: (Homework score)(.15) + (Discussion board score) (.15) + (Monthly exam score)(.2) + (Monthly exam score)(.2) + (Final exam score)(.3) = Numerical review **All evaluated work will be done and submitted in Web-CT** Back to Table of Contents

Course Policies Cheating : If I discover you bamboozling I will take after the methodology that are delineated in Miramar College's understudy handbook. Participation: Since this is an on line course, taking day by day participation is impractical. On the off chance that two weeks of non-movement happen for you, I will keep you out of the framework until I get some sort of message from you. On the off chance that I presume you are not taking an interest, I will drop you!! Review of W: If you choose not to remain in the class without advising me and don't drop yourself by April eleventh, then you will hazard getting a F, in the event that I don't get it. For the previously mentioned strategies , please observe the Miramar College index at Accommodations: Students with incapacities who may require scholarly lodging ought to get in touch with me by email, fax or telephone with in the initial two weeks of class. You and I can facilitate with the Disability Support Programs & Services (DSPS) division to distinguish your suitable lodging. On the off chance that you might want additional data or have inquiries regarding DSPS administrations, please email them at or call them at (858)- 536-7212 or (619)- 388-7312. The workplace is situated in building C-304. Back to Table of Contents

Course Materials and Resources Textbook by Robert Blitzer entitled "School Algebra" fourth release. Arrange it from the book shop at this connection Web-Site: I claim and keep up an individual site at . On here you will discover the notes I have composed for College Algebra and different courses I am instructing. Likewise, you will discover more data and connections. PC LABS: The College has a few PC labs accessible for our understudies to utilize. More data can be found at Hardcover: 832 pages Publisher: Prentice Hall; fourth release (2005) Language: English ISBN-10: 0007570678 ISBN-13: 978-0007570676 Back to Table of Contents
