There is a required syllabus acceptance form that you must take in ANGEL to continue with this class. ATTENDANCE SPC requires instructors to record student attendance during each scheduled class. Because this class meets two (2) times per week, you may accrue up to four (4) unexcused absences before exceeding the maximum number of absences allowed. If you exceed the maximum number of unexcused absences, you will either be administratively withdrawn with a grade of W if this occurs before the 60 percent point in the term, or a grade of WF if it occurs later in the term. If you are in your third attempt at completing this course, you will be given a WF grade at any point that you exceed the maximum number of unexcused absences. Note: The last day that a student may elect to withdraw with a course grade of "W" is Thursday, October 29, 2009.

Class Conduct: Habitual tardiness disrupts the class; please make every effort to be punctual. Cell phones and beepers disrupt the class; please turn them off during class. Leaving class during lectures or tests disrupts the class; please make every effort to remain in class for the whole period. Further information is found in Academic Honesty and Behavior: Expectations of Students brochure or online at http://www.spjc.edu/webcentral/admit/honesty.htm

HOMEWORK Homework is probably the most important activity in the course in terms of helping you internalize the material. It also provides a basis for the following day's discussion. You are expected to complete the homework either in the text book or on MyMathLab. TESTS This course covers Chapters 1 through 8.5. There will be 5 tests each worth 50 points and a final worth 100 points. You have only one opportunity to make up or redo a test during the semester. The make up test needs to be completed within one week of the original test date. Any missed test thereafter will be a "0" grade. Arrange your schedule so you do not miss the scheduled tests. Each test is preparing you to take the final so it is important for you to take all tests. Grades will be based on a straight scale: Extra credit assignments may be given out during the semester.

A = (100 90) B = (<90 80) C = (<80 70) D = (<70 60) F = (<60 0)

OTHER HELPFUL INFORMATION Calculators: Graphing and/or programmable calculators are allowed on homework, in class, but not on in-class tests.

You will need for your tests a SCANTRONS, Form No. 882-E. Electronics Policy: Cell phone etiquette must be observed.

SYLLABUS ADDENDUM , 04-August-2009 For Latest Updated Addendum go to URL http://www.spcollege.edu/webcentral/policies.htm

IMPORTANT COLLEGE POLICY REGARDING COURSE DROP ADD PERIOD AND AUDIT INFORMATION

Students CANNOT add a course following the 1st day the class meets. Students CAN drop a course during the 1st week of class and be eligible for a refund. (See a counselor/advisor to finalize your schedule, so you won't be left without the classes you want or need). Students may not change from credit to audit status after the end of the first week of classes. Online classes may be added through the standard drop add period for that course.

GRADING AND REPEAT COURSE POLICIES State policy specifies that students may not repeat a college credit course for which a grade of "C" or higher has been earned except by appeal to the campus associate provost. Students may repeat a college credit course one time without penalty. At the third attempt, students will pay the full cost of instruction. The full cost of instruction rate for 2009-2010 is $280.39 per credit hour. In addition, at the third attempt students may NOT receive a grade of "I," "W," or "X," but must receive the letter grade earned. This grade will be averaged into the overall grade point average. ATTENDANCE/ACTIVE PARTICIPATION/WITHDRAWAL POLICIES Each instructor must exercise professional judgment to determine if a student is actively participating in class. Faculty will publish their own personal participation/attendance policies in their syllabi. This policy will be used to determine grades. Students who are not actively participating in class as defined in an instructor's syllabus will be reported to the Administration during the week following the voluntary withdrawal date. Instructors will verify that students are in attendance during the first two weeks of class. Students classified as "No Show" for both of the first two weeks will be administratively withdrawn for any class which they are not in attendance. Their financial aid will be adjusted based on the updated enrollment status. Immediately following the 60% point of the term, each instructor will verify which students are actively participating in class as defined in the course syllabus. Students classified as not meeting the criteria for active class participation will be administratively withdrawn with a "WF." Students will be able to withdraw themselves at any time during the term. However, requests submitted after the 60% deadline will result in a "WF." Students and instructors will automatically receive an email notification through their SPC email address whenever a withdrawal occurs. Withdrawing after the "Last Day to Withdraw with a Grade of `W'" (see link to Academic Calendar below) can have serious consequences. If the student withdraws from a class after the deadline posted in the academic calendar, the student will receive a final grade of `WF,' which has the same impact on the student's GPA as a final grade of `F.' A `WF' grade also could impact the student's financial aid and cause the student to repay some of their financial assistance. If the student is thinking about withdrawing from a class now, the student should consult with an academic advisor or financial assistance counselor first to be sure they understand all the possible outcomes of this decision. FEDERAL GUIDELINES RELATED TO FINANCIAL AID AND TOTAL WITHDRAWAL FROM THE COLLEGE http://www.spcollege.edu/central/SSFA/HomePage/hdiasbs.htm The U.S. Department of Education requires students who completely withdraw prior to the 60% point of the term from all classes who have received Federal financial aid, i.e., Federal Pell Grant, Federal Academic Competitiveness Grant (ACG), Federal Stafford Loan, and/or Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) to repay a portion of their financial aid. The law requires the college to refund to the Department of Education the percentage of financial aid which is determined the student did not earn based on the Return of Title IV (R2T4) formula. The student may also be required to repay funds to the College if they are identified as not actively participating in all of their classes, or if they do not receive at least one final passing grade (D or higher) for the term . Students considering a withdrawal from all classes before the published withdrawal date should consult a financial assistance counselor to understand their options and the consequences of the total withdrawal. For further information regarding this policy and other financial assistance policies we encourage you to visit our website at: www.spcollege.edu/getfunds COLLEGE LEVEL ACADEMIC SKILLS TEST (CLAST) CHANGES During the 2009 legislative session, the Legislature repealed the Florida Statutes relating to the College-Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST) and eliminated funding for the test. As of July 1, 2009, students will no longer be required to take the CLAST. But to earn an A.A. degree or transfer to or graduate from a bachelor's program, you must still demonstrate college-level proficiency in English language skills, reading, writing/essay and computation skills. 5

MAT1033-Intermediate Algebra

Fall 2009 (415)

If you have passed any of the CLAST subtests before July 1, 2009, you have met the requirements in those designated areas. If you have not previously passed the CLAST subtests see the following link for alternatives: http://www.spcollege.edu/webcentral/CLAST.htm . DUAL ENROLLMENT, EARLY ADMISSIONS, & EARLY COLLEGE STUDENTS A Dual Enrollment, Early Admissions, or Early College student may not withdraw from any college level course without consultation with the Early College/Dual Enrollment office. Withdrawal from a course may jeopardize the student's graduation from high school. The Dual Enrollment office can be reached at 727 712-5281 (TS), 727 791-5970 (CL) or 727 394-6000 (SE). http://www.spcollege.edu/central/de/index.htm ACADEMIC HONESTY St. Petersburg College has an Academic Honesty policy. It is your responsibility to be familiar with the policies, rules, and the consequences of violations. There is no tolerance for cheating and academic dishonesty. Discipline can range from a zero on a specific assignment to expulsion from the class with a grade of F. Note that copy/pasting published information, whether it's from your textbook or the Internet, without citing your source is plagiarism and violates this policy. Even if you change the words slightly the ideas are someone else's so you still have to cite your sources. Cheating, plagiarism, bribery, misrepresentation, conspiracy, and fabrication are defined in Board Rule 6Hx23-4.461. Student Affairs: Academic Honesty Guidelines, Classroom Behavior. http://www.spcollege.edu/webcentral/catalog/current/stu_affairs_honesty.htm STUDENT EXPECTATIONS All electronic devices such as cell phones, beepers, pagers, and related devices are to be silenced prior to entering the classroom, library, and laboratories to avoid disruption. Use of any device in these areas is a violation of College Policy and subject to disciplinary action. College computers are intended for academic work. Inappropriate use of computers during class time is prohibited. Students should understand that they may be required to use the Internet for some courses. Furthermore, students may be required to have discussions of class assignments and share papers and other class materials with instructors and classmates via chat rooms and other mechanisms. Therefore, Internet users may be able to access students' work whether the access is secured or unsecured. The College cannot protect students from the type of materials on the Internet or the potential piracy of students' materials. Each student's behavior in the classroom or online is expected to contribute to a positive learning/teaching environment, respecting the rights of others and their opportunity to learn. No student has the right to interfere with the teaching/learning process, including the posting of inappropriate materials on chatroom or Web page sites. The instructor has the authority to ask a disruptive student to leave the classroom, lab, or delete posts or materials from an online or blended class and to file disciplinary action if disruptive behavior continues

ONLINE STUDENT PARTICIPATION AND CONDUCT GUIDELINES

· The practices of courtesy and respect that apply in the on campus classroom also apply online. · Any discriminatory, derogatory, or inappropriate comments are unacceptable and subject to the same disciplinary action applied in courses offered on campus.

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS (for students attending classes on campus) In the event that a hurricane or other natural disaster causes significant damage to St. Petersburg College facilities, you may be provided the opportunity to complete your course work online. Following the event, please visit the college Web site for an announcement of the College's plan to resume operations. Students should familiarize themselves with the emergency procedures and evacuation routes located in the buildings they use frequently. Located in each classroom is an Emergency Response Guide (flip-chart) that contains information for proper actions in response to emergencies. Students should be prepared to assess situations quickly and use good judgment in determining a course of action. 6

MAT1033-Intermediate Algebra
