\item[Prerequisites] MTH 95, RD 115, and WR 115, or equivalent placement. Audit available.
\item[Course description] Explores relations and functions graphically, numerically, symbolically, and verbally. Examines exponential, logarithmic, polynomial, and rational functions. Investigates applications from a variety of perspectives.
CCOGs: \href{http://www.pcc.edu/ccog/default.cfm?fa=ccog&subject=MTH&course=111}{http://www.pcc.edu/ccog/default.cfm?fa=ccog\&subject=MTH\&course=111}
\item[Required materials]
\begin{itemize}
\item College Algebra and Trigonometry, Custom Edition for PCC by Sullivan and Sullivan,
or Precalculus concepts through functions, A unit circle approach to trigonometry, 2nd edition by Sullivan and Sullivan.
\item Graphing calculator required. TI-89 Titanium or Casio Classpad 330 recommended.
\item Graph paper, pencil, ruler, and pen. Coloured pencils may also be useful.
\end{itemize}
\item[e-mail contact] I will occasionally send important information to your PCC e-mail address. Please either check your PCC e-mail address regularly, {\em or}
have your PCC e-mail forwarded to an address that you do check regularly (Options$\rightarrow$ Settings $\rightarrow$ Mail Forwarding).
\item[Approaches to study]
Math 111 is a technically demanding course which is paced steadily and introduces concepts that form the foundation of advanced calculus.
The ideas are covered in a natural sequence, and if the student stays on top of the work load, they have every chance of success. Topics will be
discussed in class, with exercises that tune the technique and problems that re-enforce understanding.
At this level of learning, the student is responsible for ensuring their own understanding. Questions are encouraged both during class and in
office hours. Indeed, they are a significant part of the learning process. All students are further encouraged to work together- collaboration is an
important part of any activity, and it is almost always beneficial for all involved.
\item[Grading] There are 5 forms of grading in this course, which are classified as follows
\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{lc}
Homework write-ups & 10 \% \\
Quizzes & 10 \% \\
Project & 10 \% \\
Exam 1 & 20 \% \\
Exam 2 & 20 \% \\
Final & 30 \%
\end{tabular}
\end{center}
The grading criteria are as follows:\\
\begin{tabular}{ll}
A: & 90\% and above\\
B: & 80\% - 89\% \\
C: & 70\%-79\% \\
D: & 60\%-69\% \\
F: & below 60\%
\end{tabular}
\item[Homework write-ups] Each week a selection of problems from the homework will be assigned, which must be written up formally and submitted
the next week. These must be presented clearly, using mathematical notation appropriately.
\item[Quizzes] will be given either in class, or as take home assignments. If you miss class without excusing yourself and there is a quiz during that period, then you will not be allowed to take it at a
later time.
\item[Exams] The exams will be held in the classroom given at the beginning, and will take place in normal class hours on the dates specified in the schedule on page \pageref{schedule} of this syllabus.
\item[Final] The final exam will be comprehensive, and will be held on the date specified in the schedule on page \pageref{schedule} of this syllabus.
In addition, there will be exercises and problems that are set each session, but not put towards the final grade.
Completing these problems is an invaluable part of the learning process, and there will be time at the beginning of each
class session to address questions arising from the homework- please make the most of these opportunities.
Homework problems will be posted on my website before each class session| see link at beginning of this syllabus.
