Welcome to the home page
for Sections ES32 and ES36
of MATH-1150 (College Algebra)
at Southeast Community College
in the Spring term of 2013.
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 some solutions to graded homework will show up here too.
Although only homework and the final exam contribute directly to your grade,
attendance is also important.
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 most homework problems will come from it.
(This same book is used for MATH-1200 too,
so you might want to check both shelves in the bookstore.)
If you pay for it,
you can also use MyMathLab
with Course ID
this is optional.
I also have some lecture notes, hand-outs, links, 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!
