Welcome to the home page
for Sections ES32 and ES34
of MATH-1150 (College Algebra)
at Southeast Community College
in the Spring term of 2016.
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 10th 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 assignments 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 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 should be able to find those here.
