COLLEGE ALGEBREA
4 Credit Hours
Instructor: A. J. Silva Work Phone: 455-6000
Location: Pajuta Haka E-mail: asilva@olc.edu
Time & day: Tuesday and Thursday, 10:00 pm to Noon Office hours: By appointment
Course Description: This course prepares the student for Calculus I and other upper level math classes. Topics include functions and their graphs, including polynomial and rational function, exponential and logarithmic functions. Absolute value equations and inequalities; compound inequalities, systems of second degree equation; conic sections: matrices and determinants as well as mathematical induction the Binomial theorem are included.
Course Objectives: Students leaving this course will have an excellent foundation in the college algebra with an emphasis on word problems. Their skills will enable them to move forward in their math education at Oglala Lakota College or any other institution of higher learning. Upon successful completion of this class, students should be able to:
Apply the quadratic formula to solve polynomial equations
Determine the domain and range of functions
Transform and find the inverse of functions
Evaluate higher degree functions
Evaluate and graph rational functions
Evaluate and graph exponential and logarithmic functions
Solve systems of equations using substitution and eliminations methods
Perform basic operations on matrixes.
Prerequisite: Math 134, Intermediate Algebra with a grade of C or better, or an acceptable score on the Math Placement.
Required Text: College Algebra. Larson, Hostetler, and Hodgkins
Reading Level: Students will be expected to read all sections covered in lectures before coming to class. The reading level of the text is Grade 10 as computed using the Fry Readability Index.
Required Materials: Scientific calculator, graphing paper, portfolio binder, ruler, and pencils. You must bring these materials to each class!
Writing Expectations: Exams, quizzes, and assignments will contain application problems. All application problems require a well structured written sentence(s) for each application problem.
Lakota Perspective: The Lakota perspective will be provided by way of daily interaction between student and instructor where traditional Lakota values such as naci taka (patience), waohola (respect), and ohola (honor) will be maintained. The student will be expected to aid the instructor with the inclusion of the Lakota perspective.
REQUIREMENTS FOR SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THIS CLASS:
Oyanka (literally: to be, such as to be present or attendance) Requirements: Students are required to attend class.
The oyanka requirement will follow OLCs policy. At the discretion of the instructor, center staff, and/or the Registrar, a student may be dropped from a course after three consecutive absences or after five total absences. In the event that a student is withdrawn from the class by district staff or the Registrar, the instructor will not reinstate the student to the class.
Although the instructor may drop a student for non-attendance, do not assume the instructor will drop you for non-attendance If the student decides he/she is not going to finish the class and quits attending class without going through the college class withdrawal procedure, he/she may receive an F for the class. If you do not withdraw from the class by the time grades are due to the Registrars office, the instructor will report your grade to the registrars office. Again, It is the students responsibility to drop the class if he/she quits attending class.
Disruption of Class: Students disrupt the class by leaving the classroom while the lecture or discussion is in progress. At your age, unless you are ill, you should be able to wait until break to use the restroom. Turn off cell phones before you come to class.
Student Portfolios: All students are required to maintain portfolio in a three-ring binder. The portfolio should contain syllabus, exams, notes, in-class handouts, and completed assignments. As a rule, portfolios are not submitted or reviewed by the instructor they are for the students benefit. However, in the event of an unusual circumstance where the instructor is asked to wave one of the provisions of this syllabus, the instructor will ask to view the students portfolios prior to making a decision. Students should not expect any consideration or break from the instructor if they have not maintained a complete portfolio.
Assignments: Be prepared to spend approximately 2 to 3 hours of study time for each hour spent in the class. Students may choose to do the assignments or choose not to the assignments. For those students who choose to do the assignments keep all assignments in the portfolio. This may help you if you require some special consideration on the part of the instructor (see above).
Examinations: Examinations will be given periodically during the semester - usually after completing each chapter in the text. Except for the final examination, one scheduled make-up exam will be given following the regularly scheduled exam. The make-up exam will be given within two weeks of the initial exam. Make-up exams will not be given during class time. Rather, make up exams will be given at a time and location determined by the instructor. Students taking pictel classes may have to travel to a distant center to take the make-up exam. Students who wish to re-take an exam may take the make-up exam and have an opportunity to improve their initial test grade. The instructor shall determine the weight given to a re-take exam when determining final grades. ONLY ONE MAKE-UP EXAM WILL BE GIVEN FOR EACH REGAULARLY SCHEDULED EXAM. STUDENTS WHO MISS THE INTIAL EXAM AND THE MAKE-UP EXAM WILL RECEIVE A ZERO SCORE FOR THAT EXAM.
Grading
Your grade will be determined based on exam scores and classwork. Chapter exams will comprise 75% of the total course score. Classwork will comprise 25% of the final course score.
Grades will be given as follows:
90 to 100% = A 60 to 69.9% = D
80 to 89.9% = B Below 60% = F
70 to 79.9% = C
Departmental Final Exam: In order to insure that students have obtained the basic knowledge and mathematics skills taught in College Algebra as outlined in the course syllabus, and to insure students are minimally prepared to advance to the next math sequence class, a minimum grade of 60% is required on the Departmental Final Exam in order to pass this course with a grade of D or better..
Grading criteria the Math/Science Department has established for this course.
For students scoring 70 100% on the Comprehensive Final Exam: the student will receive a grade of C, B, or A based on the students performance in class as determined by the instructor.
For students scoring 60 69% on the Comprehensive Final Exam: The student will receive a grade of D or C based on the students performance in class as determined by the instructor.
For students scoring below 60% on the Comprehensive Final Exam: the student must repeat the course or withdraw to avoid a failing grade. Students will also have the opportunity to test-out of this math class at a later date. Keep in mind the test-out requires 80% proficiency.
The criteria was established by the Math/Science Department to ensure the student has achieved mastery of basic concepts at the College Algebra level and the student has a reasonable chance to succeed in the math class following this in the math class sequence.
No make up exam will be given following the departmental final exam. Students who miss the final exam will receive a grade of zero for that exam and will not receive a passing grade for the course
Policy of Cheating and Plagiarism: Guidelines for plagiarism will be closely followed in this course
This program is designed to provide you with the greatest opportunities to learn and to apply what you learn to the needs of your organization. Part of this learning process includes the review and integration of the work of others with your thoughts and ideas. In this process, there is no room for plagiarism, which robs you of meaningful learning and is unfair to the original author. Plagiarism is an ethical violation that is not tolerated at OLC. Oglala Lakota College faculty and staff are fully aware of the many online resources that are now available, and we encourage you to focus on learning rather than the inappropriate use of another person's work without proper citation. You are responsible for understanding plagiarism. If you have questions or comments about plagiarism, how to most effectively learn in this course, or other issues, do not hesitate to contact your instructor, an academic advisor, or the program director.
