Course Description

Welcome to MAT 142! The purpose of this course is to relate college-level mathematics to real-life problems. We will emphasize problem-solving techniques, specifically by means of discussing concepts including proportional reasoning, sets, probability, statistics, and finance. Applies basic college-level mathematics to real-life problems. Appropriate for students whose major does not require MAT 117 or 170.

Course Objectives Students will be able to apply proportional reasoning to solve a range of problems.

• Students will learn about sets, set notation, set operations and use set theory to solve • problems Students will learn basic counting techniques and a variety of strategies to solve • probability-based problems Students will apply a variety of statistical measures to solve problems • Students will solve a variety of financial-based problems including problems involving • simple and compound interest, annuities, and amortized loans.

Prerequisites This course is open to students whose major does not require MAT 119, MAT 170, or MAT 210 and who have completed MAT 106, MAT 113 or MAT 117 with C or better or completed the ALEKS Math Placement Test with a score of 30% or higher or completed MAT 194: EFM (now MAT 110) with skills mastered for MAT 142.

Course Materials & Structure Textbook You are not required to purchase a textbook for this course. Reading materials will be provided in each lesson as.PDF chapters.

If you would like to purchase a hard copy (available for purchase at the ASU bookstore) we are using the following text:

MAT 142 Course Syllabus | Fall 2012 A Page 1 MAT 142 Course Syllabus | Fall 2012 A Mathematics All Around, 4th Edition (Custom Package); by Thomas L. Pirnot; Pearson Custom Publishing; ISBN 0-558-326153-0 Calculator At minimum, a scientific calculator is required for this course. A few of the recommended models include the TI-30XS Multiview, TI-34 Multiview, TI-36, TI-83, and TI-84. A graphing calculator is not required. You are expected to bring your calculator to class daily. Cellular phone calculators are not permitted in class or during an exam. Also, the sharing of calculators is not permitted during exams.

Diagnostic Assessment A diagnostic assessment is administered online before you begin each section to determine your learning path and the content materials you will receive. You are expected to watch the video for each section before completing the diagnostic assessment. The diagnostic assessment results do not get calculated into your final course grade.

Knewton Study Center The information you receive in the Knewton Study Center could differ from your classmates depending on your results of the diagnostic quizzes and understanding of the course material. You are expected to work out solutions to problems and take notes while interacting with the online content just as if you were in a traditional lecture. You can use these notes as you prepare for your exams or in class for the problem solving sessions. All material in the Knewton Study Center must be completed by Friday, October 12.

No credit will be given for work completed after October 12.

Problem Solving Sets Written problem solving activities are an integral part of learning mathematics. You will complete one problem solving set each week. Each Monday, you will receive a problem set via email based on the most recent lessons you have completed. Each problem set must be completed and returned two days later (on Wednesday) by 11:59 pm. You may either hand write the solutions to the problems or use equation editor to write the math. You will submit the solutions using the dropbox in Learning Studio. If your solutions are handwritten, you can scan them or take a picture of them and submit that image. You will need to make sure that you name and the date are on each problem set.

Exams You will take five unit exams during the semester according to the deadlines listed below.

Based on the recommended pace of the course you should not have any trouble meeting these deadlines. Each exam will involve a mix of mechanical skills and conceptual reasoning. You only get a single attempt at each unit exam. Once you put in the exam password, you attempt has started and must be completed in 90 minutes. No exam scores will be dropped.

The first four exams can be taken on your home computer in an unproctored setting.


The only approved proctoring is to use ProctorU (http://www.proctoru.com/). The students will bear all costs for this option. The student will make all arrangements and a web cam is required.

MAT 142 Course Syllabus | Fall 2012 A Page 2 MAT 142 Course Syllabus | Fall 2012 A A lock down browser is required to take an exam. See the technology requirements section for a link to a browser and installation instructions.

It is not possible to access an exam without a password that will be provided by the instructor for the first four exams. The password for the last exam will be provided by the proctor. You should email your request for each password once you have completed half of the sections in a unit.

Course Expectations You are expected to complete a minimum of 4 sections per week as outlined on the • course schedule.

Over the course of the semester, you are expected to remain on schedule and “On • Track” as designated by your instructor. Students who are “Off Track” by the day/time designated by your instructor may receive a loss of points for your participation grade.

Attendance All First Year Mathematics courses have an attendance/participation policy. In an online • course such as this one, any of the following is reason to receive a grade on EN for “nonattendance”.

• Failure to take any exam by the deadline.

• Failure to score at least 50% on 3 or more lessons before the deadline for taking that unit’s tests. A lesson is a single lesson in one of the sections (i.e.: lesson 1.2a in section 1.2 in unit 1), the syllabus quiz, or the required email.

All students are required to email the instructor no later than 11:59 pm Friday, • August 24 as “attendance” for the first week of class. Any student who has not “attended” class during the first week of classes may be administratively dropped from the course. However, students should be aware that non-attendance will NOT automatically result in being dropped from the course. Thus, a student should not assume they are no longer registered for a course simply because they did not attend class during the first week. It is the student's responsibility to be aware of their registration status.

Students cannot be dropped for the course for non-attendance/non-participation once • they have attended/participated in the class.

–  –  –

Participation Grade Each week on Thursday, your progress will be checked to determine if you are on • schedule according to the Course Schedule below. If you are on schedule, you will receive your participation points for the week.

Student Resources / Computer Lab Your primary resource for tutoring is the computer lab. During non-class and non testing times, tutors will be available to answer questions for you regarding the course content. You can also visit the Student Success Center.

Specific hours for when a MAT 142 tutor is available at the Student Success Center can be found on their webpage at:


Another tutoring resource is Student Success online tutoring. Students interested in • receiving online tutoring can go to http://tutoring.asu.edu/online to schedule a one hour appointment with a tutor. Online sessions will be in small groups, with a maximum of three students per one-hour time slot. Students should most certainly be informed that they are not guaranteed one-on-one math tutoring online. The web side will have the most up-to-date available tutoring hour.

If you own a laptop computer, you are encouraged to bring it with you to the computer • lab when you are working on course content or taking an exam.

The Technology Studio can check your laptop or personal computer free of charge to • make sure you are ready to access all the course content from your computer. If you choose to use your laptop for exams, the Technology Studio can also assist you in installing the secure browser required for testing.

You must wear headphones while in the computer lab and while using your computer in • class.

Evaluation Activities

This course requires students to complete four important evaluation activities:

• Success in ASU Math Study Consent Form

• ACES Pre-test

• ACES Post-test

• Engagement Survey Your course website includes detailed information about the evaluation activities, how long it takes to complete each one, and when each one should be completed. It will take about 45 minutes total over the semester to complete all four evaluation activities. Don’t forget you will need to include your name and ASURITE ID on each evaluation activity in order to get credit for completing the task. NOTE: If you took MAT 194, MAT 142 or MAT 117 in Fall 2011 or Spring 2012, your course included the same evaluation activities. You will need to complete the evaluation activities again in this course.

How to Succeed in this Course Staying on schedule according to schedule included below and “on track” is a critical • component of student success in this course. Stay ahead of schedule and make sure you are aware of all the resources available to you that are listed in the syllabus and on the course site so you don’t fall behind.
