The virtual labs deepen the homework learning experience and prepare students to make more effective use of their time in the lab. Empower your students to take control of their learning with virtual labs accessible anywhere internet is available!Visit www.quansercontrollabs.com for additional information related to Quanser. Supervised Learning works on the fundamental of linear programming. A system is trained to fit on a mathematical model of a function from the labeled input data that can predict values from an unknown test data. Well, the applications of Linear programming don’t end here. There are many more applications of linear programming in realworld.

A good quality Algebra II duringhigh school or a college course at the level of Intermediate Algebra (Math 114)will provide you with the needed problem solving skills.

Expectto Think and Evaluate, not just regurgitate!!!
Each chapter section will have a problem assignmentto be completed:Practice problemassignments and HandIn problem assignments.The appendices of the textbook contains answers to thepractice problems.Student groupswho work together on practice assignments may find that team study isbeneficial to all students of the team.Practice problems will NOT be graded.
When assigned the handin problems of asection assignment will be graded. The average of all graded homework during thesemester will be equivalent to one test grade in determining your final coursegrade. A due date will beannounced for each homework assignment and the assignment must be handed in atbeginning of class on the given date.Late homework will be penalizedper the Homework Requirements handout.
The handin assignment will not provide enoughpractice to be able to remember a concept and be able to demonstrate thatconcept accurately on a test.GradedHomework should be an individual project rather than a team effort.Students who cover their lack ofunderstanding by depending too much on others may fail tests and eventuallyfail the course.
Graded homework provides a student with feedback regarding how well theyare understanding and performing the concepts of a chapter plus utilization ofproper notation and work shown.
There will be computer lab projectsassigned.We will be using the Excelspreadsheet for Windows software.Each project will be evaluated and collectively they will be equivalentto 1 test.Due dates for computerprojects will generally precede the test which covers the concepts in theproject.These computer activitieswill give you some experience in working with computer software, which is apowerful tool to handle the number crunching and data analysis for applicationproblems.
Tests will be announced in advance and will beabout 50 minutes in length.Eachtest will be normalized to 100 pts.These tests should be taken during the scheduled period unless prior arrangements aremade.As soon as you know that youwill be absent on a test date, please notify the instructor.
There isno provision for makeup tests or retests.
Graded test will usually be available by the nextclass session, thus if you miss thescheduled test you must contact the instructor prior to the next scheduledclass session else receive a zero on the exam.
Formulasheets are provided with each test.
Test 1:Chapters1 & 2 100points
Test 2: Chapters3 & 4100points
Test 3: Chapters5 & 6100points
Test 4: Chapters7, 8100points
Test 5:Chapters9, 11, 12100points
Homework 100points
Computer Project(s)100points
TOTAL POINTSPOSSIBLE  700
Your final letter grade is determined by dividing yourtotal points earned by the 700 total possible points. Letter grade isdetermined by scale listed earlier.

Gradesare determined by the level of mastery of the subject that you have demonstrated.Grades do not measure your abilityto learn.Grades do notmeasure how much effort has been applied.Grades do not reflect information about exterior reasons fora student's performance.But keepin mind that mastery is hardest to achieve when attendance is poor, study isnot regular, practice exercises are not done regularly, nor completely.
Manythings impact a grade:personalhealth, family health, work, family obligations, social life, math background,effort, priorities, college activities, etc.
Thisis college, I expect you to be responsible for your actions, good or not sogood.

Math faculty schedule office hours so that they areavailable to help students.Student tutors in math are employed by the college in an effort toexpand upon the hours per week during which help with mathematics isavailable.
