Third Edition, by Elayn Martin-Gay, Pub. Prentice-Hall ISBN: 9780321744531 My Math Lab Course ID: Assistance Assistance for your mathematics classes is provided at the Mathematics Learning Center in room 2223. There, you will find course-related support material, and tutors that will help you to successfully complete this course. You do not need an appointment to get assistance from the tutors, but keep in mind that they cannot work with one student for a prolonged period of time as they must help all students and might have to take turns among them. If you have a problem with the Mathematics Learning Center services, please contact any of its supervisors (Arcides Acosta, Maliya Beylin, Jose De Paz, or Verdieu Lucas) at 305-237-3834 or visit their offices in room 2223. If after speaking with a supervisor the problem persists, then you need to visit the Mathematic Department Chairperson (Miguel Montañez) in room 1540 as the next step. Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus Classroom and Laboratory Etiquette The instructor would like to welcome all students into an environment that creates a sense of community, pride, courtesy and respect; we are all here to work cooperatively and to learn together. In order to create a smooth and harmonious learning environment, please make every attempt to come to all the class sessions, to come to class on time, and to stay until the end of the class session unless you previously have informed your instructor that you must leave early. There might be a time when you unavoidably arrive late for class, we ask you to please come into the classroom quietly (through the back door if there is one) and to seat closest to the entrance. Once the class session has begun, please do not leave the room and then re-enter unless it is an emergency. If you miss a class meeting for any reason, you are responsible for all material discussed, for announcements made in your absence, and for acquiring any materials that may have been distributed in class. You are responsible for contacting the instructor for this information during the instructor’s office hours. You are encouraged to ask questions in class, but that is also important that we are all able to stay focused on the class discussion. For this reason, only one person in the class at a time should be speaking. Side conversations are distracting for surrounding students and for the instructor. Professional behavior is expected at all times. The MDC Students’ Rights and Responsibilities Handbook describes students’ appropriate and inappropriate behaviors, along with their consequences. Additionally, please be aware that cheating, plagiarism, and disruptive behavior are not tolerated and can result in serious consequences such as failure of a course or dismissal from the college. For more information, go to: http://www.mdc.edu/policy/student_rights_and_responsibilities.pdf Beepers, cellular telephones and smart devices must be turned off. The vibrate mode is not considered turned off. Absolutely no text messaging or instant messaging is allowed in the classroom at any time. The instructor may ask you to leave the classroom for the day if you are caught performing these activities. Please refrain from bringing food or drinks into any classroom or the Mathematics Learning Center (room 2223). Office Hours Your professor urges you to avail yourself of his/her individual instruction during office hours. Do not wait until you are in trouble. If you have been absent or late to class, please read the lesson you missed and come to his/her office prepared with questions. Instructor’s office hours are posted on the first page of this syllabus. Problems with the Instructor If you are having a problem with your mathematics instructor, please see that instructor during his/her office hours. Before or after class is generally not a good time to discuss a problem with an instructor who is either about to start class or on the way to the next class. If after speaking with your instructor during his/her office hours you cannot resolve the problem, then you need to visit the Mathematics Department Chairperson (Miguel Montañez) in room 1540 as the next step. Attendance The number one key to educational success is to attend classes. Students are responsible for any work missed when absent. Class attendance will be recorded daily. If you attend less than 50% of the lecture time, you may be considered absent for the day by your instructor. Frequent absences may cause you to be dropped from the course. You should make an effort to always be in class, and on time. Lateness is rude and disruptive. Registration It is your responsibility to make sure that you are registered for this course. Be sure to obtain a copy of your schedule to verify the reference number and that you do not have any outstanding fees. You will not be allowed to take the any exam, specially the final exam, if you are not in your instructor’s class roster so make sure to resolve any issues prior to the exam date.
