# COURSE SYLLABUS FOR GENERAL MATHEMATICS I

Program Goal

The goal of the General Education program that pertains to the Mathematics Unit is:

To ensure that students possess a breadth of knowledge and skills through integrated study of coursework in various
disciplines.

Program Learning Outcomes ( PLO)

1. Students will gain knowledge of the liberal arts and sciences from 42-68 credit hours (depending on the major) of
General Education/Core Curriculum integrated courses in the humanities/fine arts; social/ behavioral sciences;
natural science/ mathematics; physical science; and allied health professions for which course syllabi specify
expected student learning outcomes.
2. Students will demonstrate their skills in reading, writing, critical thinking, mathematics, and science.
3. Students will demonstrate a multidisciplinary perspective.

Course Description

This is a University Core Course in Mathematics taken by Freshmen. Students in this course are expected to have
successfully completed or placed out of MAT 110. The students in this course are introduced to functions, graphs,
linear inequalities, matrices, linear programming, the metric system, geometry, and consumer mathematics. The
students are trained in critical thinking and problem solving skills to be applied to real world situations like
mortgage, credit card interests and other topics. This course is the second of a three- sequence study in college
mathematics.

Course Evaluation:

 Assignment Percentage of Final Course Grade Quizzes/Homework 30% Tests 40% Comprehensive Final Examination 30% Total 100 %

The following grading scale will be used: A = 90-100; B = 80-89; C = 70-79; D = 60-69; F = 59 and below.
In general, make-up tests or quizzes will not be given, unless in extra-ordinary circumstances.

Sometime during the semester you will be asked to complete Student Evaluation ( on line ) of your instructor.
Please make sure you do complete this . The completion of this might earn you some extra points.

Attendance Policy:

Students who miss classes are responsible for subject matter covered, any announcements made regarding quiz, test
or any other relevant matter, during their absence.

More than 3 (if class meets 3 times a week ) or 2 (if class meets 2 times a week ) unexcused absences may result in
failure in the course. You are responsible to find out or know about any announcements or the subject matter

Student Classroom Decorum Expectations:

To enhance the learning atmosphere of the classroom, students are expected to dress and behave in a fashion
conducive to learning in the classroom. More specifically, students will refrain from disruptive classroom behavior i.
e., talking to classmates, disrespectful responses to teacher instructions; swearing; wearing clothes that impede
academic learning such as but not limited to, wearing body-revealing clothing and excessively baggy pants;
hats/caps, and/or headdress . Food or drinks will not be allowed in the class room or lab. Students will turn off their
cell phones prior to entering the classroom. Students who exhibit the behaviors described above, or similar
behaviors will be immediately dismissed from class at the third documented offense. The student will be readmitted
to class only following a decision by the department chair. The student may appeal the decision of the department
chair to the Dean of the College offering the course, and, subsequently, to the Office of the Vice President for
Academic Affairs, and then to the President of Shaw University. The decision of the President will be final. Failure
to follow the procedures herein outlined will result in termination of the appeal, and revert to the decision of the
department chair.

Each behavior construed by the teacher/professor as noncontributive to learning will be recorded, properly
documented, and appropriately reported to the student and to the chair of the academic department offering the
course. The report will be in written form with a copy provided to both the student and the department chair. The
faculty member should retain a copy for his/her own records.

Additional student behavior codes may be found in Student Affairs.
