TEXT:
Business Mathematics, Custom Edition, by Robert Brechner
MATERIALS:
A basic calculator is strongly recommended
Note: Cell phones cannot be used as a calculator during tests
COURSE OBJECTIVES:
To apply the principles of mathematics to business situations
COURSE APPROACH:
Class time will include discussion of the text material, and
application of mathematical analysis to business situations.

Come to class prepared, chapters read, and assignments done.
Participate in class discussions and presentations.
Take exams when scheduled.
Check with the instructor for missed handouts or assignments.
Check with a fellow student for missed notes.
When in doubt—ASK!!!
HAVE A POSITIVE ATTITUDE; BE MOTIVATED TO LEARN!!!
ATTENDANCE:
1. Students are expected to attend class. If you are unable to attend, then notify the
instructor when possible.
2. YOU are responsible for all missed assignments/lectures when absent. This is your
responsibility, not the instructor’s.
3. In the event of adverse weather conditions (i.e. snow), students are expected to attend class
unless either the SCC campus is closed (Closure will be announced on local radio stations,
KOMO-AM or KIRO-AM are recommended) or if the student determines that travel
conditions are too hazardous. For either situation, the student should refer to #1 and #2
above.
CHEATING & PLAGIARISM:
The working definition of “cheat” and “plagiarism” for the
purposes of this class can be found in Webster’s Ninth Edition New Collegiate Dictionary.
CHEATING on tests in my classes will not be tolerated. Anyone caught cheating will receive
a zero (0) on his/her test and that grade will be averaged into the final grade. The zero will
always be averaged in and cannot count as a low grade in cases where students are allowed
the leeway to discard the lowest test score.
PLAGIARISM is copying another individuals work either verbatim without using quotation
marks and giving credit in a footnote, or using the idea of another individual without giving
credit, (unless the information is general information) even if a few words have been
changed or rearranged. Plagiarism is in effect the theft of another writer’s property. A
paper containing any plagiarized portions will receive a zero (0) and there will be NO
provisions for make-up work.
TESTS:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
Tests must be taken on the scheduled day. A student that misses a test will earn a
score of “0” for that test.
All tests will be taken individually, in-class.
Tests that are canceled by campus closure will be made up on the first class day
returning from the closure.
Four (4) unit tests and one (1) Final Test Packet will be given in this class.
The lowest unit test score will be discarded when calculating your grade.
Each student must complete the final examination prior to credit for the class being
granted (SCC Policy #5120).
Tests cover material discussed in class and from reading assignments.
