Mr. Hanigosky's Algebra Classes
  
Welcome Parents/Guardians and Students!
 
Welcome to the YEC class page for advanced Algebra. Here you will find information regarding my classes. Please take time to review my syllabus below for details about the class to help you understand more of what we will be doing in class and what is expected from the students. With hard work and dedication, I am sure that every child will learn and succeed. Students who are in class every day, bring the required material, and put effort on their assignments will be the ones who gain the most. I thank you parents/guardians for your support and for all you do for your child.
 
Together we will have a successful experience!
Mr. Hanigosky

YSU Math 1510 –2017 Spring Semester

Addendum to YSU Math Department Syllabus

Course Objective: To become proficient in key concepts, vocabulary, and problem solving of College Algebra.

Major Topics: Refer to YSU departmental syllabus.

Mandatory Class Requirements:

Come prepared to work. You are expected to work on College Algebra during class time. If you are finished with all assignments, you can help the learning environment and earn extra credit by:

  • Helping classmates who are struggling with an assignment you’ve completed and mastered.
  • Research/solve additional topics/problems requiring higher order thinking and present results to class that can benefit your classmates.
  • Do an individual enrichment topic/project of your choice that interests you.

You are expected to participate and be a positive influence to the learning environment. This course is difficult and to succeed will take effort and perseverance in problem solving.

Attendance/Tardiness/Cell Phones: According to YEC school policy.

Homework Assignments:

  • Every student expected to try every assigned problem.
  • Most homework assignments will be done on WebAssign with a due date for each assignment. Missed assignments will be given a score of zero.
  • Students can ask for an extension on an individual assignment but will only granted a maximum of 5 extensions per semester. Late assignments will receive a score of 0-60% depending on circumstances.

A 0 will be recorded in gradebook upon the first grading of an assignment by instructor for any missing work. Assignments missed due to excused absences must be negotiated with the instructor.

Tests/Quizzes: Quizzes not announced. Tests will be announced 1 day early and generally are at end of every chapter. Giving only answers on tests/quizzes without supporting work will not be awarded full credit. Cheating will not be tolerated and will result in a score of 0. Use of a cell phone or other internet capable device during a test or quiz will be considered cheating and will result in a score of 0 since it is a violation of policy and can be used to communicate answers or to use widely available math apps. Cheating may result in YSU Code of Conduct Board disciplinary action.

Make-up work:

THIS IS A COLLEGE COURSE! Responsibility of student! Make up work does have to be approved by instructor. Make-up exams (if approved) will be harder than the original to motivate students to take exams when they are originally scheduled. MAKE UP EXAMS WILL NOT RECEIVE AN “A” GRADE. INSTRUCTOR CAN CHOOSE TO UTILIZE THE YSU MATH ASSISTANT CENTER TO PROCTOR MAKEUP EXAMS.

A “0” will be recorded in gradebook until the student has made up missing work. Quizzes or exams not made up in a timely manner will remain a zero.

Grading: This course is designed so that you will not be successful on exams if you do not do the homework. FINAL EXAM WILL BE A YSU DEPARTMENTAL FINAL. YSU ONLY ALLOWS ARITHMATIC CALCULATORS DURING “SOME” EXAMS AND “NO CALCULATOR” ON OTHERS. Final course grade will consists of the final weighted at 30% and all other assignments weighted at 70% broken down further as follows:

WebAssign Homework/Classwork 30%

Gateway Exam/Unit Exams/Quizzes 50%

Other (attendance, participation, BEHAVIOR, 20%

- other miscellaneous)
