in trigonometry. Other topics are conic sections, matrices
and determinants, and sequences .
will be three tests (100 pts each), three quizzes (20 pts each), and ten
(unannounced) short worksheet checks (5 pts each). The grade for the course
is based on the scale:
A 360 - 410 pts, B 320-359 pts; C 280-319

Homework will be assigned, but not graded. Students' attendance and work
on homework wil be graded through the unannounced worksheet checks, which
will be made of two homework problems. Also the problems on the tests and
quizzes will be very similar to homework problems.
