Total 

Each student’s average for the semester will be based on a total of 700 points. The usual grading scale (90%—100% is an A, 80%—89% is a B, etc.) will apply. If a student simply quits attending class without officially withdrawing, the student will receive a grade of F in the class.

 Calculators: Use of calculators is allowed on all tests.  Each student taking this course needs access to a TI-83 or equivalent graphing/scientific calculator.  Students will use their calculator while participating in class, taking exams, and completing homework exercises.  Please note that sharing calculators during graded assignments is not permitted.

 COMPASS: In order to complete Learning Support requirements for mathematics, students must earn a grade of C or better in MATH 0099 and pass the COMPASS exit exam with a score of 40 or higher.

 Academic Policies: If a student simply quits attending class without officially withdrawing, the student will receive a grade of F in the class. The last day for officially withdrawing from class without grade penalty is mid-semester. Withdrawals after mid-semester are subject to approval by the Vice President for Academic Affairs and will be issued only in cases of extreme emergency or hardship.

 Please refer to the Georgia Highlands College catalog or web site for general academic information or for additional information regarding the Learning Support policies and procedures.

 

 

 

Student Learning Outcomes:

Each student completing MATH 0099 should meet the following goal and expected results.

Goal: 

The student will be able to demonstrate the ability to apply mathematical thought and methods.

Expected Result (1):

The student will be able to demonstrate arithmetic and algebraic skills in solving equations and inequalities.                            

Expected Result (2):

The student will be able to graph both abstract and real-life functions and other relationships.               

Expected Result (3):

The student will be able to model concrete problems and arrive at solutions. 

 Attendance: Students are expected to attend each and every scheduled class session.  Since lectures begin promptly at the scheduled time, students are encouraged to avoid arriving late to class. Participation is partially measured through attendance. Roll will be taken at the beginning of each class session.

 Make-up tests: No make-up tests will be given in this class.  If a student misses a test then they will receive a grade of zero on that test.  At the end of the semester all students have the option of replacing one test grade with their grade on the optional final exam.  Students that know in advance they will be absent on a test day may make arrangements with the instructor to take the test at a time prior to the time the class takes the test.

 

Cheating:  Cheating (or even the appearance of cheating) will not be tolerated in this class. Any student that the instructor suspects of cheating will be removed from the testing area. The issue will be referred to the appropriate Floyd College committee for investigation. 

ADA: Students seeking reasonable accommodations under ADA should contact the Floyd College ADA coordinator (Rome campus) for information and guidance.

This message applies only to students receiving financial aid:  Federal regulations state that if a student did not attend classes and received failing grades, then the grades were not earned and financial aid needs to be reduced accordingly.  Please be advised that any student receiving a 0.00 GPA will be required to prove that the 0.00 GPA was earned by attending classes or completing requirements for each class.  Students who have earned at least one passing grade for the semester will not be affected by this regulation.  If a student has properly withdrawn from all classes, the student’s financial aid should be adjusted from the time they signed the withdrawal form.
