Course website


  All study materials for this course, including
  the textbook, can be accessed from our course
  website:
  www.math.fsu.edu/~wooland

  There is also a link to the course website on
  the BlackBoard page for this course.
Your syllabus

Your syllabus is on the web. You can access it from the
“Syllabus and Schedule…” link on our home page, or
from the “Syllabus” link on the BlackBoard page for this
course.
Your syllabus

You must read your syllabus.

Your syllabus contains all the operating rules for this
course, including such things as test dates, procedures
for make-ups and excused absences, the way your grade
is determined, and how to access your posted scores.
  Eligibility for MGF1106

Virtually everybody is eligible for MGF1106.

Rare exceptions
Either of these two cases make you ineligible:
1.Your math SAT is less than 470 AND your math ACT is less
than 21 AND you have not passed Intermediate Algebra
(MAT1033).
2.You have already passed THIS COURSE with a C- or
better.

Note that having taken other math courses, including higher
level math courses, does not affect your eligibility for this
class.
  Eligibility – International Baccalaureate

If you were an International Baccalaureate (IB) student in
    high school, your college transcript might already include
    credit for this course.

In that case, you should not take this course.

If you were an IB student and you aren’t sure if you already
    have credit for MGF1106, e-mail me and I will check.
   i>Clicker

We will use i>Clicker for class participation.

i>Clicker points will add extra credit to your quiz average.
To participate, you must purchase the clicker and register it
according to instructions.

You may not arrive late or leave early.
If you are going to attend this lecture class, please try to get
here on time, and stay for the whole class period.
  Attendance
For most students, skipping class is not a very good
idea.

In this course, almost every student who gets a D or F is a
student with poor attendance habits.

The typical D/F student in this course racks up more
absences in a two or three week period than their instructor
had in all of his courses combined over the many years that
he attended college.
  I>Clicker
We will start using I>Clicker in class ASAP.

Follow the instructions for registering your clicker.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your clicker is correctly
registered. For registration purposes, your “student
number” is your FSUID.

Important fact: Your FSUID is not the rectangular piece of
plastic bearing your photo. That thing is your FSUcard.

Your FSUID is the part of your FSU e-mail address that
comes before the “@” symbol. For example, if your e-mail
address is jrw57c@fsu.edu, then your FSUID is jrw57c.
   i>Clicker

When answering class participation questions, you should
always assume that getting the correct answer is important
(even though some questions may be graded in a way that
gives full credit for any answer).

A wrong answer is always better than no answer, so pay
attention to the timer, and at least make a guess before
time runs out on a question.


A. Yes, I get it.
B. No, I don’t get it.
   Your grade
Your grade is determined by
Average of three unit tests (75%)
Quiz average (15%)
Regular homework average (5%)
Finals Week Homework average (5%)


The grade scale is in your syllabus, along with other conditions that may
affect your grade.
   No Final Exam
This course does not have a final exam.

Instead, you will have a comprehensive series of four homework assignments
that are all due by noon, Thursday of finals week.

More details will be provided at the appropriate time.
   Homework
Your first homework assignment will be posted after drop/add ends.

At that time, you will be sent an e-mail explaining how to access homework for
this class.
All homework is done via the Internet, using our eGrade web server.

You will have one or two assignments each week (usually one), and you will have
several days or more to complete each assignment.

You get three attempts at each homework assignment. The highest of the three
scores is the one that counts in your homework average.
   Homework
Each homework assignment is intended to prepare you for the upcoming quiz or
test in lab.

For that reason, it is a bad idea to wait until after your quiz or test before
attempting the homework (even though you will have several days to complete an
assignment).

It is a good idea to ask questions about homework exercises that you don’t
understand.

You are always welcome to print problems from your homework and bring them to
lecture class for explanation.

Give printed problems to me before class starts.
I will usually have time to work at least a couple of homework exercises at the
beginning of each lecture class.
   Quizzes
Each Monday in lab (beginning Monday, Sept. 10) you will have a quiz, except on
days when you have a test.

There are no make-ups for missed quizzes.

If you have a documented, justifiable excused absence from a quiz, then the zero
for the missed quiz will not count in your quiz average.

The policy for missed tests is different.

Read your syllabus for more details.
   Tests
Test 1: Monday, October 1, in lab.
Test 2: Monday, October 29, in lab.
Test 3: Monday, December 3, in lab.

The policy for missed tests is different from the policy for missed quizzes.

Read your syllabus for more details.
If you know in advance that you have a conflict that will cause you to miss a test,
then you should discuss it with me in advance.
Wednesday

On Wednesday we will begin discussing
material from Part 1 Module 1 of the text.

Part 1 Module 1 is mainly an introduction, or
reintroduction, to some basic terminology
and notation from set mathematics.

The slideshow “Part 1 Module 1 preview” will
give you an idea of what to expect.
