I. COURSE TITLE AND DESCRIPTION: Developmental Math. Arithmetic fundamentals and applications: elementary algebra, number systems, basic geometry, formulas, tables, and graphs. II. REQUIRED TEXTBOOK: K. Elayn MartinGay, Prealgebra, Sixth Edition; Prentice Hall Publishing 2011 III. COURSE OBJECTIVES: 1. Add, subtract, multiply and divide whole numbers. 2. Perform operations with integers, fractions and decimals. 3. Find factors and calculate multiples. 4. Calculate percentages. 5. Simplify algebraic expressions. 6. Solve equations with integers, fractions and decimals. IV. TEACHING FORMAT This course will be presented from a lecturedemonstration point of view. The textbook will be the basis for material to be covered and the student will be responsible for reading all assigned material and working those problems selected by the instructor. V. EVALUATION TECHNIQUES: At least four50 minute objective examinations will be given during the semester. These will determine 66 2/3% of a student’s grade. Daily grades will be taken on a class period basis, and will determine the remaining 33 1/3% of the grade. The following grade scale will be used to determine a letter grade: 90%100%  A 80%89% B 60%79% C Below 60% F ATTENTION: A student with a math deficiency must acquire a grade of a “C” or better to advance to intermediate algebra. VI. ATTENDANCE POLICY: Attendance is expected and roll will be taken. Attendance is highly important and stressed to each student. Attendance is not counted as part of a grade; however, poor attendance usually reflects poor performance. VII. MAKEUP EXAMINATIONS: The student is expected to take all examinations at the specified time and date. If a student has circumstances arise which make it impossible to attend, they must contact the instructor prior to the examination in order to be given an opportunity to makeup the examination. Homework is expected to be turned in the class period after assigned but can be turned no later than the test. Must show all work on homework to receive grade! Homework for the final can be turned in no later than the Friday prior to finals week.
