Elayn Martin-Gay (Student edition) enhanced with My Math Lab published by Prentice Hall.E--MAIL: [email protected]: (818) 677-2231Office hours: M-T-TH (BH, 400) 11:00-11:50 a.m.Website: www.csun.edu/~mr31841Course ID: rashidian29521 My teaching philosophy focuses on meeting your needs during this course by providing a stimulating environment, building self-steam, open communication, and practicing a blend of independent and cooperative learning style. Attendance:- On time attendance and class participation are essential to succeed in this class. If you miss class, you are responsible for the material covered and the assignment made during the missed time. It is your responsibility to attend class regularly, arrive on time, and be prepared for the class period. On the rare occasion that you are late to class, enter the room quietly and find the seat nearest the door.Homework:- Exercises and reading questions will be a mixture of traditional and online homework. You will use MyMathLab as an interactive website where you can work on your online assignments. It is your responsibility to have all of the problems correctly completed by the following class meeting. Before the lecture, you may ask question regarding the homework exercises. Late homework will not be graded and will be counted as ZERO. No make-up homework.MyMathLab:- You will receive with your textbook a code to an online website http://www.coursecompass.com where you can complete homework assignments, complete practice exams, watch videos explaining how to do problems, see example problems worked out through computer animations, read the textbook online with direct links to practice problems, get connected with tutors over the phone and much, much more.Group work - Group problem solving is the primary method of instruction for this class. - You will work in groups of 3 to 5 each class meeting on an assignment. - At the end of the class all of the papers will be collected, but only one paper from each group will be graded. - Every one in the group received that score. Each group work assignment is worth five points.- If you have to leave class early, you will receive a zero point for that day’s work. - You must work in a group of 3 to 5, or your paper will not be graded. - Group work cannot be made–up. - I reserve the right to break up groups for any reason.Exams and Quizzes- There will be 5 tests and one midterm and a comprehensive final exam. (Make up exams will be given under strict circumstances)- Quizzes will be given on Thursdays (excepted test day). No make- up quizzes will be given.Classroom Etiquette and Participation:- Cell phones, pagers and music players must be turned off during class at all times. Phonescannot be used during class (even as a calculator to check your answer). If a cell phone goes off during class, there will be an immediate pop-quiz. If your phone goes off during an exam, you will automatically lose 10% from the grade on that test. The questions should be addressed to me not to your classmates while lecture is in progress. There is a zero tolerance policy for disrespectful or disruptive behavior. - Neither food nor drink is allowed in the classroom with the exception of bottled water.- Any instance of cheating will be dealt with in accordance with CSUN policies. You are expected to adhere to the Regulations and Policies listed in the CSUN Catalog. - No guests are allowed in class. Academic AssistanceHere are some ideas that I have found help students do better in this class. Homework- Form a study group with your classmates and start homework as soon as possible.- Do homework everyday, even on weekends. Study Tips- Study every day for 1 -- 2 hours in a quiet room at home or in the library.- Review problems that were the most difficult and practice weak areas.- Read the textbook and create flash cards if needed.- Write outlines of each chapter including formulas and processes that you need to solveproblems. Note-taking- Select colored pens or pencils too Sketch a box around definitions, formulas or important concept.o Write a reminder note about a key-steps within a problem (works well on homework
