Fundamentals of Algebra II > Syllabus (2023)

Math Department Guidelines & Information:

  • There are many websites and apps like cymath or photomath that will do your math for you. These can be helpful if used appropriately, but there is no substitute for the time, thought and practice that enable students to learn material sufficiently to perform well on tests; which typically compose half your grade. It is plagiarism to turn in work from any source that does not represent your own thinking.
  • Part of the credit for most math assignments is from the work that leads to the solution.
  • Textbooks for RCC math courses (MTH20, MTH60, MTH63, MTH65, MTH95, MTH96) are all available for free at the math website: Mathematics | RCC
  • A final exam score of 70% is required to pass MTH20, MTH60, & MTH65

Deadlines for Attendance and Adding, Dropping, or Withdrawing from a Course

Administrative Drop: Students in face to face classes who are registered prior to the first day of the term in term-length classes or non-term length classes that begin week 1, who do not attend at least 50% of the first week’s class sessions or have an excused absence may be administratively dropped for non-attendance. For online classes, students who are registered prior to the first day of the term in term-length classes, who do not submit an assignment by Wednesday of the first week of the term may be administratively dropped for non-attendance.

First week of the term Attendance: This portion of the procedure applies only to classes that student have registered in for prior to the first day of the term. For credit classes students must attend or they may be dropped for non-attendance. Instructors will take attendance during the first week of the term for each class session. For in-person classes, students who do not attend at least 50 percent of the first week’s class sessions will be recorded as absent, unless they have an excused absence for that date. For web classes, students who do not submit an assignment by Wednesday of the first week of the term will be recorded as absent. Students unable to attend class during the first week class must contact the instructor prior to the class meeting to request an excused absence, if they wish to avoid being dropped from that class due to non-attendance. Students who do not meet these attendance requirements during the first week and do not have an excused absence may be dropped from the class.

Students dropped from a class or classes for non-attendance will receive a refund of tuition and fees according to college policy. Students dropped from classes will receive notice of their enrollment status.

When a student registers for a class or classes, the student becomes financially responsible for the tuition and fees. Lack of approved financial aid or failure of an agency to provide funding does not relieve the student of this financial obligation. Students may be dropped from classes due to non-payment of tuition. The College is not responsible for liabilities associated with drop for non-attendance of students. Reference AP 5070 Attendance

***First week attendance dates are only applicable to courses that begin in Week 1. First week attendance requirements do not apply for late-start classes that begin in Week 2 or later. ***

End of Term Attendance: Instructors will record students' last date of attendance at end of the term for students who have non-passing grades. For in-person classes, attendance is based on the last date the student either attended the class or submitted an assignment. For web classes, attendance is based on the last day a student engaged in an academically related activity such as submitting an assignment or a test. It is not the last date the student logged on, but did not submit assigned work.

Students who stop attending but do not officially drop, withdraw, or notify Enrollment Services will receive the grade that they earned based on syllabus requirements. If that grade is F, Incomplete, or NP the last date of attendance will be used for reporting withdraw information to the National Student Clearinghouse, National Student Loan Data System and used for potential return to Title IV financial aid repayment calculations. (Reference AP 5070 Attendance)

Refund policy: For term-length classes, students may drop a class until January 9, 2023 and receive a refund. After that there is no refund.

Withdrawal from class: For term-length classes, a student may withdraw from a class between January10 through February 24 at 11:59 pm, a grade of W will be assigned. (Reference Add/Drop/Withdraw from Classes) W grades impact a student credit completion rate (PACE) and their Satisfactory Academic Standing (SAP).

One-day classesOne day prior to class meetingFirst day of class
One-week classesThe day of the first class meetingThe day of the last class meeting
Two-week classes or longerThe day of the first class meetingOne day before the last class meeting

Waitlist process: Students waitlisted for a face to face class must attend the first week and ask the instructor for the “Permission Code” to register for the class. Students waitlisted for an online class may use the Blackboard email inbox or email the instructor and ask for the “Permission Code” to register for the class. If the instructor gives you the code, log on to My Rogue, choose “Register with Permission Code” from the Registration Resources Menu, enter the code and follow the online instructions for completing your registration. Students have until Monday of the second week of the term to get officially registered in class with a "Permission Code" provided by the instructor. Not all students waitlisted will be given the permission code. If you are given a permission code, do not share it with any other students. If you share a permission code, both you and the other student will be dropped from the class. The waitlist expires Friday (Thursday for Summer term) of the first week of the term at 4 PM. Students who were waitlisted for an online class or a class with a web-based component, are able to log into Blackboard and follow the class up until the waitlist expires. Once the waitlist expires students will no longer be able to access the classes Blackboard information, and any work submitted for the class will not be saved by the instructor. Students who have not registered by the waitlist expiration deadline, but think they will get permission after the first week, must save any Blackboard work they have submitted to their own computer hard drive.

Academic Integrity

Academic Integrity is expected for all students at RCC. Learning is built on the qualities of honesty, fairness, respect, and trust. At RCC, academic integrity is a shared endeavor characterized by truth, personal responsibility, and high academic standards. An important aspect of academic integrity is academic honesty. Violations of academic honesty include, but are not limited to: plagiarism, collusion, inappropriate assistance, cheating, fabrication, falsification, alteration, unauthorized multiple submission, sabotage, tampering, and sharing classroom documents, including test items, with other students or with online platforms. All acts of academic dishonesty are regarded as serious offenses. Students who violate academic honesty or academic integrity will be subject to disciplinary action. Instructors have the right to take action on any suspected acts of academic dishonesty. Depending on the nature of the offense, serious penalties may be imposed, ranging from loss of points to expulsion from the class or college.
