    Textbook: Trigonometry; Lial, Hornsby, Schneider, Ninth Edition

    .

    1. The software that you will be provided for this course includes the online textbook. Some find it a little inconvenient to scroll through pages and read text online, while others find the online text sufficient for their purposes. As you work with problems and concepts online, the program will refer you to text page numbers that relate to the problems that you are studying. If you are comfortable with no text in your hand, this is the most economical choice.

     

    1. Many students who desire a hard copy of the text report success with locating very low price editions online. Amazon, Pearson, and Borders have had economical options available in the past.

     

    1. I will note that often, during lecture, I will refer to exercises in the text, and those with texts in class will realize some advantage.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Calculators: A graphing calculator is required for this course. The TI- 83/84 or the TI - 83/84+ is recommended and will work well with other math and science courses. If you plan to study math and science courses at University, economical purchases might be found at Best Buy, Wal-Mart, EBay and Texas Instruments etc.

    I will check out a calculator to any student that needs one for this course and does not plan to purchase one at this time.

    Course Description: This course is designed to assist students in developing the trigonometric background for the calculus curriculum and other areas that require a foundation in the science of trigonometry.

     

     

    Attendance: Lectures are an integral part of this course, thus every student is required to attend all classes as material is presented at lecture to supplement the text.Attendance will be recorded for each meeting, and unexcused absences in excess of two days will result in a final exam score penalty of one point for each day in excess of three unexcused absences.Contact the instructor if an emergency arises that will affect attendance. A physician’s statement will result in an excused absence.

     

    In the event you must be absent, I have included a set of directed lecture notes under the home page tab,” Lecture Notes”. These include key concepts and questions that will direct your attention to the important features of the section under study.

     

    This course will utilize WWW.CourseCompass.Com  software. You will find the course calendar, lecture notes, homework assignments and schedules, online tests, practice problems, chapter quizzes, and your grade book at this site. You obtain access to this site when I give you  MyMathLab software. I will give you your access code and show you how to maneuver around the site the first day of class. You will find it very user friendly, easy, and convenient to use.

     

    While problems with the site should be rare, you may try http://247pearsoned.custhelp.com or you may call the help desk at 1-800-677-6337.

     

    Online Tests: There will be an online chapter test after each chapter is completed.

    You will have two attempts at the test with up to a five day window to complete. I will have the highest score of the two posted. However, you will not be able to submit a test late without a consultation with me.

     

     There are online mid chapter reviews and practice tests that are optional. Completing all or part of these reviews will result in significant extra credit points added to the chapter test score. These provide significant opportunity to post a good test score

    .

     I will substitute your final exam score for ONE zero test score, but only ONE!

    You will get immediate feedback on your test scores and they will be posted in your grade book. You will also be able to review your test results immediately after the test is submitted.

     

    Online Chapter Tests will comprise 10% of your grade.

     

    Quizzes: There will be daily problems based on the previous day’s lesson. These problems will be graded and at the end of the semester grades will be averaged and will comprise 33% of the final quiz score. Students will be asked to volunteer solutions on the board. Participating students will receive credit for volunteering.

     

    In addition, there will be weekly Act practice problems. Each Wed. I will collect the answers and grade the results. Again, at the end of the semester, I will average the results and this will go into the gradebooks as 33% of the final quiz grade. Students will be asked to volunteer solutions on the board. Participating students will receive credit for volunteering

     

    The quiz score, made up of the ACT, daily problems, and the essay will comprise 10 % of the course grade,

     

    Proctored Exams. Proctored, in class, exams will contribute 70% to your final grade. There will be three proctored preliminary exams and a final exam. Most, if not all, of these exams will be conducted during block days.

     

    The exam questions are aligned with the online quizzes and chapter tests. A conscientious effort on the quizzes and tests will leave you very well prepared for the exams.

     

    Security of these exams has been as issue, so all cellphones are collected before the exam and returned to students after completion.

     

     

    Practice Final. I will post a practice final online about two weeks before the end of the semester that is optional. Should you choose to do it, I will add up to 15% of the practice final points to your lowest test score. It will provide an excellent review tool for the final.

     

     

    Extra Credit:  There will be a lot of opportunity to achieve extra credit in this course! You can accrue extra credit by completing certain handout problems, study plan and practice test problems from the Course Compass website, and special questions I may select from the text. You will also receive extra credit by volunteering to demonstrate solutions to practice problems as they occur daily during lecture.

     

     Significant extra credit is obtained by completing some or all of the optional mid chapter reviews. The points awarded will vary according to the difficulty of the question and the apparent effort you put into the extra work. Extra credit work can significantly help you to succeed in this course with a good grade. You are encouraged to do as much extra credit work as possible.

     

    Individual Tutoring; There is significant opportunity for help with this course. You are not alone!!! In addition to the excellent tutorials built into the online software, my office hours are posted on this syllabus. Further, the math lab on campus has tutors scheduled that can assist you with issues you may be experiencing. The math lab hours are as follows:

     

    Mon- Thurs: 8am – 7 pm

    Fri – 8am – 3pm

    Sat – 12pm – 4pm

     

    You may also obtain free online tutoring at http://smarthinking.com through the college account. There is a link to this service on Canvas. Individual one on one free tutoring can be scheduled at the College Library.

     

    Performance Summaries:  You will have continuous feedback on your course performance at your grade book on the course website. I may also on occasion, post class performance by student ID such that you may compare your scores to the class as a whole.

    VIII. Additional statements for this course (first 3 bullets are required; others should be included when appropriate for your course)

    • Early Support Program (ESP): The College of Central Florida is committed to helping you succeed and achieve your academic, personal and career goals. One of the ways we can accomplish this goal with you is through an Early Support Program. Our philosophy, based on extensive research and practice, is that when students are connected early to resources and support systems on campus they are more likely to stay in classes, perform better in those classes, and complete their path more quickly. Therefore, you may be contacted by your First Year Success Specialist, program Advisor and/or other resources on our campus if there is a time during the semester I feel it would be beneficial to your continued success. I am always your first point of contact for any concerns that affect your success or with course content, so I encourage you to come to me to discuss those issues. Also, be assured that I will first communicate any concerns I have with you and will then connect you with the other areas on our campus to help develop a network of support for you.

     

     

    • Library Resources: The CF Libraries are here to help with your research and information needs. Search the library catalog (library.cf.edu), or contact the Ocala campus library (library@cf.edu, 352-854-2322 x1345) or the Citrus campus library (citruslb@cf.edu, 352-249-1205) with questions. Learn more about research help, online and database searching, and citing your sources by visiting the CF Virtual Library (cf.libguides.com) or by visiting the Ocala library (Building 3) or Citrus library (Building C2, Room 202) for one-on-one help.

Scheduled holidays may extend the response time.

    1. PRIORITY REGISTRATION DATES

    WHEN SHOULD I REGISTER FOR THE NEXT SEMESTER?

     

    • Registration is conducted by a process called Priority Registration. Those students who have earned hours may register ahead of those who have not earned hours or who have less earned hours.
    • This process provides opportunities for those students who are closer to graduation to enroll in classes before students with fewer numbers of earned credit hours. This ensures that students have an opportunity to register for the courses they need to be able to graduate on time before the courses are filled.
    • The enrollment process for the next semester begins EARLY in the current semester. It is important that you know your priority registration date and have your course choices planned out prior to that date.
    • Priority registration is also available to those students made eligible through the Disability Services office.

     

    If you are unsure of what courses to enroll in or how to use the online registration system, it is highly recommended that you schedule an appointment with your academic advisor EARLY in the current semester.
     

    It is important that you register for the upcoming semester courses as soon as your Priority Registration date opens in order to get the CORRECT courses & scheduled

    Proctored Exams. Proctored, in class, exams will contribute 70% to your final grade. There will be three proctored preliminary exams and a final exam. Most, if not all, of these exams will be conducted during block days.

     

    The exam questions are aligned with the online quizzes and chapter tests. A conscientious effort on the quizzes and tests will leave you very well prepared for the exams.

     

    Security of these exams has been as issue, so all cellphones are collected before the exam and returned to students after completion.

     

     

    Practice Final. I will post a practice final online about two weeks before the end of the semester that is optional. Should you choose to do it, I will add up to 15% of the practice final points to your lowest test score. It will provide an excellent review tool for the final.

     

     

    Extra Credit:  There will be a lot of opportunity to achieve extra credit in this course! You can accrue extra credit by completing certain handout problems, study plan and practice test problems from the Course Compass website, and special questions I may select from the text. You will also receive extra credit by volunteering to demonstrate solutions to practice problems as they occur daily during lecture.

     

     Significant extra credit is obtained by completing some or all of the optional mid chapter reviews. The points awarded will vary according to the difficulty of the question and the apparent effort you put into the extra work. Extra credit work can significantly help you to succeed in this course with a good grade. You are encouraged to do as much extra credit work as possible.

     

    Individual Tutoring; There is significant opportunity for help with this course. You are not alone!!! In addition to the excellent tutorials built into the online software, my office hours are posted on this syllabus. Further, the math lab on campus has tutors scheduled that can assist you with issues you may be experiencing. The math lab hours are as follows:

     

    Mon- Thurs: 8am – 7 pm

    Fri – 8am – 3pm

    Sat – 12pm – 4pm

     

    You may also obtain free online tutoring at http://smarthinking.com through the college account. There is a link to this service on Canvas. Individual one on one free tutoring can be scheduled at the College Library.

     

    Performance Summaries:  You will have continuous feedback on your course performance at your grade book on the course website. I may also on occasion, post class performance by student ID such that you may compare your scores to the class as a whole.

    VIII. Additional statements for this course (first 3 bullets are required; others should be included when appropriate for your course)

    • Early Support Program (ESP): The College of Central Florida is committed to helping you succeed and achieve your academic, personal and career goals. One of the ways we can accomplish this goal with you is through an Early Support Program. Our philosophy, based on extensive research and practice, is that when students are connected early to resources and support systems on campus they are more likely to stay in classes, perform better in those classes, and complete their path more quickly. Therefore, you may be contacted by your First Year Success Specialist, program Advisor and/or other resources on our campus if there is a time during the semester I feel it would be beneficial to your continued success. I am always your first point of contact for any concerns that affect your success or with course content, so I encourage you to come to me to discuss those issues. Also, be assured that I will first communicate any concerns I have with you and will then connect you with the other areas on our campus to help develop a network of support for you.

    1. PRIORITY REGISTRATION DATES

    WHEN SHOULD I REGISTER FOR THE NEXT SEMESTER?

     

    • Registration is conducted by a process called Priority Registration. Those students who have earned hours may register ahead of those who have not earned hours or who have less earned hours.
    • This process provides opportunities for those students who are closer to graduation to enroll in classes before students with fewer numbers of earned credit hours. This ensures that students have an opportunity to register for the courses they need to be able to graduate on time before the courses are filled.
    • The enrollment process for the next semester begins EARLY in the current semester. It is important that you know your priority registration date and have your course choices planned out prior to that date.
    • Priority registration is also available to those students made eligible through the Disability Services office.

     

    If you are unsure of what courses to enroll in or how to use the online registration system, it is highly recommended that you schedule an appointment with your academic advisor EARLY in the current semester.
     

    It is important that you register for the upcoming semester courses as soon as your Priority Registration date opens in order to get the CORRECT courses & scheduled

    Textbook: Trigonometry; Lial, Hornsby, Schneider, Ninth Edition

    .

    1. The software that you will be provided for this course includes the online textbook. Some find it a little inconvenient to scroll through pages and read text online, while others find the online text sufficient for their purposes. As you work with problems and concepts online, the program will refer you to text page numbers that relate to the problems that you are studying. If you are comfortable with no text in your hand, this is the most economical choice.

     

    1. Many students who desire a hard copy of the text report success with locating very low price editions online. Amazon, Pearson, and Borders have had economical options available in the past.

     

    1. I will note that often, during lecture, I will refer to exercises in the text, and those with texts in class will realize some advantage.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Calculators: A graphing calculator is required for this course. The TI- 83/84 or the TI - 83/84+ is recommended and will work well with other math and science courses. If you plan to study math and science courses at University, economical purchases might be found at Best Buy, Wal-Mart, EBay and Texas Instruments etc.

    I will check out a calculator to any student that needs one for this course and does not plan to purchase one at this time.

    Course Description: This course is designed to assist students in developing the trigonometric background for the calculus curriculum and other areas that require a foundation in the science of trigonometry.

     

     

    Attendance: Lectures are an integral part of this course, thus every student is required to attend all classes as material is presented at lecture to supplement the text.Attendance will be recorded for each meeting, and unexcused absences in excess of two days will result in a final exam score penalty of one point for each day in excess of three unexcused absences.Contact the instructor if an emergency arises that will affect attendance. A physician’s statement will result in an excused absence.

     

    In the event you must be absent, I have included a set of directed lecture notes under the home page tab,” Lecture Notes”. These include key concepts and questions that will direct your attention to the important features of the section under study.

     

    This course will utilize WWW.CourseCompass.Com  software. You will find the course calendar, lecture notes, homework assignments and schedules, online tests, practice problems, chapter quizzes, and your grade book at this site. You obtain access to this site when I give you  MyMathLab software. I will give you your access code and show you how to maneuver around the site the first day of class. You will find it very user friendly, easy, and convenient to use.

     

    While problems with the site should be rare, you may try http://247pearsoned.custhelp.com or you may call the help desk at 1-800-677-6337.

     

    Online Tests: There will be an online chapter test after each chapter is completed.

    You will have two attempts at the test with up to a five day window to complete. I will have the highest score of the two posted. However, you will not be able to submit a test late without a consultation with me.

     

     There are online mid chapter reviews and practice tests that are optional. Completing all or part of these reviews will result in significant extra credit points added to the chapter test score. These provide significant opportunity to post a good test score

    .

     I will substitute your final exam score for ONE zero test score, but only ONE!

    You will get immediate feedback on your test scores and they will be posted in your grade book. You will also be able to review your test results immediately after the test is submitted.

     

    Online Chapter Tests will comprise 10% of your grade.

     

    Quizzes: There will be daily problems based on the previous day’s lesson. These problems will be graded and at the end of the semester grades will be averaged and will comprise 33% of the final quiz score. Students will be asked to volunteer solutions on the board. Participating students will receive credit for volunteering.

     

    In addition, there will be weekly Act practice problems. Each Wed. I will collect the answers and grade the results. Again, at the end of the semester, I will average the results and this will go into the gradebooks as 33% of the final quiz grade. Students will be asked to volunteer solutions on the board. Participating students will receive credit for volunteering

     

    The quiz score, made up of the ACT, daily problems, and the essay will comprise 10 % of the course grade,

     

    Proctored Exams. Proctored, in class, exams will contribute 70% to your final grade. There will be three proctored preliminary exams and a final exam. Most, if not all, of these exams will be conducted during block days.

     

    The exam questions are aligned with the online quizzes and chapter tests. A conscientious effort on the quizzes and tests will leave you very well prepared for the exams.

     

    Security of these exams has been as issue, so all cellphones are collected before the exam and returned to students after completion.

     

     

    Practice Final. I will post a practice final online about two weeks before the end of the semester that is optional. Should you choose to do it, I will add up to 15% of the practice final points to your lowest test score. It will provide an excellent review tool for the final.

     

     

    Extra Credit:  There will be a lot of opportunity to achieve extra credit in this course! You can accrue extra credit by completing certain handout problems, study plan and practice test problems from the Course Compass website, and special questions I may select from the text. You will also receive extra credit by volunteering to demonstrate solutions to practice problems as they occur daily during lecture.

     

     Significant extra credit is obtained by completing some or all of the optional mid chapter reviews. The points awarded will vary according to the difficulty of the question and the apparent effort you put into the extra work. Extra credit work can significantly help you to succeed in this course with a good grade. You are encouraged to do as much extra credit work as possible.

     

    Individual Tutoring; There is significant opportunity for help with this course. You are not alone!!! In addition to the excellent tutorials built into the online software, my office hours are posted on this syllabus. Further, the math lab on campus has tutors scheduled that can assist you with issues you may be experiencing. The math lab hours are as follows:

     

    Mon- Thurs: 8am – 7 pm

    Fri – 8am – 3pm

    Sat – 12pm – 4pm

     

    You may also obtain free online tutoring at http://smarthinking.com through the college account. There is a link to this service on Canvas. Individual one on one free tutoring can be scheduled at the College Library.

     

    Performance Summaries:  You will have continuous feedback on your course performance at your grade book on the course website. I may also on occasion, post class performance by student ID such that you may compare your scores to the class as a whole.

    v VI. College Policies (dates are for Fall 2019)

     

    Academic Integrity – Academic dishonesty (such as plagiarism or cheating) will not be tolerated and may result in disciplinary action under the Code of Student Conduct. Cases of academic dishonesty will be referred to a mandatory, two-hour Academic Integrity Seminar, which includes a fee (see the Student Handbook). Failure to attend the Academic Integrity Seminar will result in the assignment of a final course grade of “FF” on the student’s transcript, denoting course failure due to a violation of the college’s Academic Integrity policy. For a better understanding of academic integrity and ethical writing practices, please see The Office of Research Integrity’s Guide to Ethical Writing or the CF Library’s Academic Integrity guide.

The documentation of student absences will begin the first day of class, regardless of when the student registers. When a student has a legitimate reason for being absent, the instructor has the option of permitting the student to make up work missed and may require an explanation for the absence. The college reserves the right to evaluate individual cases of nonattendance. See the Student Handbook, Policy Manual and Administrative Procedures.

    VIII. Additional statements for this course (first 3 bullets are required; others should be included when appropriate for your course)

    • Early Support Program (ESP): The College of Central Florida is committed to helping you succeed and achieve your academic, personal and career goals. One of the ways we can accomplish this goal with you is through an Early Support Program. Our philosophy, based on extensive research and practice, is that when students are connected early to resources and support systems on campus they are more likely to stay in classes, perform better in those classes, and complete their path more quickly. Therefore, you may be contacted by your First Year Success Specialist, program Advisor and/or other resources on our campus if there is a time during the semester I feel it would be beneficial to your continued success. I am always your first point of contact for any concerns that affect your success or with course content, so I encourage you to come to me to discuss those issues. Also, be assured that I will first communicate any concerns I have with you and will then connect you with the other areas on our campus to help develop a network of support for you.

    1. PRIORITY REGISTRATION DATES

    WHEN SHOULD I REGISTER FOR THE NEXT SEMESTER?

     

    • Registration is conducted by a process called Priority Registration. Those students who have earned hours may register ahead of those who have not earned hours or who have less earned hours.
    • This process provides opportunities for those students who are closer to graduation to enroll in classes before students with fewer numbers of earned credit hours. This ensures that students have an opportunity to register for the courses they need to be able to graduate on time before the courses are filled.
    • The enrollment process for the next semester begins EARLY in the current semester. It is important that you know your priority registration date and have your course choices planned out prior to that date.
    • Priority registration is also available to those students made eligible through the Disability Services office.

     

    If you are unsure of what courses to enroll in or how to use the online registration system, it is highly recommended that you schedule an appointment with your academic advisor EARLY in the current semester.
     

    It is important that you register for the upcoming semester courses as soon as your Priority Registration date opens in order to get the CORRECT courses & scheduled
