Department of MathematicsMATH 0891/0892/0893 Learning Support in MathematicsDepartment of MathematicsMATH 0891/0892/0893 Learning Support in MathematicsCredit Hours and Course DescriptionLearning Support in MathematicsA student with mathematics ACT sub score below 19 should enroll in MATH 0891 Learning Support in Mathematics I. Based on the student’s career goals, a set of required modules from the following list will be determined. In the event that the student’s career goals change, the required modules may also be changed.MATH 0891 Learning Support in Mathematics I 3 CREDIT HOURSA student needing to master competencies included in any Module 1 - 12 will register for MATH 0891. The student is expected to complete a minimum of four modules in order to earn a passing grade in this course except if the student needs less than four modules.MATH 0892 Learning Support in Mathematics II 3 CREDIT HOURSA continuation of MATH 0891. Prerequisite: Successful completion of MATH 0891.MATH 0893 Learning Support in Mathematics III 3 CREDIT HOURSA continuation of MATH 0892. Prerequisite: Successful completion of MATH 0892.Modules One, Two, and Three replace the former DSPM 0700 Basic Mathematics.Modules Four, Five, Six, and Seven replace the former DSPM 0800 Elementary Algebra.Modules Eight, Nine, Ten, Eleven, and Twelve replace the former DSPM 0850 Intermediate Algebra.MODULE ONE: INTEGERSTopics include exponential notation and order of operations, integers and the number line, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of integers, order of operations, introduction to algebraic expressions, like terms, and solving one-step equations.MODULE TWO: FRACTIONSTopics include fraction notation, multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction of fractions and mixed numerals and solving equations with applications.MODULE THREE: DECIMALSTopics include decimal notation, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of decimals, solving equations, American and metric units of measure, weight and mass, capacity, time and temperature, ratio and proportion, percent notation, graphs.MODULE FOUR: REAL NUMBERSTopics include introduction to algebra, the real numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of real numbers, properties of real numbers, and order of operations.MODULE FIVE: LINEAR EQUATIONS AND INEQUALITIESTopics include solving linear equations by the addition and multiplication principle, formulas, solving inequalities, ratio/proportion with applications.MODULE SIX: GRAPHING LINEAR EQUATIONS AND INEQUALITIESTopics include graphs of linear equations in two variables, intercepts, slope, equations of lines (one point with slope) and graphing using slope and y-intercept.Revised January 2012MODULE SEVEN: POLYNOMIALSTopics include integers as exponents, scientific notation, and introduction to polynomials, addition, subtraction and multiplication of polynomials, special products, operations with polynomials in several variables, division of polynomials by monomials.MODULE EIGHT: FACTORINGTopics include factoring trinomials, trinomial squares and difference of squares, general strategies forfactoring, solving quadratic equations by factoring.MODULE NINE: RATIONAL EXPRESSIONSTopics include multiplying, dividing, adding, and subtracting rational expressions, simplifying rational expressions, solving rational equations, applications.MODULE TEN: MORE GRAPHING AND SYSTEMSTopics include parallel and perpendicular lines, equations of lines using point-slope, graphing inequalities in two variables, solving systems of equations in two variables using graphing, substitution and elimination methods, applications, and graphing systems of inequalities in two variables.MODULE ELEVEN: RADICAL EXPRESSIONSTopics include radical expressions, multiplying and simplifying radical expressions, quotients involving radical expressions (only 1 term denominators), addition and subtraction, radical equations, applications with right triangles and the distance formula.MODULE TWELVE: QUADRATIC EQUATIONSTopics include the complex numbers, solving quadratic equations by square root method, the quadratic formula, and graphs of quadratic equations, functions, domain and range.Academic and Classroom MisconductSMART Math Students are expected to maintain Academic Honesty in all their work. Collaboration is encouraged on many assignments such as homework and guided study. Tutors are available to assist you with this sort of work. Exams are considered individual work and must be completed without unauthorized assistance of any kind, including help of other students, tutors, or notes. All test material is to be turned in with the test paper. Attempting to bring work out of the testing area and/or share that work with other students is considered cheating. Cheating on tests, misrepresentation of attendance, falsifying records, or lying will result in loss of credit for all work involved.Excerpted from the 2011-2012 Jackson State Community College Catalog and Student Handbook, page 149:- The instructor has the primary responsibility for control of classroom and behavior and maintenance of academic integrity, and can order the temporary removal or exclusion from the classroom any student engaged in disruptive conduct or conduct in violation of the general rules and regulations of the institution. Extended or permanent exclusion from the classroom or further disciplinary action can be effected through appropriate procedures of the institution.- Plagiarism, cheating and other form of academic dishonesty are prohibited. Students guilty of academic misconduct, either directly or indirectly, through participation or assistance, are immediately responsible to the instructor of the class. In addition to other possible disciplinary sanctions, which may be imposed through the regular institutional procedures, as a result of academic misconduct, the instructor has the authority to assign an “F” or a zero for the exercise or examination, or to assign an “F” in the course.- Disruptive behavior in the classroom may be defined as, but is not limited to, behavior that obstruct or disrupts the learning environment (e.g., offensive language, harassment of students and professors, repeated outburst from a student which disrupt the flow of instruction orprevent concentration on the subject that, failure to cooperate in maintaining classroom decorum, etc.), the continued use of electronic orother
