Math 10, PreCalculus, covers the basic mathematics needed to succeed in calculus. We will consider the set of real numbers and the coordinate plane; the basics of functions; the algebraic functions, including polynomial functions (with emphasis on linear and quadratic functions), rational functions, and other algebraic functions; the transcendental functions, including trigonometric and exponential and logarithmic functions; and obtaining new functions by arithmetically combining functions, composing functions, and taking the inverse of invertible functions. We will also consider conic sections, polar coordinates, and parametric equations. Instructor: Mary A. Cox E-mail: macox@uvm.edu Required eBook or Physical Text: J. Douglas Faires and James DeFranza, PreCalculus, Fifth Edition With WebAssign Access Code You will also need headphones or earbuds for viewing videos in the classroom. Final grade for the class is based upon: Discussion Board and Mathematica Labs: 10%, Chapter Quizzes: 72%, and Final Exam: 18%. All of the work in this class will be through Blackboard and WebAssign. See details below! Inclusiveness In keeping with University policy, any student with a documented disability interested in utilizing accommodations should contact ACCESS, the office of Disability Services on campus. ACCESS works with students to create reasonable and appropriate accommodations via an accommodation letter to their professors as early as possible each semester. Contact ACCESS: A170 Living/Learning Center - 802-656-7753 - access@uvm.edu. Students have the right to practice the religion of their choice. If you need to miss class to observe a religious holiday, please submit the dates of your absence to me in writing by the end of the second full week of classes. You will be permitted to make up work within a mutually agreed-upon time.

Details

The Big Picture This course is largely self-paced with options that you choose to maximize your learning. Much of this material you may have seen before, so you may be able to move quickly through those sections. All sections have deadlines that they must be completed by, but you may whiz through more quickly if you desire (and are able to). During the two weeks of in-class meetings, you will self-pace your work with direct support from the instructor and your fellow students in teams or groups.

Order of the Material: The material is arranged in chapters (see the following schedule for approximate timing):

1: Functions 2: New Functions from Old 3: Algebraic Functions 4: Trigonometric Functions 5: Exponential and Logarithm Functions 6: Conic Sections, Polar Coordinates, and Parametric Equations

Each chapter contains sections, and each section contains one or more topics constructed around specific knowledge and skills needed to be successful in future math classes. The order of the material is set because we build on earlier ideas as we progress through the topics, sections, and chapters.

The end goal: You must demonstrate that you have acquired the specific knowledge and skills required for moving on to calculus.

How you get there: Most sections have the same set-up. (Excepting introductory sections at the beginning of each chapter, which involve short readings and/or videos, and short discussion board postings. Some sections also have short Mathematica labs.) You begin by taking a scored practice quiz to determine your current level of mastery of the topics in that section. Typically, a score of 80% to 100% earns you the Master designation. If you are already a Master, you are ready to move onto the next section. If you receive less than 80% on the practice quiz, you may need a quick review or, if the material seems to be brand new to you, you may need a more in-depth study of the topics in that section. Readings, videos, examples, and tutorials are provided. All of the course materials for every topic are available for every student. You may pick and choose, to fill in gaps, learn

new stuff, see more examples, practice a bit more. You are free to use whatever material you like for any topic. Even Masters continue learning, so if you are a Master you should still take a few minutes to take a look at the materials to see if there is anything you could learn. When you are ready, you take the scored practice quiz again to demonstrate your knowledge and skills for that section.

Whats next: The goal is to achieve Master level on each section (score of 80% or above). Suppose you with an initial score of 50%. You read the materials, look at the videos, look at the tutorials, practice some problems. You take the scored quiz and get a 70%. Congratulations! You are getting there. Go back and look at the materials. Practice some more problems. Figure out if there is some concept that is troubling you. Ask for help! When you are ready, take the scored quiz again. You may repeat this process until you achieve an 80% or above on the scored quiz for that section. Once you have achieved Master level on a given section, you are ready to move on to the next section. However, you may continue to retake the quiz as many times as you like to practice your skills.

Chapter Quizzes: At the end of each chapter, after you have achieved an 80% or above on all practice quizzes for the sections in that chapter, you will take a chapter quiz to demonstrate your mastery of that entire chapter. You will begin by attempting the chapter quiz, so that you can determine if there are any topics in that chapter that you need to brush up on. You may go back, review readings and videos, practice some more problems, ask questions. You may take the quiz for that chapter as many times as you like. You may repeat this process until you achieve an 80% or above on the quiz for that chapter. Once you have achieved Master level on a given chapter, you are ready to move on to the next chapter.

Final exam: At the end of the course, you will take an exam to demonstrate your mastery of all the topics in the course. Again, you will begin by taking a practice test, so that you can determine if there are any topics in the course that you need to brush up on. You may go back, review readings and videos, practice some more problems, ask questions. You may take the practice test as many times as you like. When you are ready, you take the final exam.
