II. COURSE DESCRIPTION
Mathematics 130, Precalculus Mathematics II, is the second of a two-semester sequence that provides the background for students who are preparing to take calculus. Topics include graphing, systems of equations, matrices, complex numbers, mathematical induction, the binomial theorem, sequences and series, polar coordinates, parametric equations, trigonometric functions, inverse trigonometric functions, law of sines, law of cosines, and trigonometric identities. Prerequisites: MATH 129 or equivalent or consent of department. A graphing calculator is required.

c. Programs prepare prospective teachers who can make and evaluate mathematical conjectures and arguments and validate their own mathematical thinking.
d. Programs prepare prospective teachers whoˇ
i. Show an understanding of the interrelationships within mathematics.
ii. Connect mathematics to other disciplines and real-world situations.
e. Programs prepare prospective teachers whoˇ
i. Use calculators in computational and problem-solving situations.
ii. Use computer software to explore and solve mathematical problems.
11. TEACHER PREPARATION
2.1 Programs prepare prospective teachers who can identify and model strategies used for problem-solving in grades 7-12.
a. Programs prepare prospective teachers who use graphing calculators, computers and other technologies as tools for teaching mathematics.
VI. EVALUATION CRITERIA/GRADING SCALE
There will be four tests and a comprehensive final exam. The grading scale for determining the course grade and the weights assigned to tests, final examination, and homework are given below. The in class tests and final exam will be graded on a 100 point scale. Partial credit for problems is awarded on the basis of work shown. Homework will be collected randomly at a rate averaging about once a week and given a grade of either pass or fail. Only a few homework problems will be graded but all problems must be attempted and all work must be shown. The homework score will depend on the percentage of passing grades assigned for collected assignments. Late homeworks will not be accepted and the final exam grade will be used as the grade for all tests that are missed. Make up tests will not be given. The lowest score for an in class test can be replaced with the Final Exam grade (if it helps) and the class test average will be computed as in the example below. The percentage of passing homework grades will be multiplied by four, rounded, and the result added to the final average.
To see how your grade will be calculated, suppose your test scores are 85, 81, 84, and 90, your final exam score is 88 and you received a passing grade on 50% of the homework collected. Since the lowest test grade is dropped (see item 1 under COURSE REQUIREMENTS), your grade would be calculated as follows:
0.20 * [ (81 + 85 + 84 + 90) ] + 0.20 * 88 = 85.6
85.6 + .50*4 = 85.6 + 2 = 87.6 = 88
Since 88 is between 80 and 89 you would receive a grade of B.
Weights Assigned to graded materials:
|In Class Tests||20% Each|
|Comprehensive Final Examination||20%|
|Homework||4% Extra Credit|
|A||90 - 100%||Tests 80%|
|B||80 - 89%||Final Exam 20%|
|C||70 - 79%|
|D||60 - 69%|

VIII. TEACHING STRATEGIES
Math 130 is a lecture-based course. Each lecture will contain a summary of the most important concepts from each chapter. The graphing calculator will be utilized to bring clarity and understanding to each concept or theory discussed. Questions will be posed to the class daily to measure their comprehension of particular concepts.
IX. COURSE REQUIREMENTS
Conduct of Course/Classroom Decorum
|1.||Students are responsible for availing themselves of all class meetings, Tutorial sessions, computer lab sessions, and individual help from the instructor. There are computer software tutorials available for your use in the Helen Chick Building, second floor and SBE 216A. (See the Lab Assistants)|
|2.||Students are responsible for maintaining a notebook of problems selected by the instructor. Students are encouraged to include as many additional problems as is possible|
|3.||All tests will be announced prior to their administration. Since the lowest test will be dropped no make-up test will be given. There will be a test given at the end of each chapter and there will be a comprehensive final examination given. The students are also required to take the algebra profile posttest.|
|4.||Students are expected to enter the classroom on time and remain until the class ends. Late arrivals and early departures will be noted in the record book. The class attendance policy set forth in the 1996-1998 FSU Catalogue will be strictly adhered to.|
|5.||Students must refrain from smoking, eating, and drinking in the classroom. The rights of others must be respected at all times.|
|6.||Students are encouraged to ask questions of the instructor in class and to respond to those posed by the instructor. They should not discourage others from asking or answering questions. Other students often have the same questions on their minds, but are hesitant to ask.|
|7.||Students are expected to complete all class assignments and to spend adequate time on their class work and to read each topic prior to class discussion to insure that the course objectives are met. Two hours of home study is expected for each hour of class.|
|8.||Talking in class between students is strictly unacceptable. Discussions should be directed to the instructor.|
|9.||Extra recitation periods and/or computer lab attendance are mandatory for students whose grades fall below C. They must meet the instructor to arrange for extra activities.|
|10.||Dishonesty on graded assignments will not be tolerated. Students must neither give nor receive help on any work to be graded. The University policy on cheating will be applied to any violations. The minimum penalty will be a grade of zero on the assignment.|
