Grading Components Due VS. Recorded HW is due the next class period. HW will be recorded the day of the chapter test. “Daily” Homework (10%) Online at CourseCompass.com CourseCompass.com Practice makes perfect … … only if you practice correctly! do a problem check your answer if wrong … why?

Grading Components “Daily” Homework (10%) “Daily” Quizzes (15%) Tests (75%) Exit Exam Must score 75% or above to pass this class (A, B, or C). Can improve your lowest test score. Due VS. Recorded HW is due the next class period. HW will be recorded the day of the chapter test.

Partial Credit Life Does NOT Give Partial Credit You get charged for a bounced check. The bridge collapses. The patient dies. The bank forecloses/repossesses. You get fired. Very little, if any, partial credit will be given on tests. You are expected to do arithmetic correctly. You may use a calculator to check most solutions.

Take Notes! “95% of what you hear is forgotten within 72 hours.” “90% of what you hear is forgotten a few days later.“ “50% of what you hear is forgotten within 60 seconds.” “After 8 hours, your mind won't recall the details of half of your conversations.” “66% of what you hear is forgotten in one day.” The more you become engaged in the class, the more you will remember and get out of it. "I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand." -- Confucius

Understanding vs. Processes Why? vs. How?

Terminology and Notation Correctly and Accurately Communicate Mathematics

Calculators Not required, but recommended. Basic 4-Function Calculator TI-84?

How will I ever use any of this stuff in my future life? AKA: Why study math? Develop analytical skills. Develop logical and deductive reasoning. Develop skills of abstraction and generalization. Develop problem solving skills. Develop the ability to work through multi-step processes. Develop ability to breakdown a problem into smaller problems.
