Textbook: A Survey of Mathematics with Applications, 7th edition by
Angel, Abbott, and Runde,
Suggested textbook homework:
Below is a list of suggested textbook homework problems from each section that
will be covered in class. The problems listed after the “//” can be done if you feel
you need some more practice on a particular topic. Similar problems to these are
contained in the required online homework. Each day the first part of class will be
spent discussing student questions about the homework assignment, and you may
be asked to work out some of the problems at the board. Agreeing to do so will
earn you 2 points if the work is correct, one point if you try and are partially
correct, but you will lose a point if you refuse to try.

Sample Syllabus:
2007 Spring Session
Instructor: Lee Graubner E-mail: [email protected] 407-582-2381
Web page for additional information: http://faculty.valencia.cc.fl.us/lgraubner/
Office: 1-332 (Hours: MW 2:30pm-4:00pm, TR 10:00am-12:00pm, F 8:30am-11:30am)
My one College Mathematics class meets in room 2-110.
CRN 23860: Mon and Wed 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm
Course Description: Topics in College Mathematics include systematic counting,
probability, statistics, geometry, sets, logic, and the history of mathematics. The
prerequisite for this course is a minimum grade of C in MAT 1033C or MAC 1105 or an
appropriate score on an approved assessment, or department approval. This course
qualifies as a Gordon Rule course, and a minimum grade of C is required if this course
is used to satisfy the Gordon Rule and general education requirements. This course is
not a prerequisite for any other mathematics courses. Credit may not be given for both
MGF 1106 and MGF 2106 nor for MGF 1106 and MGF 2202.
CLAST Competencies: The College-Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST) measures
the following: reading skills, essay skill, English language skills, and mathematics skills.
To the extent possible, you will be encouraged to develop these skills as part of your
work in this course. Additional information is available in the College Catalog at
(http://valenciacc.edu/catalog).
Valencia Core Competencies: The Valencia faculty has defined four interrelating
competencies (Think, Value, Communicate, Act) that prepare students to succeed in
the world community. These competencies are outlined in the College Catalog. In this
course, through classroom lecture and discussion, group work, and other learning
information is available in the College Catalog at (http://valenciacc.edu/catalog).
Text: A Survey of Mathematics with Applications by Angel, Abbott, and Runde, 7th
Edition
Calculator: A graphing or scientific calculator will be useful in this course to assist with
decimal calculations and some numerical manipulations. A TI-83 or TI-83 Plus is
recommended and is what your instructor will use for demonstrations. Other TI models
and other manufactured brands are acceptable as well, but may not follow the same
keystrokes.
Other Resources: A Student Solutions Manual can be purchased in the bookstore but
is not required. There is no lab assigned to this course so you are not required to
purchase a lab manual. An online tutorial “MyMathLab” has been provided with your
new text book and will be used to assign homework problems (see page 3 for details).
Tutors are available for walk-in help in Bldg 4, IMC. A notebook is recommended to
hold notes and assignments. Graph paper may be found to be helpful as well as a
straightedge for drawing lines. Videotapes presenting an overview of each chapter are
also available in the IMC. A pack of 3x5 note cards is required for in class quizzes and
activities.
Attendance Policy: Students are expected to attend all classes and keep up with
assignments. You are responsible for all material discussed in class, as well as
changes in assignments, exam dates, etc. Arriving late to class or leaving early is
disruptive to the instructor and to other students. Cell phones and beepers should be
turned off prior to entering the classroom as a courtesy to others. Problems in any of
expected.
Course Outline: This course will cover material from the chapters and sections listed
below and will follow the attached tentative daily schedule.
Chapter 2 (2.1 – 2.5)
Chapter 3 (3.2 – 3.6)
Chapter 9 (9.1 – 9.4)
Chapter 12 (12.1 – 12.10)
Chapter 13 (13.1 – 13.7)
Homework Policy: Included in this syllabus is a tentative schedule of each week’s
planned material with specific test dates and a suggested list of homework problems. It
is highly recommended that a sufficient number of homework problems be completed to
ensure understanding of the course content. This textbook homework will not be
collected or used to determine your final grade. Selected homework problems will be
chosen for in class assignments and activities and will be collected and used to
the next page.
Grading Policy: There will be no make up tests given. If you miss a chapter test, the
grade you receive on the final exam will count as that test score and as your final exam
score. If you do not miss any chapter tests, your final exam score, if it is higher, can
replace your lowest chapter test score. Quizzes will be given on a random,
unannounced basis, to determine and/or encourage your progress. Be sure to have a
3x5 note card with you each day for this purpose. Missed quizzes or assignments may
Grading will be done on a point basis with a final grade of A ≥ 90% of the total possible
points, B = [80-90)% of total, C = [70-80)% of total, D = [60-70)% of total, and F < 60%
of total. Points can be accumulated as follows:
Five chapter tests @ 100 points each = 500 total possible
One comprehensive final @ 100 points each = 100 total possible
Online homework @ 100 points = 100 total points
Additional assignments (quizzes, class work, projects) = 200 points possible
Grand total planned = 900 points
Honesty Policy: All forms of academic dishonesty are prohibited at Valencia.
Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, plagiarism, cheating, furnishing
false information, forgery, alteration or misuse of documents, misconduct during a
testing situation, and misuse of identification with intent to defraud or deceive.
Sanctions available to the professor should a violation occur are described in the
Valencia Student Handbook or online at http://valencia.cc.fl.us/policies/PDF/10-16.pdf.
Either giving or receiving aid on a test or final exam will result in a zero for that grade.
Withdrawal Policy: The College has initiated withdrawal procedures and timelines in
response to legislation/rules adopted by the state legislature and State Board of
Community Colleges. The deadline to withdraw from this course is in the current
catalog, and is also available online at http://valenciacc.edu. After that date (March 23,
2007), if you withdraw or are withdrawn from the course, you will be assigned either a
“WP” (withdrawn passing) or a “WF” (withdrawn failing). Additional information is
available in the College Catalog at (http://valenciacc.edu/catalog/04-05/default.htm on
pages 62 - 65).
In addition, a maximum of four class absences (full or partial) is allowed prior to your
being withdrawn by the instructor. Arriving late, leaving early, or sleeping in class will
be counted as ½ absence, so plan ahead if you have a scheduled appointment or
expected absence, or need a nap.
Disclaimer: This syllabus and the related course schedule may be changed at the
discretion of the instructor.
Students with Disabilities: Students with disabilities who qualify for academic
accommodations must provide a notification from the Office for Students with
Disabilities (OSD) and discuss specific needs with the instructor, preferably during the
first two weeks of class. The Office for Students with Disabilities determines
accommodations based on appropriate documentation of disabilities. The East Campus
Office is located in Building 5, Room 216.
Student Code of Classroom Conduct: Valencia’s Student Code of Classroom
Conduct (Policy 10-18) can be found in the current Student handbook, or online at
http://valencia.cc.fl.us/policies/policydetail2.cfm?PolicyCatID=10&PolicyID=18
On-line homework Instructions: There is an online homework assignment for each
section covered in this course. Each homework section must be completed by the date
indicated on the attached schedule. The percentage of homework completed will count
towards 100 points of your final grade. All of the homework assignments can be found
by first logging into your course in MyMathLab, clicking on Spring 2007 MGF 1106, then
click on Do Homework on the left hand side, and select the section you want to work on
and do the exercises. When you are finished make sure to click on Submit Homework.
You may submit the homework as many times as you like until the deadline date.
Therefore, you can work on the homework until you get a perfect score. Every time you
be assessed by clicking on Gradebook on the left hand side.
