AUTHOR: Mario F. Triola Published by: Pearson Education Inc.
If you purchase the text book, make sure it includes the MyStatLab Access Code.
You may choose to just buy an access code and not a textbook at all since the access code gives you access to an online e-book.
Internet: You need access to reliable internet service to access the class on a daily basis. (If your internet service is interrupted, it is also a good idea to have a back up plan for accessing the internet elsewhere so that you can complete your school work!)
Electronic Devices: You will need a working laptop, computer, tablet, or phone with a functioning camera to watch video lectures, take pictures of your handwritten work to submit online, and complete online homework and tests. You will also need access to a reliable printer to produce class notes and other materials. (Computers and printers are available for student use in the Underground in the WARE Building on the Washington Street Campus and also in the Academic Success Center - Math in Durrett Hall). Every student has $20 pre-loaded onto their student ID to cover printing costs!)
Calculator: You will need a graphing calculator for this course. The recommended calculator is a Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus. Other forms of Texas Instruments or Casio graphing calculators will be permitted at the instructors discretion. Note that TI-89s, TI-NSpires, and graphing calculator apps are not permitted in the Math Testing Lab.
Helpful Apps: Please download the free CamScanner app (or a similar scanning app) to help assist you in turning your handwritten work to pdf form and submitting for grading.

POLICY ON CHEATING AND PLAGIARISM: Plagiarism and cheating will not be tolerated in any math course at Amarillo College.

Cheating includes, but is not limited to, the illegal use of books, notes, cell phones, copying or leaving the Math Testing Center with a test or questions from a test. Cheating also includes helping, or attempting to help, other students to cheat on a test. You will be taking your midterm and final exam in the Math Testing Center. Please note: NO CELL PHONES in the Testing Room. If we see your cell phone out AT ANY TIME, FOR ANY REASON, while in the testing room, you will receive an F for the course.
BEHAVIORAL EXPECTATIONS/CLASSROOM GROUND RULES: Students are expected to behave in the online environment the same way as in a traditional classroom. In order to receive credit for a course, all material listed on the syllabus must be covered. The instructor sets the pace to ensure that these requirements are met. Complaining about the pace will not result in less material being covered. Students who fail to comply with the standards outlined in the syllabus and/or “Student Rights & Responsibilities” will be subject to disciplinary action which may include but is not limited to; denied access to online course, consultation with department chair and/or other AC authority, withdrawal from the course and/or the college.
This class demands a great deal of time. Online courses often take more time than in-class delivery courses. Please expect to spend at least 10-15 hours each week on this course. If your other life commitments do not allow you this amount of time to spend on the course, you may want to choose another course or delivery method.
INSTRUCTIONAL METHOD / EXAMINATIONS / ASSIGNMENTS and GRADING:

You will be required to provide a photo ID to take an exam. If you need to take your midterm and final exam somewhere other than the Washington Street Campus math testing center, you must make arrangements with me by April 6! There will be a form in Blackboard for you to complete. If you fail to complete the form by the deadline, you will be required to test at the Washington Street Campus.
Keep on track: All homework and tests can be started early. You may work ahead. Do not to wait until the last minute to start an assignment so that if you are ill or have technical difficulties you are not put in a bind.
Late Work: Deadlines are your responsibility. Due dates are posted on the MyStatLab website and in the class in Blackboard (through the AC Connect Portal). However, because this is an online course, I can tailor it to your individual needs without disrupting the flow of the course.

No extensions are available, however, for the midterm, chapter 7&8 online exam or the final exam.
