3. TEXTBOOK AND COURSE SUPPORT MATERIALS

a. Textbook:
Prealgebra and Introductory Algebra, Custom Edition for Calhoun
Community College, by Marvin L. Bittinger and David J. Ellenbogen,
Pearson Custom Publishing. (Taken from Prealgebra and Introductory
Algebra, 2nd Edition by Marvin L. Bittinger and David J. Ellenbogen, Pearson
Education, Inc., 2008.) (Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14.)

b. *Laboratory manual(s) and/or additional notes/materials/supplies:

c. CD/DVD:
CD/DCD lecture presentations that accompany the textbook may be
available for viewing online or in the Developmental Math Lab.

4. INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS

a. MyMathLab is the software used for this course. Students complete
homework, quizzes, and tests on the computer.
The textbook, along with
video lectures, animations, step-by-step examples, and many other
resources are available with the software.

b. Lab Assistants are available in the Developmental Mathematics Computer
Lab at the Decatur Campus to help students with their course work during
hours of operation.

To include information on the number and type of evaluation methods (exams,
quizzes, labs, homework, papers, etc.) with point or percentage values for each.

 A – Excellent (90 – 100) B – Good (80 – 89) C – Average (70 – 79) D – Poor (60 – 69) F – Failure (Below 60) IP – In Progress

IP as a letter grade indicates IN PROGRESS and may only be assigned to
institutional credit courses, practicums, and internships. The awarding of an
IP is the option of the instructor, provided the student has been in regular
attendance and has demonstrated conscientious effort yet has not achieved
course mastery. Students who receive an IP must repeat the course; it is not
satisfactory completion.

7. *WEEKLY OR DAILY LIST OF ASSIGNMENTS

To include required submissions of course requirements as shown in the
Grading Plan. (Note: Instructors should ensure that at least one major course
requirement (exam/paper/project) has been completed, graded, and returned
for student review prior to the end of the withdrawal period).

NOTE: Homework and quizzes for this course may be taken as many times as
the student wishes to do so, but Unit Tests and the Final Exam can only be
taken once.

8. *DATE, TIME, AND LOCATION OF FINAL EXAM

9. ATTENDANCE POLICY

Class attendance is required. The attendance policy is set by the college and
is in effect from the first time a class meets. If a student registers during the
drop/add period, attendance is counted from the first class meeting following
registration. Students whose absences exceed twice the number of weekly class
meetings in a regular 15-week semester can be involuntarily dropped from the
class roll by the instructor with a grade of W (withdrawal). The maximum
number of absences for an eight-week mini semester is two (2); for 10-week or
five-week summer courses, three (3); and for weekend courses, two (2).
Distance education students can be involuntarily withdrawn by the instructor if
the student has not communicated with the instructor by phone, email, or in
person within the first two weeks of a semester.

Students are responsible for activities missed during any absence, and make-up
work will be governed by the instructor as stated in the course syllabus. It is
the student’s responsibility to keep a record of his/her absences and to
understand specific policies detailed in each course syllabus. Communication
with the instructor concerning absences is essential. Appeals of involuntary
withdrawals are made at the divisional level to the division chairperson.

Military personnel who are involuntarily called to active duty for unscheduled
and or emergency situations and those individuals called for jury duty will be
excused. Official documentation will be required. College-related events such
as field trips, athletic competitions, and drama productions, which are
documented by the college, will also be excused. Official documentation will be
required.

Each course syllabus will contain a makeup policy, a statement of the
maximum number of absences allowed in the course and if the instructor
will be assigning the grade of W if the maximum number of absences is
exceeded.

10. *MAKEUP POLICY/HOW TO MAKE UP MISSED WORK

Students are allowed one make-up test which must be taken during the last
week of regular classes.

11. DISCRIMINATION/HARASSMENT STATEMENT

The College and the Alabama State Board of Education are committed to
providing both employment and educational environments free of harassment
or discrimination related to an individual’s race, color, gender, religion, national
origin, age, or disability. Such harassment is a violation of State Board of
Education policy. Any practice or behavior that constitutes harassment or
discrimination will not be tolerated.

12. WITHDRAWAL POLICY

Effective from the day after the Drop/Add period through the last day of classes
(prior to final examinations), students may withdraw and receive a grade of W or
faculty may initiate a withdrawal and assign a grade of W if the student exceeds
the number of absences in the college’s attendance policy.

13. DISABILITY STATEMENT

If you have a disability that might require special materials, services, or
assistance, please contact Calhoun’s Disability Services Office in the Chasteen
Student Center, Second Floor, Room 220 (Decatur Campus) or call (256) 306-
2630 or (256) 306-2635.
