Textbook: A Transition to Higher Mathematics, 5^{th} edition, by Smith, Eggen
and St. Andre. We will cover Chapters 15.
Course Description: Logic (propositions, connectives, conditionals, quantifiers), mathematical proofs, set theory, mathematical induction, relations, functions, cardinality of sets.
Learning Objectives:
Homework: After each lesson, I will assign homework problems from the text that are not to be returned in and graded but that are meant to reflect the sort of question you can expect on tests. I encourage you to use my office hours if you have any questions about them.
Graded Assignments: I will periodically assign homework to be turned in for a grade. These assignments will be worth a total of 30% toward your final grade. You are not to collaborate or discuss the problems with anyone but me and you may not use any outside sources of information except your textbook. (See Academic Dishonesty Policy.)
Tests: There will be a test every fifth Friday, three in all, and will be worth a total of 45% toward your final grade. Test dates: Sep. 24, Oct. 29, Dec. 3.
Final exam: The final exam will be worth 25% toward your final grade.
Grading Scale: A: 86100, B: 7285, C: 5871, D: 4457, F: 043.
Grading: Your final grade will be determined as follows: Graded Assignments – 30%, Tests – 45% and Final exam – 25%.
ACADEMIC DISHONESTY
Academic dishonesty is NOT tolerated. It will result in failure on assignment(s) as well as possible disciplinary sanction(s) as stipulated by university rules. State University of
West Georgia Student Conduct Code defines academic dishonesty as cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, and facilitating or allowing academic dishonesty in any academic exercise.
Cheating: Using or attempting to use unauthorized materials, information or study aids;
Fabrication: Falsification or unauthorized invention of any information or citation;
Plagiarism: Representing the words or ideas of another as one's own. Direct quotations must be indicated and ideas of another must be appropriately acknowledged.
Academic dishonesty in any form compromises your grade and lowers the quality of your diploma. A fellow student who cheats may actually lower your grade, sometimes causing unfair and inflated grading scales. I hope each of you values your college education enough to protect yourself from dishonest classmates.
