Welcome to Intermediate Algebra course. My name is Andranik Hakobyan, and I will be your instructor for this course. Feel free to email me if you have questions or need help. This orientation letter will provide you with helpful information as you prepare for our class.

Course Description

The course examines functions and equations involving linear, radical, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic and absolute-value functions as well as other algebraic topics including radicals, rational exponents, inequalities and conics.  

What to Expect in this Course

Regular attendance is required. You must attend the first class meeting via Zoom at the scheduled day/time. Any student absent on the first day will be dropped unless I am notified in advance with a valid reason. You need to be available and will be expected to join our weekly live Zoom sessions throughout the semester. If you cannot attend regularly or on time, and stay for the entire duration of the class, it might be a good idea to take this class at another time that better fits your availability.

You will be expected to work on the course material consistently and keep up with deadlines (homework assignments, quizzes, exams). If you stop completing online work or stop attending our live Zoom sessions, you may be dropped from the course.

Types of Assessments

Online homework, quizzes, exams, final exam, groupwork. All assignments will be given through Pearson 'MyMathLab".

Textbook Information / Link to ZTC Textbook

You will need a custom Access Code for this course, so do not purchase anything. I will provide you with the correct access code after the semester starts. Electronic version of the textbook is available online once you login to our MyMathLab course, so you do not need to purchase a hard copy of the textbook. Without the Access Code you will not be able to complete any of the necessary work and will be dropped from the course. As a courtesy, the publisher allows students free temporary access for two weeks, so my recommendation is not to purchase an access code until the 3rd week of the semester. I hope that by that time you will be certain this learning modality is a good fit for you.
