Required
Materials
2. Calculator:
A graphing calculator is required. Available at Math Center and rentable at
TCC Library. Calculators that do symbolic algebra, such as TI 89, TI 92,
HP 48, etc. are not allowed. Cell phones cannot be used as calculators.
(See Using Calculator Handout on website)
3. A Notebook: Syllabus, notes, homework, quizzes, tests, and any other class handouts need
to be with you in class at all times. The notebook is to contain material
related to this class only. This protects your grades.
4. Pencil, Eraser & Stapler: All work must be done in pencil. Work must be neat so being
able to erase is essential. If turning in more than one page, make sure to have
it stapled. Only turn in college level work
5. ID: A photo ID is required for tests and the final exam.
In order to remain in this course, the student must have met one of the following two criteria:
i) taken the TCC course MAC2311 with a grade of C or better,
ii) taken a course equivalent to MAC2311 (Calculus I for science majors, 5 semester hours)
at another college with a grade of C or better.
Prerequisite
THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THE ABOVE PREREQUISITE POLICY.
Final Exam Final exam is on Tuesday, April 29 from 5:30-7:30pm. Photo ID Required. Counts 25% .
The final exam can replace the lowest test grade if all allowed test corrections were submitted.
Quizzes
Tests
Quizzes are individual test questions and so will be part of your test grade. Expect a quiz every
class day. Attendance bucks may be used to make up or re-take a quiz during office hours.
You have exactly one week to make up a quiz. You may be asked to turn in homework as 30%
of the quiz grade.
There will be a total of five tests. The test dates are Mon. Jan. 27, Mon. Feb. 17, Thurs.
March 6, Mon. April 7, and Mon. April 21. You have exactly one week to make up a test. I
take the same amount of time to grade your tests. Only one make up test is allowed if the
student has current good standing in the class, a valid reason, and proof (valid reason is
determined by me as well as loss in points). Photo ID Required.
Homework will be assigned on a daily basis (see Homework Sheet on website). I suggest you
work on some homework every day of the week in order to be ready for class quizzes, start each
section the minute I start covering it in class (use the pacing schedule as a guide).
Homework
Bring all completed homework to class and be ready to turn in when requested.
Completing your homework is essential to succeeding in this class.
The website will give you a great indication on the sections being covered and in what order.
Absence is not an excuse for not having your homework neatly completed by due date. Better
safe than sorry, so cover more homework if not sure. You have many resources like book, class
mate notes, office hours, and the learning commons that can assist you in doing so.

W Deadline The last day to withdraw is March 27. You may withdraw online or at the Registrar’s Office.

Academic
Integrity
Policies
You are expected to do your own work on exams taken in class. Providing information to
another student or receiving information concerning exam content is considered cheating and
will NOT be tolerated. If this should occur, disciplinary action will take place in one of the
following forms: a zero for the test, being dropped from the course, suspension, or expulsion
from school.
Disrespectful behavior toward anyone in the classroom such as tardiness, disruptive talking, cell
phone usage, smoking, etc. is not acceptable. Please place all trash in the appropriate container.
Completing and understanding your homework and quizzes is the best way to study for tests.
An academic matured student corrects all homework, quizzes, and tests in order to understand
the material better with or without being told to do so.
Other
TIPS
Study for a quiz as it was a test, study for tests as if it was a final, and never give up!!
Be neat, be ready, and be prepared!
WARNING: The two top deadly killers for college students are absences and procrastination.
Overcome these and you will surprise yourself how much simpler it is to go through college.
Any TCC student, who is having trouble deciding on their major or focusing on school for
whatever reason, should talk to their professors and/or make an appointment with a Student
Success Counselor on the 2nd floor of Student Union ASAP. Do not let time pass for unsolved
issues can escalate.
BE AWARE: Students are no longer required to earn a GPA of 2.5 or higher in your collegelevel mathematics courses. Completing both math classes with a C is sufficient to earn an AA
degree. The new placement test is called the FPERT.
