Welcome to the home page for Section ES31 of MATH-0950 (Beginning Algebra) at Southeast Community College in the Summer term of 2017. I am Toby Bartels, the instructor.


Here is material about the administration of the course:


If you miss an assignment, then you can find it here. Most graded work is done in class; although it can be made up outside of class, regular attendance is important.


The official textbook for the course is the 4th Edition of Elementary & Intermediate Algebra written by Sullivan et al and published by Prentice-Hall (Pearson). You should be able to get this at the bookstore (in hardback or looseleaf), and most assignments will come from it. (This same book is used for MATH-1100 too.) If you get the book with online access, you can also use MyMathLab integrated into the Moodle course; this is optional. (If you bought MyMathLab access for a previous course using this book, then you may need to see me about a free upgrade, but you shouldn't have to pay for it again.) One way or another, you need a copy of this edition of this textbook.

I also have some lecture notes, hand-outs, links, and so forth. Many of these will be part of the assigned reading, so let me know if you have any difficulty accessing them.

That's it!
