Welcome to the home page
for sections ES31 and ES33
of MATH-1150 (College Algebra)
at Southeast Community College
in the Spring term of 2012.
I am Toby Bartels, the instructor.
Here are some useful links for the administration of the course:
If you miss a homework assignment, then you can find it here.
Eventually the solutions to most quizzes and exams will show up here too.
Although only quizzes and exams contribute directly to your grade,
attendance and homework are also important.
- Attendance (taken every day);
- Homework (assigned nearly every day);
- Quizzes (given nearly every day):
- Exams (April 30 or May 1 and June 4 or 5).
The official textbook for the course
is the 9th Edition of Algebra & Trigonometry
published by Prentice-Hall (Pearson).
You should be able to get this at the bookstore,
and the homework problems will come from it.
I also have some notes for lectures, hand-outs, and so forth.
If you missed class, then you might be able to find a substitute here.
But there is no guarantee that everything will show up!
