All assignments listed on this assignment sheet include
both book assignments and a worksheets from the packet. (Note: Worksheets have
answers in the packet so you need to read, study and re-work them on your own
notebook paper) Most assignments related to the textbook must be done on-line.
MathXL is the program you will need to do the on- line homework .

The MathXL assignments follow the same order as the
textbook assignment sheet.

Each MathXL assignment is worth 100 points and the
computer grades it for you so you will know how many points you will receive for
each assignment.

Your MathXl cumulative grade will be approximately the
same as one exam grade so to pass this class you must do your MathXL homework.

All textbook work is extra credit because you have so much
work to do on line that is required .

Do you have to do every textbook assignment? No! All
Textbook Assignments are extra credit.

Do you have to do every on-line MathXL assignment? Yes!

Can you pass the class without doing the on-line homework?
Probably not!!!!!

Can you pass the course with out purchasing a textbook?
Probably.

Do I recommend you get a book and a solution manuel ? Yes,
I would suggest you buy them and use them.

When is online homework due? Check the online schedule.

Can you turn in on-line homework late? No! It is due when
it is due. No excuses!

When is textbook homework due? On exam day.

TO GET CREDIT FOR YOUR TEXT BOOK HOMEWORK YOU MUST:

A. Write the assignment number from this sheet , the page
number and the problem

numbers from the book assignment on the TOP RIGHT CORNER of your homework paper.

B. Papers clip these assignments together in the order
they appear on this sheet.

C. Turn your textbook work in on the day you take your
exam. Online homework is due

more often and you will have to check your MathXL to find the due dates. You
must put this assignment sheet on top of any textbook work that you do as a
cover sheet.

D. Any textbook assignment that you have completed must be
highlighted with a high lighter on this assignment sheet. Do not highlight
anything you have not done. Highlighting this assignment sheet will indicate
both to you and to me what you have completed from your textbook.

E. All textbook assignments should be correctly completed
and graded by you. You have the answers to the assigned problems in the back of
your book.

F. Worksheets from the packet have answers on them.
You
should solve the problems on

them showing all work like you do for textbook assignments.

G. You MUST record your score on your grade tally sheet.
You get a completion grade for

all textbook and online homework. Give yourself 5 points for each completed and
corrected regular textbook homework assignment most of which will count as extra
credit. Record that score on the homework line on your grade tally sheet.

H. Your on-line homework grade will be recorded by me and
added to the homework line. YOU MUST DO THE ON-LINE HOMEWORK IN MATHXL IF YOU
EXPECT TO PASS THIS CLASS!!!!!!!!

I. Give yourself 10 points for each extra credit
assignment that is indicated your

assignment sheet with a ** that you complete. Review Exercises and Practice Test
are extra credit assignments and are labeled with **. They should be highlighted
in a different color (for example use a yellow highlighter for completed daily
textbook assignments and a pink highlighter to indicate any ** extra credit
completed assignments). Record this on the line for extra credit assignments on
your grade tally sheet.

J. You must show all work to get credit for extra credit
assignments. Review Exercises

and Practice Tests are good things to do to help you to study for your exam. Be
sure you do those because you earn lots of points for doing them.

K. Do not include daily pop tests from the packet with
assignments from this assignment

sheet – daily pop test do not have answers on them – we go over most of these in
class.

L. You should read the material in the textbook that
precedes each homework lesson. If you have trouble completing your homework, you
should use your study guide to help you, go for free tutoring in the math
tutoring room L245, go to the learning center for help, see me during my office
hours or work with someone in your group. MathXL has great help in the program
to tutor you.

M. All work must be shown on your textbook homework paper.
I will not give you credit

for completing an assignment if you just write the problem and the answer
especially if the problem is complicated and requires several steps . My
philosophy is if I cannot do the problem in my head, I assume you cannot do it
in your head. If the problem is simple and can be done in your head in one step,
then please do it that way.

N. You may call Mrs. Wagner in her office 979-209-7369;
however, I prefer email . I will respond as soon as possible. It is best to try
to reach me by e-mail. I will respond ASAP.

O. Be sure to re-work and study your daily pop tests and
old exams in the Library to help you to study for your exam.

P. The material in your text book is material that you are
supposed to already know is found in Apendix A Review and Apendix B Graphing
Utilities . We will not spend class time reviewing this material most of this is
material you should already know. Because you have so many problems to do for
review that are in the packet the textbook problems in Apendix A Review and
Apendix B Graphing Utilities (labeled with *) are optional and will be counted
as extra credit assignments which you will be given 5 points each for
completing. The Chapter Reviews and Chapter Tests (labeled with **) will be
counted as 10 points each. To earn the most extra credit points do the Chapter
Review and the Chapter Test first. If you find that you do not have a firm grasp
of these basic concepts, then you should consider taking one of the classes that
precedes this course. The material that is in Apendix A Review and Apendix B
Graphing Utilities in your book is covered in detail in M0312. There are not
many days to change classes so make your decision quickly so that you do not
loose your money or your time.

Q. You will be expected to do all the assigned online
textbook assignments Chapter F.1 –

F.4, Appendix A.5, Chapters 1 – 4, Chapter 5.2 and Chapter 6 on line in MathXL.
These assignments are graphing assignments, which pertain to the material that
is essential to this class. Each regular assignment is worth 10 points. Any
on-line textbook assignment will count against your grade if you do not complete
it.

R. This is a “functions class and a learn to graph class”.
The purpose of this class is to teach you to work with functions and learn to
recognize equations of different types, graph them, interpret what they are
telling you, i.e. You must learn to understand the equations we cover and the
graphs they form. You should be able to recognize what a function is, describe
and understand it’s characteristics and graph it.

S. You MUST bring your calculator to class everyday.

T. If you have financial problems at the beginning of the
semester, I have a textbook and

a blank packet on file in the library for you to use.
