Course Title: COLLEGE ALGEBRA and TRIGONOMETRY

Course Credit: 5

Course Requirements: 5 Long Exams = 2/3 of Final Grade

1 Final Exam = 1/3 of Final Grade

Attendance, Participation, Quizzes, Homework (Bonus points for Exams)

Passing Grade: 60%

Consultation Hours: By appointment (send me an e-mail)

Main Reference: Modern Algebra and Trigonometry Third Edition (Vance)

Course Objectives:

At the end of the course, the student is expected to know the basic concepts of College Algebra and

Trigonometry. In particular, the student is expected to know the following:

• Simplifying and solving algebraic expressions and algebraic equations

• Problem-solving using algebraic equations

• The Geometry of Real Numbers, The Cartesian Plane, The Circle

• Relations and Functions and differentiate them from each other

• Topics in Linear and Quadratic Functions

• Topics in Polynomial Functions

• The concept of inverse functions including its relationship with the original function

• Exponential and Logarithmic Functions including compound interest

• Matrices and Determinants including solving systems of linear equations using Cramer’s Rule

• The Circular Functions

• Inverse Circular Functions

• Graphs and Applications of Circular Functions

• The Law of Sines and the Law of Cosines and problem-solving involving Oblique Triangles

• Complex Numbers and Vectors

• Powers and roots of Complex Numbers

Exams:

There will be 5 written Long Exams with a cumulative weight of 2/3 of the Final Grade. Aside from

this, a Final Exam will be given at the end of the semester and this will make up 1/3 of the Final Grade. The

passing grade at the end of the semester is 60%. Standard college rules will be used in determining the Final

Grade to be marked in the grading sheet.

If the student has obtained an average of 80% or higher for the 5 Long Exams, he/she can opt not to

take the Final Exam. If he/she does so, then the Final Grade will be the average for the 5 Long Exams.

Attendance, Participation, Quizzes, Homework:

Extra Bonus points or percentage points will be given to students who have a good attendance. Points

Earned from quizzes and homework also have their corresponding merit in the Examinations. Please refer to

the table at the end for more information.

Class Policy:

1. If a student is late for more than 15 minutes for a particular class period, then he will be marked

absent for that period.

2. There will be no make-up for missed quizzes and unsubmitted homework or homework submitted

past the deadline.

3. If a student misses a Long Exam for a valid reason (requires documentation), then he/she must take

the Final Exam and the grade for the missed Long Exam will be the grade of the Final Exam. If a

student misses a second Long Exam, then it is automatically ZERO regardless of the reason. A

student who misses an exam for an invalid reason will have a grade of ZERO for that exam.

4. Cheating, in any form, including copying homework will not be tolerated.
