Stand alone text without MyMath Lab 0-321-55717-4You can access the material from the first two weeks online at http://www.austincc.edu/mthdept2/text/ password: acc0370MyMathLab access: In some sections of Elementary Algebra, MyMathLab is required, and in others it is optional. Check with your instructor to find out if it is required for your section. All new textbooks purchased at an ACC bookstore include MyMathLab access. It (delete: is) may not be included with the purchase of a used book, and may not be included with a new book purchased at a different bookstore. Refer to the handout Information about MyMathLab.Supplemental Materials: Rectangular coordinate graphing paper, Scientific calculatorCourse Rationale: Welcome to Elementary Algebra. As with all developmental math courses, Elementary Algebra is designed to provide you with the mathematical foundation and personal confidence to enable you to use mathematics in your future life. This course is designed to prepare you for MATD 0390 (Intermediate Algebra) and the algebra-based courses that follow itor for MATD 0385. It also offers you one way to prepare for MATH 1332 (College Math, formerly Topics in Math), MATH 1342 (Elementary Statistics), and MATH 1333 (Math for Measurement) after you have passed the math portion of the state-approved test, like THEA or TCOMPASS.Course Description (MATD 0370 Elementary Algebra): A course designed to develop the skills and understanding contained in the first year of secondary school algebra. Topics include review of operations on real numbers, graphing linear equations, solving linear and quadratic equations, solving systems of linear equations, polynomials, factoring, and applications.Course Objectives: Instructors must include all of these, not just a link to them, in the First Day Handout for students. They are posted at http://www.austincc.edu/mthdept2/tfcourses/obj0370.htm . Instructional Methodology: This course is taught in the classroom as a lecture/discussion course.Attendance: Attendance is required in this course. Students who have excessive absences may be withdrawn. TSI-mandated students who have excessive absences will be withdrawn.58MATD 0370, Elementary Algebra, 2011-2012First Day Handout for Students TSI Warning for students who are not TSI complete** Students who are not TSI complete in math are not allowed to enroll in any course with a math skill requirement.All students are required to be "continually in attendance" in order to remain enrolled in this course. If this is the only developmental class you are enrolled in, and you withdraw yourself from this course or are withdrawn by your instructor, then:a) You may be withdrawn from courses that you should not be enrolled in, such as any class with a math skill requirement.b) You will have a hold placed on your registration for the following semester. The Hold will require that you register for the next semester in person with an advisor or counselor and that you work with the Developmental Math Advisor during that semester.c) You will continue to face more serious consequences, up to being restricted to only registering for developmental courses, until you complete the required developmental math course or satisfy the TSI requirement in another way.More information can be found at http://www.austincc.edu/math/tsiwarning.htm.** If you are unsure whether or not this warning applies to you, see an ACC advisor immediately. Importance of Completing Developmental Course RequirementsThe first steps to achieving any college academic goal are completing developmental course requirements and TSI requirements. The first priority for students who are required to take developmental courses must be the developmental courses. TSI rules state that students are allowed to take college credit courses, if they are fulfilling their developmental requirements.Because successful completion of developmental courses is so important, ACC will intervene with any student who is not successfully completing developmental requirements. This intervention can mean a hold on records, requiring developmental lab classes, working with the Dev Math Advisor, and monitoring during the semester. Additional information about ACC's mathematics curriculum and faculty is available on theInternet at http://www.austincc.edu/math/ Withdrawal Policy: It is the student's responsibility to initiate all withdrawals in this course. The instructor may withdraw students for excessive absences but makes no commitment to do this for thestudent. After the withdrawal date, neither the student nor the instructor may initiate a withdrawal. TSI-mandated students with excessive unexcused absences will be withdrawn. The withdrawal deadline is ___________________.59MATD 0370, Elementary Algebra, 2011-2012First Day Handout for Students Reinstatement Policy: Students who withdrew or were withdrawn generally will not be reinstated unless they have completed all course work, projects, and tests necessary to place them at the same level of course completion as the rest of the class.Incomplete grades (I) are given only in very rare circumstances. To qualify for an "I", a student must have completed almost all exams and assignments, have a passing grade, and have a documented serious situation occur that prevents course completion after the withdrawal deadline.In Progress grades (IP) are also rarely given. In order to earn an "IP" grade the student must remain in the course, be making progress in
