Welcome to the home page
for Section ES32 of MATH-1150 (College Algebra)
at Southeast Community College
in the Summer term of 2015.
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 may 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
written by Sullivan and 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
integrated into the Moodle course;
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!
